Steel Wheels

What do you think? This is the second generation Z28 wheel and the LS wheel. I just noticed that they both have BF Goodrich Radial GT on them!!!

Very similar. I like the LS wheel better though.

At the very least, it shows that GM used a classic-inspired design even for the base version of this car. GM worked hard to make it the best possible fifth generation Camaro.

And to expand upon that, they didn't just copy aspects of the original Camaros. They redesigned little details to make them even better.

In other words, they didn't pull a Challenger.

And a good thing they didn't. Just not a big fan of the challenger's looks when seen in person. Looks OK in pictures - just WAY too big in person.

I like the second gen Z28 wheel. Very nice. I'm still hoping a 5th Gen Z28 includes lightweight, reasonably sized (cough*notdubs*cough) wheels.

they have brought some of the best things from all 4 previous generations together to make this ultimate vehicle.

I like the 1st Gen rear spoiler better and am hoping that there will be an aftermarket 69 RS themed grille However, I have noticed that there are not any new cars with hide away or pop up headlights. Were they mandated to not have them?

thats up for the aftermarket to deal with or maybe another model down the road. right now GM just wants to get the car out the door. they can worry about more additions down the road. tho I know there has been significant interest in the hideaway head lights with LED surround daytime running lights as an option with a different grille. there's some photoshops of them somewhere.

I like the Z28 wheel,but the LS wheel is quite "UGLY"I'd be embarressed to drive a new camaro with those wheels.Those wheels have that "Cheap"look to them,and are very unattractive.My grandma might like em though
