BIG LIP, SMALL LIP, or NO LIP which do you like best?

Guys, Curious to know what people here think looks best on the 2010 Camaro.

Big Lip is around 4 inches
Small Lip is around 2 inches
No Lip is well, no lip...lol

Here is a 4 inch by COR



Here is Tonys car it looks like a 3.5 inch lip, it maybe a 4 inch



This is another forum members car with a 5 inch rear lip



These are CCWs with a 2.5-3 inch lip



Another CCW looks to be a 2.5-3 inch lip



Another CCW



Here is a 2 inch lip give or take from VIP





Pedders car, it appears to be a 3 inch lip



No lip SLP


Sema car little lip



Thanks
Jon

depends on the wheel. But I tend to like the small lip better.

I am not sure the huge lips I have been seeing on Camaros does not thrill me as much as it does on my Corvette.

Photoshops are nice but real photos always so the truer representation IMO.

Jon -

I completely agree with Milk. The rims on that yellow car just blow me away. Especially the second set. Wow !!

Don't know yet what BS/Offset I will need, but the car is being mini-tubbed as we speak and we are going to put a 345/45Z18 on the back for the strip. I guess the 18's are the smallest diameter that will clear the rear Brembos. (Does that agree with what you have heard?) I spoke with the tire manufacturer and they said the optimal rim for the particular tire is 13", but I may stick with a 12". I am sure you have data on what fronts will fit. It will have Pfadt coil overs up front if that changes any clearances. PM me if you don't want to post a quote here. I am interested. What is the lead time to get a set? Only one sticky question - are they SFI approved or do you have some reasonable strength/stress test data.

Sorry to pound you with so many questions, but I have to get the right set the first time.

Hey one other thought - since you are in Florida, maybe I could drive down some time and check out some.

Thanks Jon.
-Bruce

I have always had big lip wheels on my 4th gens (CCW's or I-Forged), but I'm just not feeling it on the 5th gen. Those Vip's look great imo. I'm thinking 2" or no lip.

I like the CCW's and the SEMA car. I don't like it when they have a deep dish kinda lip.

I believe the term is "deep dish"...

The deeper the better imo.

No, but you can call John at CCW. The cost is right around 2700 for the set of 4. One piece forged.

Big lip, we will have 5-8 big lip wheels ready for the 2010 Camaros in the next few weeks. If you guys want a big dish wheel that will fit big breaks we have the perfect line of wheels for you.

We can do the wheels in any finish and almost any size you can think of.

Here is one we just did.

We can get you in to 3 piece 20-inch or 22-inch for just a little more than this. For the money I would buy three piece over one piece all day long they ride much better.

I would beg to differ on this one. One piece are nice wheels. Stronger lips and a lot of time lighter. CCWs have always been very smooth up to 160mph.

3 Piece has the advantage if you do bend/scratch a lip you can tear down the wheel and send part of it in.

Only set of big lips I Really care for are Angelina Jolies lips! And those are sweet! Oh we are talking about another set of lips my bad! Lol! Honestly I think it all depends on the wheels. Me personaly I would go with small lips to no lips but that's just my personal opinion. Just about any set of lips will look sweet on these cars! But there are a select few that I have seen that just look hideous! What is bad is just think of how ugly they really have to be if they look bad on a Camaro!! Because the post of 1st Camaro crime were someone stole dudes wheels and left the camaro sitting on ground hell the Camaro still looked sick with no wheels! I guess you all can tell I really love this car!!
