What's the difference between th RS & SS wheels?
 
What's the difference between th RS & SS wheels? They look the same.

I think the RS has the midnight silver painted wheels while the ss has just silver painted wheels.... they are both 20inches though

franknbeans 10-14-2008 10:03 PM

Yup I think you are correct Cole.

I also think there is a polished 20" but you can't select it with the RS package.

Are the RS wheels also the same style as the SS, just a different color?

fastfret7 10-14-2008 11:05 PM

So, before I leap out a window. What is the real draw of the RS package? One more thing, on the SS/RS which badging in on the grill?

The HID's/halos, taillights, midnight silver wheels. The SS gets red colored SS badging when paired with RS package.

Why would anyone at GM be so stupid as to dictate all RS or 20" tires would be summer tread???? Not good for Indiana or Michigan, Wisconsin, Canada. Is it take the 20" summer tires or forget the RS package????

It gets worse: On 2SS and 2LT, leather heated seats are mandatory. So you end up with a car that is recommended to be driven in the summer only, on summer tires, but with heated seats that are for use in the winter. GM should offer all-season tires on all 2010 Camaros.

Does any one have pics of the difference between the rs & ss wheels? I tried to look it up but cant tell any difference in color. I have the RS/2SS and was trying to figure out if I have the right colored rims.

Here is a pic of all the Camaro Rims, not counting the special rim packages.

No its not.

Yes the tires are summer tires, but many high performance vehicles include summer tires.

Tires are consumable items, buy a spare set of wheels, or just a spare set of tires and swap them every 6 months. Part of the game. I have for the past 2 years, no problems.

EDIT: holy old post batman I just realized I replied to someone who posted almost 3 years ago.

Yes, just a different shade of paint. All OEM 20" wheels on the Camaro are the same, just different finishes (painted or polished).

Sure, you can get the polished 20's as an option with or without the RS package - I think its around $470.
