Wheels are not that impressive and those large caves on both sides of the lower front end area do nothing for me. Like the original concept front end better.

That's the original Bumblebee with a new front clip. The easiest way to tell the concept from a production(for me) is to look at the b-pillar(or front edge of the rear quarter glass). The concept has it angled forward inline with the top of the door opening where the production model sits more vertical, with the shape of the window resembling that of a first-gen camaro.

They look like 5 spoke wheel covers that were freshly polished to me.

I like the hood, but not to sure about the front end yet.

I think it's funny that everyone thinks the rims are ghetto/ricer/whatever...
They bear a strong resemblance to the Concept Convertibles rims!

I've never been a fan of painted rims... (and I feel real dumb for thinking they were clear) I know I know, put the crack pipe down...

But the front valance is too european for me. It's American Muscle not a ferrari. fwiw

Yeah, that spoiler is just waiting to grab a curb. If it's functional, I can live with it, just please keep it high and tight!

I'm with you 100%. Oversized wheels don't belong on muscle cars. I want the tires to have some meat on them and not looking like a stretched rubber band.

The SMS Challenger has a big lip spoiler and giant black fog light openings as well. Could this be a SMS car?

I love the front fascia on this body kit. Those rims are glorious. A flashy color + black details is always a good combo in my book. Does this color look a little more orangish than the last bumblebee or is it just me?

I could not agree more. I think the wheels look fantastic. The wheel and tire combo fill the wheel well perfectly and really set off the stance and overall presence of the car.

You effing ROCK, GM

I too am not big on these rims, but I'm finding the new front fascia and hood oddly appealing. I like the more aggressive look a lot.

i think that they were tring to imitate the photoshoped front end but forgot to make it fit the car better. it seems last minute. i would have been fine with the old front end and some new wheels. the front facia looks cookie cutter. they should have spent more time on it. something about the arangement screws me up. i like the photoshop version better

Lovin the front bumper, the painted vert style wheels add to the awesome look in my book. I still think GM may be trying to hint at accessory design ideas, and that hood looks very familiar. Just like the scoop in the original vert renderings

I for one don't care for anything other than the rims (though I would expect a super advanced alien robot to at least have calipers at some point).
