I'd double check on that if I were you. If you order the bigger wheels from the factory they will NOT send you a set of 20" stock wheels and tires.

Take the stockers and then buy the 21's from the dealer. That is the only way to get both.

I think those wheels will fit the camaro perfectly, it gives old school look. The factory 21 are not going well with the camaro, its my opinion.

I actually asked the AMR rep at a show recently how big these can be made. Unfortunately, they will not fit our car he said.

I talked to the Cragar Rep for their similarly styled wheel. Same thing. The Cragar rep seemed to know the exact spacing, offset, and pattern for the Camaro, which I found interesting.

He said "Without going into specifics, two special wheels will be made for the new Camaro." I asked what they would look like and he said "check back with us in early May. We guarantee if you like our classic look, you'll love what you see."

Got it in writing. Double checked allready. Go to the build your car site. You'll see when you add your 21s it keeps the 20s as well. No worries here.

I made absolutely sure before I ordered.

Well good deal then. That is definitely a rare occurrence. Sell those 20's ASAP to get the most $$$ from them.

I doubt you can find aftermarket wheels AND tires in 21" for better than $4600. Last time I checked 21" tires were $500 each. Seems everyone keeps forgetting you are getting both for that price.

GM sells just the rims for $700 each so that places the tires at $450 each. Can you even find nice rims and good tires for these prices?

I've looked. The key word you said was NICE rims and tires. I honestly didn't find any rims that would look as good imo as the 21" polished. And the cool thing is it will be on the sticker as original equipment.

Plus I should be able to get a couple grand for the stock 20s.
