Post Best rims/tires cost+performance

Alright so I recently purchased a camaro with the 21 inch rims on it and all everyone is telling me is how much the tires are going to cost to replace so I am looking for new oem rims to get. I want them to be oem becuase I have the transformers edition and want to replace the center caps with the transformers emblem. So I am looking for rims that will be the relatively cheapest to replace so I don't have to worry about smoking the tires and so I can get the most out of my car. How much are you spending on your tire replacements?

just go down to 20s and youll be just fine. many MANY tire options in the 20 inch range from expensive performance tires down to bargain tires.
I did the same thing but ditched OEM for lighter wheels that looked the same as the 21inch Dusk rims.

I gave up my cool color matched bowtie center caps I do miss them though.

I have some SLP 20" wheels for sale in the classifieds with tires, and your transformers center caps would be a perfect fit.

These would look great on your car, they are very affordable, you can reuse your centercaps and you would have the same size all the way around so you can rotate.

I would a set of these for $640 shipped and just rock some 275/40 20 all the way around.

Or

these 20x9 for $665 shipped. Also rock some 275/40 20s all around.
