chrisinlittlerock 05-01-2009 01:42 PM

Wow I really don't like those.

Richochet83 05-01-2009 01:45 PM

The rims on the renderings can not be to scale with the car. It looks like those are 24" which are too big.

22" will look nice. If you look at the GMPP 21" rims they look smallish, so those pics are misleading.

22" will look marginally bigger...

Yeah I think they are scaled much closer to 22's in the first pic over the second. They are way to big in the second pic!

I don't think the first pic in the original post is to scale... not even close.

I'm getting 22" rims and I know they will be more subtle than the ones above. I don't want anything too flashy.

Did you or can you get the weights on those diameters in 9" and 10" widths? If you look in the wheels section under the 22" thread I posted sizes, weights, and prices for HRE's, $ a bit more than the 360 forged. If you can get weights we should start a thread of wheel manufactures sizes and weights along with cost, this should be kept to custom/forged 2 and 3 piece wheels.

Thanks,
Jon

This is a sports car people...don't you want a little rubber under the wheels? The car will not only feel like crap while you're driving, but it won't perform as well either with those paper thin tires. I'm out on anything bigger than 20's.

Not really true. If you find a wheel and tire combo thats lighter than what the factory offers and you have a lower profile tire you will have less sidewall flex, and beable to use the suspension possibly better than with the factory setup.

The first picture its got a set of 21" GM Accessory wheels. How could they be scaled closer to 22s if they are 21s? :iono:

The OP's pictures are WAY too big to be 22s. More like 24s. Maybe someone could re-PS it to be more accurate. :D

2010SS 05-01-2009 08:54 PM

that vette looks hot! i think the 22" wheels wont look like the renderings , i guess to get weight from them i would have to call back. Any help? lol

I'd prefer 19's on the SS, but I don't think the brakes allow for that.

Yes it is. The bigger the wheel, even if it is a bit lighter, has more inertia. A 10% increase in diameter means that the rim would have to weigh 18% less in order for it to not lose straight line performance. It becomes less responsive to acceleration and to braking. This is why it is always recomended to upgrade the brakes when larger wheels are used. Additionally, the smaller sidewalls have less flex but again, that hurts acceleration. Not to mention durability, a pothole at low speed with rubber band tires can damage those expensive rims. I'm also not too sure about the comment about being able to use the suspension better than the factory. GM tuned the suspension on the SS to the 20" wheels. So unless you tweak it to allow for the different weight, handling might be worse than before.

Im gonna see if my current 22's will fit the maro.

Chemical 05-02-2009 12:42 PM

Right, the bigger the wheel the less performance. Everyone would agree in general. I don't know if everyone races their vehicle when going to work but when I get my 22" rims they will have a lot of tire to them (the most that would fit the wheel well).

Since I wont be racing, its not a big deal. I think a lot of us wont be racing. (I'm guessing)

As you can see in the Camaro Black, there is sufficient room to add 22" rims while still maintaining a significant amount of tire to the rims... and yes, rubberband tires are a waste.

There are some C6s now running with a 21 rear rim with a 375 tire out back..:thumbup: All of us will just have to play with the car to see what is the best (personal opinion) and widest tire we can put under the car. :thumbup:

2010SS 05-03-2009 06:52 PM

i can understand performance wise to run 20" but how many people for the 2010 camaro is going to go strickly performance? Ive even seen srt8300 with 22" pushing 500 plus to the wheels with no problem , but then again i guess it up to the owner of the car.

josh1147 05-03-2009 07:52 PM

Regarding tire/rim combos....has anyone had any experience with Carbon Fiber rims? Pros and cons?
