99% of the time I prefer stock wheels to everything aftermarket.

The stock rims usually have a 'look' that fits the car better. They usually appear designed to flow with the design of the vehicle better (ok, so maybe the early 4th Gen 'salad shooters' weren't the best, but they could have been worse).

Aftermarket are, quite often, too gaudy or busy (like most of those above).

I'd like the rims from either concepts.

These aren't bad...



But I want to wait to see the actual lines of the car before I start tweaking with wheel changes and such

Those look nice, but I'm sure the stock rims will be very nice looking as well, and I might as well save some money. I have aftermarket rims on my Cobalt (part of a dealer dress-up) and while they look really nice, I'm thinking they just aren't worth the extra money. At least it is that way for what I'd rather spend my money on. Wheels aren't a big deal to me, but I know they are to some people. I suppose if I could pick one of those sets for free, I'd go with the black and silver Modas.

I wish I could find a set that I like. I have the design in mind...black and chrome. I'd just have to see'em to know "that" would be the set.

i like aftermarket wheels...i just dont like the ones that look too "busy". i like a pretty simple wheel. i want a light weight simple wheel. which is why im going with HRE. the best street/ racing wheels made.


and it has to be big. i think im goign to put 22's and 21's on the camaro. definately black.

I think some new ZR-1 wheels or C6 ZO6's will look sweet.

Yeah they would.

Plus I'm sure GM will offer different rims from the factory, some looking good. Normally all the chrome stock rims on Corvettes look good, so I assume some good ones will be offered with the Camaro.

Rims,... yeah a bit early, but I thought why not look!?!

From what I've read from other posts, there is a good chance Chevy is gonna drop the wheel size down to 17s or 18s. Even though I ain't a huge fan of huge rims, I just got watching Transformers and I'm convinced this car ought to have rims to at least fill in the space provided.

I loved the TSW rims I had on my Hyundai Sonata, so I figured some nice 20s for the Camaro would be fitting: (what ya'll think?)

THAT is one of the nicest aftermarket rims I've seen. Simple and not overdone or busy.

Very nice.

Ooo, I'd take a set. I completely agree. Very sporty, but simple and classy. NICE.

I originally wanted them for my Hyundai, but they only came in a 5-lug, whereas my Sonata was a 4-lug. Speaking of,... if any of you are in need a nice set of 4x114.3 rims (18x7), I still have them in my garage (goto the link I posted above to see some pics of 'em).

This has been a favorite of mine for a while now. Thought about putting them on my current truck... I think they would look good on the camaro.



Haven't decided which tires I like best.

Yeah I got to go with the ones posted by Kahlis in chrome.

I hope Dragon does the Navy Blue-Mettalic Camaro I requested with a Chrome horizontal grille (no squares) with the SS symbol! It would look EXCELLENT with those wheels!

Oh yeah T-Ford your Camaro looks hot!
