If a more retro-rod, thicker sidewall is the look you are after, we can build these wheels in 20" as well.

This particular setup was done for the SEMA convention (which is the reason the car has all the decals on it), so this look is more showcar than track car. Keep in mind there were Camaro's on the SEMA show floor with 26" wheels on them!!

We have to thank LMR for pulling us in on this opportunity, and the cars owner David Brooks for the good old fashioned Southern Hospitality.
The 20" look great on the Z06 from your web site. I just don't have $1275 each for wheel. They're great looking though. Any wheels for us pee-ons?

The car looks fantastic! Any chance we could get some higher resolution versions of the pics for use as wallpaper?

Yes the custom wheels are pretty expensive, its just the "nature of the beast".

What price point were you looking for? Perhaps I can steer you in the right direction.

96CAMaro, I don't think the owner or builder of the car started this thread so you may not get an answer on your question regarding boost. The builder is Late Model Racecraft.

anybody running a camaro with 22"?

I'd like to use this wheel and tire combo but am concerned of performance and ride quality.
Anyone have a set of 22s on their car?

Jason, the ride will be fine with 22's as you learned today! These cars have much more advanced suspension systems than musclecars of yore.

Thanks

Derek. Thanks for all of your help with my wheel order and the great price on the Pirelli's.

My brother also confirmed the ride quality with a drive today in another Camaro with 22's.

Can't wait to get my car together. Ordered today!

order

Ordering D2Forged VS1 22" with Pirelli PZero Nero's. Basically the rims on this car...I think they are extremely classy and beautiful.

Foxman, should have my VS1's on my car at the end of next week after LMR gets done with the build. I will post some pic's. Me and "the Rich Dude" also think these wheels are extremely nice.

fastners

I'm not sure if I want to order the rims with the fastners or not. Any opinions are appreciated.

Rich Dude and I both ordered with hidden fasteners. I think it looks better but they both look good. Derrick says they look better hidden. I will let you know next week when I see them in person.

Wheels

I'm pretty sure that's what I'll do as well. I look forward to seeing the pics when you guys get your cars.

Have either of you rode in a camaro with 22s? From what I understand the ride quality is still pretty good even with 22s. My brother who is a builder rode in a camaro with stock suspension and 22s on it yesterday and said the ride quality was good.

I'm going to track my car with the factory 20s occasionally and will have the pedders Extreme street suspension upgrade. I'm a little concerned of ride quality with this suspension upgrade and these wheels but I'm pretty convinced from my research that I'll be happy with the ride.

Any of your thoughts and comments would be appreciated.

I rode in a car with 22's that LMR did with the same engine package that I am getting and it rode just fine. I am getting the full Pfadt bars and coilovers and am not too worried about the ride. I am sure a stocker will ride a little better but not much more so.

Happy Thanksgiving

Now there will be 3 of us with BAD @$$ wheels

I never get overly concerned about ride. I'm used to firm riding cars and for me looks is ALWAYS more important that my car riding like a Cadillac

Happy Turkey Day guys! I hope everyone pigged out as much as I did and enjoyed quality time with their families.

There is going to be another set in full chrome for a SLP coming out t he gates about the same time as Fox man. I think we may need to get some sort of package deal going for Camaro5 members or something!
