Amazing what 15 minutes can accomplish in Photoshop.

That's also what a slow Camaro looks like.

You have good taste in the wheel style though.

I love the style, but not the size, Those rims in 20" or maybe even a 18" would be awsome

Because i think 24's would leave me to small of a tire, 23's are just rite. Actually 22s would be but everyone will have 22's on this car.

A sexy car is a car that can fill up its wheel well. But to to an extreme where there is a thing strip of rubber for a tire there needs to be a ration but i think with the stock size rims and a drop it will look really nice like the chop someone did from heathers pic. I think it was 911t/a

Guys, I hate to sound like a Mod again (for the second damn time on here), but why does it always have to turn into a hate party when someone posts their idea of what looks great? Can't we all just appreciate that we love Camaros? And better yet, how boring would it be if we all get the same freaking car? Those giant wheels aren't for me, but I appreciate that ChevyBoiSS likes them.

Are you serious...23" rims on a Camaro? You're missing the point, man. Milk 1027 is absolutely right, bigger is not always better, be it exhaust tips or wheels. And especially the Camaro, that's not what it's about. It's not one of those underendowed cars thats needs the bigger adornments to make something, anything out of it. It's quite enough as it comes from the factory. Low e.t. is what it's about, not bigger anything.
But, of course, that's just my opinion. You put 23" rims on it if that's what it takes to give it the persona you think it needs.

I'm seated securely in the 21st century, thank you. I think it looks better without huge wheels.

Everyone, let's calm down and keep racial issues out of this. The post is about whether you like the car in the photoshop or not. Focus.

Dude, where the hell is a mod? This thread has gone from primarily-negative opinions on this poor kid's ideal look for his car to an e-segregation rally. Can we whip out the swiffer, please?

Sorry one of us was not here earlier.

This thread took a wrong turn...

...and those that have to bring race into this..making some unwelcome comments...you all should use some serious caution in what you say. We don't need to say anything further than that. Common sense...use it!

There will be no making fun of other people for their taste. Some like the large wheels and some don't. Want to voice your like/dislike? Go ahead....but make the point in a civil manner. We could care less how old you are...what you "say" on the boards is what thousands of people read...and I don't think reading about race, etc is necessary.

Now...let it go. And back on topic. Please....and thank you.


--------------------


23 inch wheels? IMO, too large. at least on that PS. If I saw an actual representation, ...maybe. But, I feel that still might be too large. The concept has 22's on the rear and 21's up front. Those suckers are pretty darn big.

Can't have (don't want) wheels that big. Where I live there are too many bad roads. We have 20" wheels on our Mustang, maybe 21" wheels on the Camaro, no more than 20"s for me, I just do not like the look when they are too big.

I hate the wheels that big, it makes the tires too small and looks ridiculous! But that's why they make chocolate and vanilla!

Some will have the offered 18s and 19s. Most will have the standard 20s, very few will have 21s. Then there are a very rare few in the 22nd century that will go bigger.

Well Said. That wheel STYLE is nice and would probably look nice in a 20 or maybe even 21, especailly on a yellow Camaro with black stripes.

No "Black Thing" was intended!!! Sincerely!! If I had said it looked gay, would It have been a Homophobic thing? I'll leave it at that.
