Need wheel ideas and tire sizes!!!

I recently just sold my car and I am looking for a white camaro. Once I get it, I only have a about a month and I need to have it completely customized, so I want to know what rims to get and what size tires I need to make it look the best.

I have looked around a little bit and I am looking at 22s or 24s. I want to lower it too an inch or two. What springs are best for lowering? What size tires and rims will fit so there are not rubbing issues??

Another thing I am looking at getting is the halo headlights. Those make the car look so much better in my opinion!!

POST PLENTY OF PICTURES Gotta get plenty of ideas what works best!!! Thanks guys!!
Once I get it I will post pictures for sure!

RS package comes from the factory with Halos.

24's + Lowering will be too big IMO (unless you are looking for a super donked out look).

Personally, I wouldnt go past 20's or 21's, but I can see how certain rims could still look good in 22's. Once you get that big it starts making the brakes look tiny and leaves a lot of dead space, just my 2 cents.

Tons of rims look great on these cars, look through the wheel and tire section of the forum, or the photos section.

Need at least 9" wide in the back and front to look aggressive. A lot of people go 9" square. Rears look great in 10-10.5"

My opinion, do not go over 20" wheels.

I think 20s are the way to go, better performance efficiency compared to 22"-24". One piece machined Foose wheels on a 2010 2SS;

When I was looking to buy mine, the dealer was trying to sell me one with 24's (see pic) ...Way too big IMO. Not to mention, close tire inspection showed rubbing from the tire hitting the fender. The ones on the car I ended up getting are the GM 21's with the red line.

Personally 22" is the biggest I would go. I'm a huge fan of 22" F14's

I went with 20" TSW Nurburgrings. And I'm lowered on PFADT springs.
