the wheels look like the cts-v rims with a deeper offset. the brakes are the same as the pre-po z28s were seeing which have the cts-v 6pot front brembos. on the ssx there painted black instead of silver.
i hope they carry over the magnetic shocks too.

Love the wheels. At 20x10 front and 20x11 rear, I wouldn't change a thing. Perfect size and with a bad ass look too. Sure, I'd sport them and be happy about it.

Did anybody that saw the SSX Camaro in person see what size tires it was running on the 10" and 11" rims?

It's was a concept I had about keeping the current taillight design for RS only and this photoshop design for the non-RS model, like the '67-'68 models used to. I certainly don't think it looks better, just another distinction other than slightly tinted taillights and red SS badging on the rear view of the RS.

285/30/20 F
295/35/20 R

That's a strange setup because the rear tires are 1.4" taller than the front in diameter.

I guess this is for the "raked" look? I'm assuming this wouldn't be a good idea on a normal SS because the ABS or Traction Control would FLIP because of the different sizes?

Not sure..just my 2 cents..correct me if i'm wrong

But these wheels look SICK

those are some good looking wheels. great find. i hope some aftermarket company makes them in a 19".......any takers?

the guy in the video said these parts will be available months after sema. yet i saw a video with fitzpatrick and he said its all concept and none of it will make it to production.

its not the size of the tire that matters, its the tire and the compund. i plan on running 295 all the way around on my car for my track setup. not to mention you wont really notice 10mm in the rear anyways if it were a 305. plus you want the tires to be as close to the same size all the way around for track use and you want the tire to stretch on that wheel.
