Z06 Wheels

Any reason Z06 wheels wouldn't fit the new Camaro? The Z06 has even larger diamteter rotors than the Camaro yet can fit 18" wheels on front and 19" on rear.

the real question.. would that even look good? The corvettes are kinda frail looking in my opinion, the camaro screams bold and mean. Highly objective point, obviously.

The bolt pattern is close but not exactly the same - Camaro 5x120, Corvette 5x120.65 (4.75").

I've still been waiting on that answer for a while.

I really want black painted ZR1 wheels.

and I don't think there's anything wrong with having Corvette wheels on a Camaro.
The two cars have always shared parts throughout history.
Heck I have hubcaps from a '74 Corvette on my car. But not alot of people would be able to notice unless they were real Camaro/Corvette buffs.
I guess it's just a matter of taste.

Where'd that info come from? J/W..I figured the new camaro would be the same as vettes, GM would be stupid to change the bolt pattern. Every 4th gen in the damn country has some sort of vette wheel on it, including some of my cars.

Only thing i'm afraid of is an 18 looking too small. Car would definately have to be lowered.

At least GM gave us a good looking factory wheel from the get go this time

There are more reasons than just making wheels incompatible.
