Would these wheels and tires fit on a SS? Would you have to modify the fenders? I really like the wheel stance of the SSX.

They should bolt right up, but the stance has more to do with the Pfadt coil overs than the wheels and tires.

All the vid talks about are the aesthetics. Not much beef there. How about one of the engineers to tell us what has been done to the drivetrain?

The width and offset could make them too wide to fit without further modification.

yeah could...but it fits an ss body. nothing has been done( that has been said at least) to show that these wil not fit. and they already said everything on the car will be able to be bought through gmpp months after sema. they wouldnt make a wheel that wont fit the carthat they are producing. not from gm accessories.

Apez, does the coil overs have the ability to change the ride height and the shock rebound only. If I lowered my SS 1 1/2 inches I would be having trouble driving on the streets of my home town.

The SSX doesn't look like it is more than 1 inch lower eyeballing the picture.

It say's wheel size 20 x 10 and 20 x 11 via Z/28 blanks...check what's written under suspension in the video.

I def think the SSX wheels kind of look like a better version of the 4th gen Camaro SS 10 spokes?

Who said I was after the performance?

Fat meats really make the rear-view of the car exceptionally muscular.

The Pfadt coil overs have fully adjustable ride height and damping. I don't know how GM set the ride height but you could set it however you like. You are probably pretty close on your 1 inch estimate, here is how it looks if you take it all the way down to 2.5 inch.

They do slightly resemble the 2k SS rims. They're not too bad, I like them. Nice for a stock starter but would probably get swapped out in the long run.

Sorry for the thread jack.
Yeah the oil system in the z06 doesn't use gravity, it has its own pump to keep it going when making serious turns from the g's. Not sure why it won't let me embed the video, but here's a pretty good explanation. Pretty interesting stuff.
