Which Aftermarket Perfomance Wheels on Camaro?

After going through about 1000 rims I decided to go with the rims with less "bling". I figured wheel that look too flashy would take away from the beauty of the car. Im down to these three rims which two are performance rims and I decided to leave it up to you guys to see which one is best. I like them all just as much so which ever one wins your vote would be my choice.

PS. sorry for the poor Photoshop job. Their suppose to be 20"s but i think I made them a bit too big.

In this order:
-Konig Unknown 20"
-MSR style 087 20"
-Rodtana 5ROC 20"

My thoughts

Out of the three photos you posted I choose the 2nd picture. For myself I ordered the Spec 5ive from 360forged.com for my Black 1SS/RS w/GFX here is a rendering. Brushed tinted center, black lip and silver pinstripe. I got a great deal because i am letting them put the car in all of their marketing material etc.(i will have more meat on the tire than in the photo)

I like the third one - it looks more "muscular".

I like all of these, but I think the Konig's look best.

None. They all look alright, but I think a deep dish wheel always looks better on a Camaro, even more so with the body lines of the 5th gen.

Good photoshop. I like that look.

To the OP: If budget is a concern, I'm pretty sure the Rodtanas are significantly more expensive than either MSR or Konig. If you hit a pothole, expect to be replacing those Konigs. Also, are you sure either Konig or MSR has the right bolt spacing and offset for the Camaro? I think the Rodtanas look good, but are you willing to consider a higher quality forged wheel like 360Forged, Kinesis, CCW, or HRE?

THanks for all your posts and opinions....I agree that mabye i should consider some stronger, more economical, muscular looking rims (deepdish mabye). Afterall it is a camaro and not an acura or honda lol...i think that those rims may be a little too tuner for a muscle car like a camaro.

great pic 1320 junkie, best pic so far I think.
Those will be tough to keep clean, just hope you fingers fit between the spokes.
The area around the screws will be tough too.
The issue I have with the modulars is any kid with an allen wrench can ruin your day, and your bank account

naw, I'm just jealous because I can't afford them

Photochop the CCW SP500's for us, please?

#3 is the nicest out of the 3 posted. Here is another link to some wheels. I have used them and would recommend (If that is cool with the Mods!) www.ccwheel.com/ . They have some clean looking wheels (polished, brushed, anodized, painted) and light with perfomance in mind! Just to open your options if interested!

I agree I love the "Deep Dish" look. I called it a "Shelf" in an earlier post LOL.

I wouldn't call any of those "performance" wheels. Performance generally implies lightweight and forged.
