Your thoughts on Hurst Stunners for my 2SS?

Color is Anthracite (dark grey) size is 20x9 (f) and 20x11 (r).

My ss was in a fender bender and it would take 15-20 weeks to get one wheel replaced.

You can see them in this thread....http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=196301

They look cool, but they're heavy.....like heavier than stock even!!! If you're just after "looks", then get them. If you want something lighter that will actually help with your performance.....find something else.

They look cool... unless you're worried about a half a 10th in the 1/4 mile any extra weight over stock is going to mean jack squat.

These have a nice classic style look. I have sold quite a few of these. They look very nice and have an aggressive look. On the weight a couple of pounds is not going to make a big deal on a heavier high horse power muscle car.

At Speed INC. my SS was 455 hp and 426 toque on the Dyno. What sort of effect can I expect from a heavier wheel?

Will launching be difficult or will corning suffer? I'm mostly a twisty junkie and I'm wondering how much grip I might lose at speed in the corners.

I spin them from 1 to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd. The Continentals are not as sticky but with the width she holds good. Just not quite AutoX worthy.

Oh cost 6 HP on the Dyno.

But stock is heavy. So you'll run a half a tenth slower than stock. I wouldn't even be happy with stock (32 - 34 lb wheels).

My car dropped .2 - .3 tenths running 24 lb Nurburgring wheels. Haven't run my car with 21 lb, 18" Forgestars.

If you're not into racing, it doesn't matter. But if you're into racing, I woudn't put anything on your car that makes it heavier/slower. That's going in the wrong direction.

This!

If its just about looks and you like the look of the wheel then go for it. But if you're into the performance aspect of your car than these really aren't a wise choice.

Totally up to you. It all depends on what your priorities are.
