Tell me what you think

My guy at 360forged came up with this design for my rims. Brushed center, Black Lip and silver pin stripe. 21's up front 22's in the rear. I kind of like them...of course i would have a little more rubber on the tires.

Agreed, some more meat is needed on those tires. Looking at this picture is making me change my mind about the rally stripes now to be honest. It's go time for me in the morning, I found a local dealer who has an allocation for 11 and he has 6 left so i am taking the plunge in the morning. I have no clue as to how long I will have to wait for delivery but I am excited now!!

Pretty cool. Only thing is....The only way you get them lips on the rims is with the V-6. The SS brembos will not take them rims unless you modified your wheel wells. The options for wheels will be narrow and specific to get em over the brembos. Just a thought!

Rolling the inside of the fenders is the plan.

Not sure rolling will do it. Think you would have to flare them. GL though and if you can get them things on there, please post because they are sick and I would definately like to have some rims like that on my Camaro!

He has plenty of diameter, what part wouldn't fit over the calipers??

And I'm pretty sure the fender lip is already rolled from the factory. There's several threads on here that state that. The rear lips are rolled from the factory, and the front ones are bent up at an angle.

As for the wheels, NIIIICE style. Way too big for my tastes, but the style is flippin' sweet! Will definitely turn heads.

Offset, and if you don't believe me, wait and see then. I have dealt with brembo set-ups several times, if you can get a lip over 1.5 inches on the 9 wide(the rears on his ps look like they could be 3 maybe 4'in lips) I would be very surprised.
Look at the factory wheel with no lip, then add lip to that, where do you think the wheel will go? Out! And you will have to stagger lip sizes also(which I see he did, the front are 8' in and there is no way you will get over 1.5 inch lip on it without flaring fender. But don't take my word for it just wait and see.

Advise to all also, don't order wheels without seeing that they fit on your set-up. Going just by Offset may get you in trouble. One rim with 38mm offset may fit and another with 38mm offset may not(just an example). Wheels are not easy when you have big brakes.

Rear wheel is a 4.5 inch lip. They know what they are doing and I have trusted them with multiple vehicles. The rims are custom made per application. I dont want to get on here and start singing praises for them as they are not a site vendor. But if you pm me I will send you their info or you can just go to the website call and get all the answers you need. the website is www.360forged.com ***mods if it is out of place by me posting the website please remove it***

Thanks bro! Not trying to be negative, I just have experienced! I know that many things are possible, and I have fit 19x9.5 with 1.5 inch lips on a Evo, and I prolly had an 1/8 of an inch clearance over the callibers. These were custom made wheels and it was very tight. Rolled fenders also. No way you find these in regular market, had to go custom. Exactly what you are doing. If a 4.5 inch lip on the rears work, wow. Anyways, thanks, and again them are very sharp. Did you do the photoshop or them? GL to ya, mine will be painted black and on down the road I will get some customs probably! I have my own source (CCW) that I too have used for several vehicles. Here is a couple pics of my Evo I had done. Thanks again!
