I love your car, been following all your threads. I'm pretty bummed out because I want the 18" Forgestars for my car but I just bought brand new Pirellis for my stock 20's. I don't want to wait till I need to purchase new tires but I don't see how I could make this happen, because I need the money at least from my wheels to pay for the tires. How much should I be able to get for a set of 4 Stock SS polished wheels with new Pirellis (only 800 miles on them) with sensors included? Thanks I wonder what my options are?

With new tires and perfect condition wheels you should be able to get $1,000-$1,200.
I think I have $2,100 total in my street set up. So you only really need to save up about $900-$1,100.


Some pics I took today.

Holy smokes 335's. I'd love to have those on a 10.5" or 11" rim x 20. Do you think that would fit? Not as skilled as you with the car stuff, but just know I want to get as much rubber on the road as possible. How wide you think can go on the front? I was thinking 285 - 295 x 20".
I'd be using on pair for street, road course track occassion drag just to hang out, no real competing.
Car looks awesome bro'.

First off, awesome job on your car! It looks great! Also, I was wondering if you still had contact info for the XSpower headers. Nvm, found it under GM Parts, not Camaro like all other cars.

After reading your build think I am going to go with the 18" Forgestars. I like more of a tire selection with the 18's versus 19's. Keep up the good work.

4/8/12 So I sold my 18x8.5/18x11 Forgestar F14s today :( . I ordered the EXACT same wheels, except these will be 18x10 all the way around. I had bought the 18x8.5 w/245/45 front because I wanted the lightest wheel/tire for drag racing. I later bought some 18x4 skinnies for the track so I didn't need to have the light/narrow fronts anymore. I wanted the car to handle a whole lot better so I ordered two 18x10s and wanted to narrow the 18x8.5s to run as skinnies so I would have two complete sets of Forgestar F14s (one street and one track). With money being tight lately I decided that if I could sell my 18x8.5 fronts I would just keep my 18x4 skinnies and save all the $$$ I would spend on narrowing. If I could sell my fronts AND rears I would order two more 18x10 and run the same wheels/tires all the way around so I could have a squared set up and rotate the tires to any corner of the car.

I found a buyer pretty quick for my complete set up So know I am waiting on my new wheels. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=213945

4/16/12 WOO HOO! got my new tires! today. Four 285/40 18 Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires for only $79 each!!!!!

Great thread, very useful.

Do you know the belt number for the ASP pulley or did it come with the pulley?

Main Belt: Gates K060827 or 82.7" Equivalent
Accessory Belt: Gates K040353 or 35.3" Equivalent
They don't have to be these EXACT sizes, if you know how to read belt sizes you can just pick one very close to this size. I think I couldn't find these sizes and just bought the sizes right under them. I would rather have a tight belt that will stretch a bit over time than an already loose belt that will stretch even more.
