When I replace my tires, I will order "Red" ones to see if they're a better match.

Front (Driver's side):


Rear (Driver's side):

Both of these look great! Glad I could help!!

And thats the beauty of them costing like $9, if you dont like them or they get damaged, buy another set

I recently painted my calipers too

Already have some but I think this is better... and wider.

Plus, I got the reflective red so it should be cool at night.

do any of you guys know if the stripes will work with the 10 spoke zl1 rims because it has the lip that is connected to every two spokes

Id say buy a set and try. I think it will, you just have to be careful and work the vinyl into the hump each time you get to it.


You actually have like three options for places to put them, you can go on the inside face that has "Camaro" wrriten on it too. You could also run them on the inside of the rim that runs at a 90 degree angle to the "camaro" surface, just behind the spokes.

If you dont understand what im talking about, i can try to elaborate, hard to type what I mean

What do you think about doing this on Plasti-dipped rims? I want to plasti-dip mine but would like some orange so was thinking about doing plasti-dip then using this to do the orange pinstripe and the bowtie.

Ive seen it done a few times, it would look great!!!

The first car I saw this on had plasti dipped black factory rims with a red pinstripe.

I bought these a while ago and haven't put them on. I just got new tires, so I guess the time is now! Thanks for the DIY tips.

It can, depending on the curbrash, but you could sand the curb rash smooth, and the vinyl will go right over it. If you are handy enough, you could use a little bondo to fill in gouges. too

Go down a few posts on this build thread. Post 3 has the pics that made me do mine. Plasti dipped.

Do it! After the tires are mounted, as the mounting thing can scrape the edge and knock the strip off.
