Rims questions

So I have a quick question. I wanted to replace my current stock RS package rims on my 2012 camaro. I know that the current rims are 20x8x245 in front and 20x9x275 rear. If I wanted to get these rims would I have to replace it with new tires? I don't understand if I need to buy new tires with new rims and how that works. Here are the rims that I want. http://bestwheeldeals.com/popular-ve...l#.UdT5RRZTuFI
can i just fit my old tires on them?

If you did 20x9 in front and 20x9 or 20x10 in the back you could use your old tires.

The company that makes those is actually on the forum so you could probably get them cheaper from them directly.

Edit here's the link to their thread. Prices are on the front page. Unless I'm mistaken, they'll be 839 for the 20x9, 20x10 painted black.

They are great wheels. I wouldntm use the dealer. I would go to a normal tire shop like Discount Tire. You could probably expect to pay $40-60 to have them switched.


Check out this thread. You can get a whole set for as low as $799.

You could probably get it repaired cheaper than the dealers quote but if you like the ZL1 reproduction wheels, you can't beat them for the price.
