Yeah that's the trouble with ordering a car you havent exactly seen, but I think you can't go wrong with either rim finish.

I'd go midnight silver. It will match the darker red really well and then you won't have one that looks like most everyone elses. I think alot of people are getting polished wheels.

Neither wheel can make the RJT look good. And if you can't handle my sarcasm, don't PM me and be an ass. I saw you're earlier post, cracked me up. Guess not everyone has read DG's sticky - http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14547

Back on topic, the polished aluminums will be indistinguishable from chrome. Gray and dk. red look very good together, although the MS are just a slightly grayish silver, and look like clearcoated metal. Try to visualize both in your mind and pick. See...easy. Ha!

I think Midnight Silver would look sick on an RJT Camaro

I think either will look hot, but the only wheels I would pay extra for are the LS7's.

Lately I have been leaning toward the RJT 2LT/RS myself and if I end up there, my choice will be the midnight silver rims. Those two color tones blend very nicely together without too much stark contrast.

I also prefer the heritage grill. What are the particulars of the "GMPP exhaust" and "GMPP CAI" on your specs list?

I ordered the 2LT/RS in RJT with the polished aluminum/alloy 20s 'cause the RJT is a slightly dark color (see your local dealer for an idea of rjt on a Malibu). The polished alum/alloy will really pop. You'll see!

ArcAngel - I gave a whole lot of thought to this. I think that in the end wheels can really set some good contrasts and draw your eye to a car. Not that I'd want there to be a lot of chrome and stuff like that, but since there is very little of that with the Gen5 and the lines on the body will show off well in "our color", a slightly dark red car with polished alum/alloy wheels will show off whether the car is moving or standing still.
I stayed away from the polished chrome 'cause I think its getting overdone and too "pimp".

yea, me too. I really wish I could actually see the car in the RJT either with the different sets of wheels or at least see the wheels in the dealer's showroom. This is the first time I've ever ordered a car sight unseen (except by pix) and not really sure what it's going to look like. BUT I think its probably close to impossible to order a bad combination.
CAN'T WAIT!

What is "GMPP exhaust" on a V6? I thought the upgraded "cat back" exhaust was only available on the V8 models.

What is "GMPP CAI"?
