Ok before I buy these today, are they genuine 19" VX GTS?
Iv been told LB Racing also got the GTS rim contract when ROH failed to stamp 3k VX GTS rims. Is he correct and these are possibly genuines? Iv asked owner for a pic of the stamps on inside too.

Cheap knock offs. No idea what the guy is on about sounds like BS to me.

They look like Monaro CV8 copies. And even if some other company did get a contract with Holden I really doubt Holden would let them put their own company's logo in the centre cap.

ONLY ROH made the rims for HSV, Full stop, thats where the story ends. Shonky bull S$%& story tell him you'll take them off his hands with cash your way.
And then sell them to the scrap aluminium recyclers.

Looking at the cv8 rims it kinda looks like they merged the designs of monaro cv8 and vx gts rims to make these knock offs.

A mate actually said it, not the seller. The seller funnily enough went really weird wen I asked him for pics of inside of rims and now won't sell them to me. Lol
I have the same rims on my vx atm but in 18" and they are mirror chrome dipped

They're cheap Monaro CV8-R knock offs
And the pic below illustrates why you should avoid cheap knock off wheels like the plague
