This is from an email from last month to Cragar and their response is below. This is the series Cragar that I WANT!!!



The issue with the Camaro, and all the new cars, is the extreme positive
offset of the wheels. We will have something available for it for sure,
probably in an 18", 20", and 22".

Thanks

This thread is being quoted as the truth... So... How close was it?

I dont know for sure, sooo dont take this as truth....but I thought first off that the lug pattern for the corvette was totally different than the camaro..sooo Im assuming thats aftermarket, not stock corvette.....second even if 18 fit, that doesnt mean the stock 18s will...there might be a different offset to those wheels...just my thoughts ;-)

I mean seriously? Calling someone a moron because you think they're wrong. Even though you are the one that really is wrong.



Sports Fans, If you don't know who Hylton is, then learn. You just embarass yourself on the forum.

Apparently I missed out on some fun but you are exactly correct Ron - just because you can put aftermarket 18's on an RS or SS does not mean you can put LS 18's oon the RS or SS.

As for putting Corvette wheels on a Camaro, they are the same bolt pattern and I'm pretty sure GM designed them to clear big ass calipers (sarcasm). It's all about offset.

Love the sport stripes Hylton! Thanks for answering a question.... will the ZR-1 Corvette wheels(19 frt&20 Rr) fit on the new Camaro. Same bolt pattern etc. These are a zero offset wheel, love my SIM, grey 2SS by the way, great minds think alike! (LOL)

Oh, after seeing what the Impala SS emlems looked like on your car I opted for a set for mine and painted the centers red to match the ones on the frt and rear of the car! Looks great too! Thanks for the ideas!

Corvette pattern is 5x120.65mm
2010 Camaro is 5x120mm
Only you can decide if it's close enough. No definitive answer on the hubcentric size...Yet.

Sometimes we let pride get in the way and miss alot... I apologize if my 1st post (or any others) in this thread was (were) offensive, it wasn't intended that way.

Back on subject... My main concern was diameter of the rotor/caliper assy. It's still possible the drum portion, or rim of the wheel will fit over that diameter.

I'm confident these offsets are accurate...

LS, LT 18x7.5 +38mm
opt. LT 19x8 +38mm
SS front 20x8 +35mm
SS rear 20x9 +40mm

So... It looks like it MAY be possible to run the heritage wheel on the SS with spacers wide enough to make the spokes clear the outside of the caliper. (Possible front track width and tire scrub issues depending on spacer thickness, need more info. )

Yes, the 18 inch steelies may work with thick enough spacers to kick the rim out a bit. GM does offer a 20 inch winter wheel and tire package for the 2010 camaro.

Ok folks, after talking with Hylton and calling up more than half a dozen dealers in my area, here are the results:

Hylton: LS' 18s will not fit an LT w/ RS package
3 dealerships agree with Hylton
4 dealerships say the 18s will fit

I also have a friend of mine who works at the Milford testing ground check with an engineer for confirmation. (Hylton, I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just hoping they fit).

In the meantime, my 1LT w/ RS is on its way to my dealership from the factory at which point they will try fitting the stock 18s that I ordered with Pirelli Snow and Ice tires to see exactly what issues there are, if any.

Stay tuned.


UPDATE:

According to Tom Gardner of GM's Global Rear Wheel Drive Division,

"The 18" 19" and 20" wheels will all fit on a V6 Camaro, of any trim level."

There you have it folks! 18 inch steelies will fit an LT with an RS package.

Case closed.

Well I'll be the first to eat crow. Anyone have some tabasco sauce?


I still say they won't fit over the Brembos though....

Thanks JChen

I've eaten crow, it's best fried

I'm not betting on the brembo fitment issue, but they would make great sleeper wheels.... If they fit
