Rally Wheels on ABM LS Camaro
 
I know Chevy has to put steel wheels on the base LS models, but I just think tose wheels are so ugly. Why not bring back the classic rally wheel. Here's how I think the base LS should look.

IMHO and in the nicest way possible, that is a NO GO, yuck!:yikes:

I think those are a bit outdated, but are interesting. Instead, I'd go with the Torq Thrusts. I'll see if I can do a mockup today.

I'm sure the Torq Thrusts would look better, but I was just thinking of a factory steel wheel alternative.

Don't listen to them, they don't realize that is the most popular wheel design for classic chevys. I was hoping that was actually the design that they were going to go with when they announce the heritage design steel wheels. neverless I was very dissapointed when I saw the design they went with...

That was what I was thinking. What's a more common steel wheel found on a '67-'69 Camaro than the 14" or 15" rally wheels? None! I personally think those wheels really tie in the look of the 1st Gen Camaro on the 5th Gen. IMHO

No, I realize this. I just don't think it works with the new design of the body. After all, the 2010 is a new model that takes cues from the first gens along with some from the other generations. As much as people would like GM to, in one way or another, reproduce the '60s body, I don't think that's what their intent is on the 2010 model.

Personally, I've never really liked hubcaps. Though the first gen's steel wheels as above work best in my opinion, I don't think anything that resembles a hubcap belongs on the new Camaro. Just my opinion.

Rally wheels: Yuck

Torq Thrusts: Classic and beautiful yet cliche. I have them on my 92 Z28 and love them, But everyone has them
