Has anyone gone with aftermarket 18s?

I have an LS with steelies and am looking at winter tires for those.

Looking at some aftermarket wheels and I really like the look of my steel LS wheels (size wise) and wanted to see pics of 18s if anyone had put any on.

Anyone go with aftermarket 18's? I think a beefy bit of rubber has a cool oldschool look on the car. Any pics? I have a CGM and had my eye on these two but its hard to get an idea how they will really look:

Konig Airstrike 18"


Moda EB1 w/ Anthracite Accent

Awesome, thank you. So those are 18's on there? They look great thats what I'm looking for. I kinda like a chunkier 5 spoke but those actually look really great on there.

If yours are 18s on there that kinda puts away any worries I had of them looking too small. Nice you have the CGM too, that helps.

I also stayed with 18's. Still hoping to see Torq Thrusts in an 18 for the 5th gen Camaro...

I'm not CGM, and these photos aren't great, but these are 18" and I have gotten a lot of compliments on them, and I haven't gotten my grand sport stripes put on yet either. Forgestar F14's, 8.5" wide so I am still using the stock tire, though when I replace them I'll go to a 255/55R18 where there is plenty of selection. Got them from Nineball.

The color of the rim you select can make a huge difference in how "big" or "small" it looks on the car, but I've found that most all F14's look amazing, regardless of size. Enjoy.

Yup mine are 18's as well and they grown on me. I wanted 20's but the cost of tires are to much for me to handle.

They do Torq Thrusts in 18" in Black or the Grey but not polished yet. Thinking of the black ones for mine.

Yea, got a qoute about 10 days ago. Really want Cragar S/S's but they seem to be dragging their feet.
Since I tinted the windows, I think the black Torq Thrusts will look really good on it.
