So V-6 1LT with RS pkg comes with 20" Rims?

Maybe I should know this by now, but I thought the V-6 1LT with RS option still had the 18" rims, and you had to go to 2LT just to get 19" Rims? But just went on the (just updated) GM Camaro site, and it showed you get 20" rims (Midnight Silver) with RS option. Is this just an error on new GM site, or is this true? Thanks for any info!

(Previously, I thought 20" rims were just available on V-8 models)

Thanks for the scoop!

My only other question to anyone is how rim size might affect ride-quality. I have a bad back, and one reason (besides the cost) the V-6 seems a better fit, is a softer suspension, and in non-RS form has more tire, less rim. Any noticable difference going from 18/55's to 20/50's?

Noticable difference...yes, but I doubt you'll have to worry about your back because of it. There's still a good amount of meat on those 20's and with IRS it's going to be a smooth ride.

Thanks for the insight! The 20's will definitely look better too. That alone is worth popping a few extra Advil at end of the day
