2010 heritage wheels wanted

Anyone that ordered a 2010 LS Camaro with the Heritage wheels and plans to ditch them for custom aftermarkets, let me know. I am interested in purchasing them to put snow tires on for next winter. Preferably in Michigan, but we make a few trips a year to Cincinatti, Ohio. We could arrange pick up in that case.

If you are getting an SS or RS, those LS wheels won't fit your car because you'll have brake caliper clearance issues.

I forgot to mention, it is a 2LT, so 18" wheels will fit. I want those wheels since it will be cheaper to get 18" snow tires rather than 19". Also figured that people would be more likely to ditch the Heritage wheels in favor of aftermarket units.

Thanks for the heads-up, though.

No problem. I think those Heritage wheels will look really nice when someone polishes up the trim rings to a high shine.

More misinformation I see. Research before giving advice. LS, LT come with same size brakes. SS are bigger. RS is just a package.

Time to educate a few -

When you order an RS, you get the 19 inch wheels. This actually triggers the SS hubs in the rear and you end up with a 4.5 link rear end vs the 4 link in the LT and the 5 link in the SS. Spoke to Al Oppenheimer to great length about the rear suspension unit. I suggest some poeple do their own research before calling people names or assuming someone is speculating. Good day.

When you order an RS, you get 20" wheels, not 19" wheels. However, I'm sure the rest of your info is correct.

Thanks Rolnslo. I remembered the RS got the larger rims but I forgot that they were the same size as the SS.
