No. Just find some that will fit the stock wheels. A lot of people use a winter wheel and tire combo because they're easy to switch out and it keeps their stock wheels in good shape.

Zobi, I live in Michigan and I drive my Camaro year round. It is a 2LT/RS and the summer tires that came with it are absolutely worthless in the snow. I bought a set of the 18 inch base steel wheels and a set of Bridgestone Blizzaks for them. It handles very well in the snow with this set up. I would recommend a second set of wheels for 2 reasons. First, you can save a lot of wear and tear remounting tires on the same rims twice a year. If you have a second set of wheels you can just change out the wheels yourself. Second, the uplevel Camaro wheels are very wide in the back. Wide tires will kill traction in the snow, so the base steel wheels are the way to go at least for the V6. As someone mentioned, the base steel wheels may not fit the SS brakes.
