This information is very, very easy to find but I'll give you a hint. Just think, where would you find pictures of all of the GM wheels for the new Camaro?

At this time there are no stock chrome wheels for the camaro. I would be willing to bet that in the future they will. I noticed the new chrome wheels on some other GM models while at a dealership last week and have to say that I was impressed with the quality.

well sorry.. but i figure its easier and quicker to ask a direct question, rather than be forced to draw conclusions with the help of some visual pictures.

yeah i hope they will make some.
same style as the wheels they got now, but crome!
that be sickk!! chee!

yeah at the dealerships in hawaii, i seen a colorado with crome wheels.
same syle as the z71 suspension wheels, just crome. looked pretty smooth!


MAHALO CHOKE king mouse!

Don't take that bad additude to heart. There are many around here that have to feel superior than others by saying 'do a search'. Most wouldn't have the balls to treat a person like that to their face.

Welcome!

There's no guesswork, the pictures are clearly labeled in the sticky at the top of the forum. Really not a big deal, easy to get excited and ask before looking a little. I agree that at least one chromed factory wheel choice would probably be a good idea, I would have expected one over the optional 19" polished myself.

But for King Mouse, while people do sometimes get carried away with expecting any old topic to have been searched on it is lazy and rude to go to any forum and ask others a question when the work has already been nicely collected and stickied at the top of the forum. I'm not one to point this out to a newcomer in words quite so blunt and prefer to nudge in the right direction, but it's just silly to encourage such behavior.

obviously he's a lil new so better to explain where to search AND show them the answer then to just let 'em fend for themsleves, i know i wood want that, sometimes things aren't that clear when u first start

There have been many times I have learned something that I didn't think to search for because another member on this forum asked a redundant question. There is an overwhelming urge to shoot these people down on this site just for asking. Consider that it would have taken less time to answer the guys question than to be rude to him, which you were. Its just better to be nice or say nothing at all.

thanks...

tal.. dude
maybe crome is not listed there, because its a new addition.
or
maybe i cant figure out where i could find all the new gm wheels for the camaro.

good hint if i knew where to start..

maybe it would have been more polite to provide a link to another thread of this topic.
if you were not able to provide nice, helpful information, maybe it would have been better to pass this thread by.

anyways
thanks camarino and king mouse!
much mahaloz to the rest!

I've got factory chrome salad shooters on my '96 Z28 and I really like them. But I think the polished aluminum wheels on the 5th gens are pretty close to chrome. They just don't have the mirror type reflection of chrome, but they're pretty shiny. Much better than the painted wheels.

Chrome is nice and far less maintenance but there is something about polished metal.

As much as I don't like quoting myself, and even though spike already posted the renders, here's all of the factory/accessory wheels in real, color photographs.

I did not think he was being rude. Like he said he gently nudged him in a direction... That's better than flaming him for asking a redundant question.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime...

ergo Give a man an answer to his question, and he will come back and ask another question that's been asked, teach a man to do some research and he will find the answer to 99% of his questions... (I think you get my drift LOL)


BTW! I'd love to have some chrome 20's!!! I'm right there with the OP!
I have settled fo the polished 20's... which might actually work out for the better, to match a polished aluminum fuel door and polished aluminum billet grille... I always fel ti funny to have those chrome (too flashy) or to have htem polished while the wheels were the only chrome.

im pretty sure "braddah sarcastic man that lyke act smart" did neither.

i strongly believe in that quote.

do you think that a 1 year old baby cud learn how to fish by himself?
probably not, he has to be taught how.
a baby asks you how to do something, would you give them a sarcastic answer or teach them how?

i was new to this site. a "baby" to this site.. straight up new,
dont knoo where crapp is.

MUCH ALOHA TO THE NEW GUYS YEAH?
lyke ack like that? when you come hawaii as a new guy to the islands,
youll see how much aloha you get.
