What size rims does the basic new SS come with

I have a V6 but when my credit is restored I plan on getting an SS. I want to get rims for my 6 that I can transfer to the SS when I buy it

Does anyone have a preference on what are some solid made rims. I'm new to the whole rim purchasing thing.

Try the Wheel/Tire and the Vendor Sections. Vendors have links to their websites and you can get a good idea from these sections of what you want.

Looks and performance. They will eventually be going on an SS

For rims?? Plenty of vendors here who offer a lot more options than they do. They have good service and most tires are decent pricing but, they wouldn't be my choice for rims unless I was a teenage boy with a Honda looking for some cheap tuners.

I had a good experience with BestWheelDeals, http://bestwheeldeals.com/, they're a vendor on here.

But you need to first decide what your price range and tastes are. If you give them a call they can help you out with that.

I suggest lighter weight rims, probably 20 inchers. TSWs are what I have.

You might want to try looking around in the "Wheels and Tires Talk.." sub-forum found here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=28

www.tirrerack.com .

Start your decision process here.

If there's an SS in your future and you're looking to move the new wheels and tires over to it . . . you might want to look into slightly wider wheels and possibly slightly wider tires than what the SS wears.


I'm sure that you can use some of the answers you come up with to decide for or against tires that Tire Rack does not carry.
