You guys that saw it in person, how was the color. Does it change shade in the light and at the angle you look at it? It looks to go from a blue to a teal color.

With so many people going for aftermarket wheels, even average consumers, does it even matter?

I didn't really notice any color change, but it is hard to tell in the artificial light that I saw it in. It looked like one of those colors that will look different in the sun light. I'm going back over to Epcot in a few days, so I'll take a better look as I walk around and see if it looks like the color changes. One strange thing with the color was that when I looked at some of the pictures I took, from one angle it looked like the fuel filler door was a slightly different color than the fender, but in person I didn't notice it at all and in other pictures I have it doesn't look like that at all...that makes me wonder if maybe the color does look a little from different angles.

Just food for thought.
Personally, I'll be getting them as a fashion statement. I really like the way they look and I'd rather have OEM wheels than aftermarket anyway.

this is the lowest trim, base model. it's the camaro equivalent to a malibu with hubcaps except these wheels were designed to be a little better than that.

Wheels tend to show your hand...Widen the steelies and put fat meat on them...Maybe even put the LS nose on an SS...A few more choice items and you have a nice sleeper!

You-"Aww what a cute LS...Let's show him how it's done"
Me- WHOOOOSH right by yer a$$
You-"WHAT THE #*$@ WAS THAT??? That ain't no LS!"

I think they look great now that I've got to see them up close.. Just my opinion..As for the dealers, I think most will be ordering cars for the showroom that don't have these wheels simply to appeal to the masses.. But who knows..

Josh @TestTrack, thanks for the update. Hopefully, the Camaro will be there for a while especially now that GM has pushed the debut to March 16th instead of Feb 16th. This will give more folks a chance to see the car in person even though it's a base model.

They ARE cheap. It's all part of the plan to make the base level model affordable to the masses. For buyers with money left over, there will be lots of wheel choices.

So the real question is what type of finance related emergency can I come up with to convince the boss to send me (the intern) to World? Hmm, this could be tough...
