I like 'em.

Better if the center caps were just round buttons without the star burst effect.

I am not big on 22" wheels for the camaro. Those look like the style of old Shelby cobra and Gt40 wheels.

That being said.... I like them.

for me...
I agree with the 2nd post though...i think it would look even better without the star in the middle...or if it was same color.

The style of them?...Yes, I love them.

The size of them?...No, I don't like large wheels because the tires are way too expensive and not as long lasting or reliable as smaller ones.

When I bought my 1LT, I didn't want the RS package on purpose because it had 20" wheels, I got it with 18" wheels instead.

Just my opinion about not liking large wheels (because of the tires you have to use), but the wheels themselves are great...good luck with them.

I love those wheels. They were on a flat grey Camaro at SEMA. I think the size is perfect, but a normal center cap would look better imo.

22's are just ridiculously too big.
Needs 18's or absolutely no larger than 20's.
But the design is okay and the deep dish is okay.
Even the spinner would look good if it were smaller and had three points...or no points at all.
