CGM lowered and sleek

Just lowered my CGM 2SS and chromed the wheels. Has Borla Stingers on it from the cat-back. 5% window tint all around. I used pedders Xa and lowered it as low as possible, but still rides smooth. It believe it lowered about 2.75 maybe 3 inches all around. I wanted a sleek ride without overdoing it with aftermarket mods. The car just looks beautiful. Maybe later, i can shoot a picture of my 2007 corvettes that are also lowered....they're just as nice. Thanks for all the help from the members in the forum. Enjoy the pictures....

Awesome!

If it were mine, it would need wider rear tires.

Tried, but the tires rubbed. Need more clearance. With these wheels i can put the kids in the back and still ride nice and low without rubbing

It looks cool but mine will stand tall like a Camaro should. It is know for its poise and stance.

No rubbing problems whatsoever with the stock wheels and tires. Also with the pedders, the car can take corners really well. I've been driving lowered cars since i was 16. Im now 31, so i've gotten used to driving them. My vette has a 2" clearance in the front and i don't have any difficulties. Hey....we all have our own styles.

Another Beautiful CGM Camaro... but for me I just never understood the lowering thing for looks...

Unless its Pedders mods for road course tracks then I'm all for it...

Nice car either way... I'm probably just too old school...

That looks much better than stock height. Probably still has a lot of ground clearance underneath, since these cars sit so high to begin with.

The car looks good lowered!

Just IMO, you should have not gone 3'' in the back, should have gone with 2'' for a better looking stance, the rear looks a bit to low.

Why not just order the car with the optional polished wheels? I would not trust the durability of the aftermarket chromed finish.

Absolutely beautiful, I love it!

I've been thinking about doing similar with mine.

If you dont mind my asking, what did the chrome cost you? Any idea how much weight it added?

Cost about 700 to chrome the wheels. I liked the stock wheels and did not want to get anything aftermarket for the wheels. I've got this guy who will do a chrome replacement for your old wheels and the chrome has a lot of durability. I've got another vehicle that has 33,000 miles on the chrome wheels and it still looks new. No burns no scuffs.
