Good color combo on the green! Keeps a somewhat retro theme going.

HRE's are custom built to order, you have to call or email them to specify sizes, offsets, finishes, etc.. Bring at least $6K for the lowest priced forged set. :)

Tom, I've not seen or installed any Ride-Techs before. Sorry, not much help on that brand. The Pfadt and KW brands had the worst tire clearance, so hopefully the Ride-Techs aren't any worse.

Those tire widths and wheel widths you gave us mean nothing without knowing the offset or backspacing. The 315 tire tucks even on slammed cars, with the proper wheel offset. I've even had customers...

That combo will work fine for driving around and straight-line stuff. Out on a road course, however, the narrow front tires will educate you quickly about understeer and mowing grass. ;)

This is correct. But, I'd typically spec a less aggressive front offset than the factory ZL1/1LE wheels, to tuck the tire a little more. You likely don't have a choice with repro wheels, though.

I wouldn't have a problem patching it there. That tire looks pretty worn for only 3500 miles. You must be a "spirited" driver ;)

There are companies that specialize in wheel repair. If you can't find one local, you might have to ship it to one. Wheels America in Houston does a good job. www.fixrim.com

Wheel guy here. Rims are just the outer lip, not the entire wheel.

Rims = Hoops

Wheels is the correct technical term.

This is correct. Only use GM sensors on the Camaro, these cars have really picky TPMS systems compared to most other cars we work on.

GM Part Number 20922900

Good for 2010-14 Camaros.

You'll be fine with that offset. Wheels tuck in more on the Camaro, as the suspension goes upward. Looks funny when the suspension is hanging like that.
