Yeah the Stillen may not fit the best, but it's still worth it in my opinion. However, everyone is different. Just bring it to a great painter to make sure it's prepped right and to lay the paint and clear coat on thick. Also, tell the body shop to use bigger and better screws and stronger screws, as well as more of them to keep the Splitter on there for good. The stock ones just aren't good enough in my opinion.

Hopefully he'll be able to give you some great pricing. If not, I found a place that sells the 20x9, and 20x10.5 (deep concave) on'es custom painted for $2000 including all fees and shipping. Now, the one's that weren't custom painted were much less.

Looks AWESOME!!! Congrats. You're going to have even more of a hard time not staring at your Camaro every time you lock it and walk away. Great color!

That's true Camaro love at its best! It's amazing how a set of rims completely transforms a car. Also, now your car has less rotational mass. Cheers to better braking, acceleration, and autocrossing!!
