Talking Photos: Rushforth 22" Wheels on 2010 SS

Please do not ask pricing on this thread! See the marketplace wheels forum for pricing! Thanks

Those of you in the pro-touring and classic musclecar scene have probably heard of Jason Rushforth. He is a well-known automotive artist/designer and has a popular line of forged wheels.

Since I am a Rushforth Wheels dealer, Jason asked what could be done to get his brand in front of the 5th Gen fans. So, I suggested he build me a set of wheels to put on my car to snap photos of. Hehe.

Well, here is the result! Here are the details:

Rushforth Wheels - model "Rated X"
2-piece construction
Brushed/clearcoat centers with polished lip
22x8.5 fronts with 255/35-22
22x10 rears with 285/30-22
Nitto INVO tires
Pfadt lowering springs

Those look great, but are you sure those are only 20's?


Edit: NM, you must have changed it while I was typing that. Lol

They look cool. Was speaking to Jason back and forth I just wanted to see some of his designs on the Camaro. The Rated X is hot but it looks too much like my Hartge rims on my BMW M5. I like his Concepts alot.

I would also jump the rear offset out a touch maybe 3-5mm but maybe its the 10" width giving it the visual affect

55Designs, I wanted a 295 or 305 rear tire, but couldn't really find any 22s with the proper diameter. Had the tires been wider, it would have filled that offset visually. Good eye. 22-inch tire selection kinda sucks for our diameter requirements, unless you go with a wider wheel and 315 tire for the Pirelli PZero Nero.

this might be a dump question but does lower springs void your warranty?

Depends on what you want to have covered under warranty. Magnusson-Moss act protects consumers in terms of warranty issues, the dealer has to prove that your modification caused the failure of the item. So, if your radio breaks, the coil springs have no relation to it.

On your color I like the gunmetal look. All brushed makes those look BIG. Gunmetal tones it down a little (like your other wheels).

I put the INVO tires on every performance car I can. Very good all-around tire. I have them on the Z06 and the Viper. Would have put them on the Camaro, but they don't have the right 22" sizes available.
