well.....you can't really do much until you know what offset you need. The bolt circle is 5x120mm and the wheel sizes are shown in the specs. As fars as I know, the offset hasn't been released yet, unless I missed that post.

Lug pattern is 5x120. Not sure of the offset yet - also depends on if you want to push the wheels out a bit or not.

One thing to remember is to keep your overall tire diameter the same as stock - between 28.61" and 28.68".

how likely do you think it would be to take the tires off the heritage steel and put them on some 18's with similar size? (18x7, 18x7.5)

if the wheels are the same size, the tires will fit

Hey everyone (we know the bolt pattern/widths/diameters)... It's hard to understand with people now taking delivery of their cars why someone can't measure and list all the current offsets for the various production wheels. By knowing what the offsets are for the production wheels, it is very easy to recalc for 21's and 22's and then everyone can go shopping.

A little help ? Scotty ? Someone? ............... thank you very much.

I agreed. I can't shop for wheels unless I know what the proper offsets are...
The offset is stamped on the inside of the rim. I'll appreciate it If someone can post this info for us.

What I noticed about the LS rim is that it appears to not have the extreme positive offset as the larger rims. It has a ring that attaches to the rim but, of course, that is a photo that we all have seen and until someone can verify what it is, we will not know. Really, with people from the plant on here, I don't understand why it hasn't been done yet.

im sorry guys i havent seen where 5x120 was confirmed as the Stock bolt pattern? are we just making an educated assumption since the G8 and all newer RWD GM cars have been 5x120 that the camaro is the same?

Here's a question, when buying aftermarket rims, what needs to be done to accomodate the tire pressure monitoring system in the driver information center (DIC)?
