hmm....well that would all depend on if the bolt pattern is the same. Im not sure what the bolt pattern is on a 1976 camaro. Google it

You might need 1" wheel spacer adapters to bring them out to the edge of the fenders and at the same time if the bolt pattern differs that can be corrected too.

cool

So then as long as bolt pattern matches it should be an easy swap ? and reason Im a bit concerned is because the front wheels will also be 20" and im afraid that it will be rubbing on the fender

All you may need to do is get lower profile tires in the front.

?

All wheels used on the Second Generation Camaro are 5 x 4 3/4 bolt pattern, 2.783 center hole and for the 2010 its 5 x 120 ( which i believe is 4 3/4 also i could be wrong, not sure if someone can verify this )

2 front: 20x8, 35mm offset, 5 7/8 backspace.
2 rear: 20x9, 40mm offset, 6 5/8 backspace

Not sure what the 1976 specs are, ive looked online but cant seem to find any info besides they are 14x7

Well I can't say for certain, but I dont think they will fit. I dont think the lug size or pattern would be the problem, but the size would be. I am almost certain you would rub both front and back if you are able to get them on. I know you have the wheels but here is a 15"-17" compared to the 20" 2010 SS wheel. They are a LOT bigger! Not to say you couldn't do it with some work, but as for a simple swap, I think not. Just my 2cents

Oh and here is a wheel/tire fitment chart for 2nd gen camaros, but it only goes up to 18" wheels. But just in case you want to look it over- http://en.chevroletcamaro.cz/archive...ent-chart.aspx

Hope that can help you out a bit! P.S.- I have a '74 and thought of that same thing!! I think it would be sweet if you can find a way to make it work!!

72 going with 18x8,18x9s

biggest I have found to fit under the second gen is a 18x8 any other wheel will surely rub or hit the sway bar. the new 2010 camaro wheels look good but you would have to do a lot to get them to turn.
heres a link cool tire and wheel comparer you can play with different sizes and stuff. http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp
