4th & 5th Gen Camaro's

Got the '98 Z/28 a new set of wheels/tires this week and I really love how it changed the look of the car. I'm all done now with the cosmetics and it really gets a lot of attention when we are out and about with it

I like the SLP bowtie grill on the '98.

Is there a reason why you went a bit small on the tires?

I most likely will be doing a BMR lowering kit so I wanted to make sure I didn't go too big and get wheel rub.

I dunno what sound system you have in your 98....but I have the factory Monsoon 8 speaker in mine and it is quantum leaps better than the 5G BA one (I have one of those too). Its sounds so good Im afraid to change out the head unit to a touch screen nav unit.

On the suspension.....I went with the QA1 coilovers.....much easier to tune and adjust the ride height.....

Many of the Z28s came with 273 gears (booo).......373s wake that car up!


Very clean car though. Red always looks good.

I got jipped on the sound system. It just has the basic 6 speaker non- monsoon but it sounds ok for now. I replaced all the speakers since the originals were old and distorted sounding. I plan on looking at options after I start next on the suspension and will certainly change out the gears for it also has the 2.73's. overall though it runs strong and rides nice so I really can't complain

Those are a couple of good looking cars!

When you are ready for those BMR lowering springs let us know and we will make sure you get taken care of.

Did you make some photo's of the the front wheel with the 245/45/ZR17 tire?
i would very thankfull, if you could post them, thanks

I want to buy some TT-M rims with new tires, but the 275/40/ZR17 tire is not common in Europe, but of the size 245/45/ZR17 i can buy plenty
So i would like to see if this tire (245/45/ZR17) nicely fits on a 17x9" rim.
