Those are all brand new... If they are made by the original company who made them for GM or a replica company who knows.

those are all used and or reconditioned wheels. There are no replica's for ANY beretta alloy wheel

New GM wheels are about 400-500 each for a Beretta and do not include caps.


There was a notable exception Back in the early years of Beretta land there was a crazy deal at Tirerack.com They were selling 4 NIB "GTU" wheels(gray inserts) with Caps...R and L sides. for $200 a SET. They were marketed as winter wheels and bought up from some supplier that got hosed by GM. Those who picked them up got a bargain. The original wheels in 1990's prices were 500? each and 125 for each the caps.

Is everyone forgetting about the Lumina Van that also used our wheel? Or at least the exact same style with one exception, the gray was a different shade on them. I would consider those replica's in a sense, but I had not seen them used on anything else before or since.
