Nickey, Can you shed some light on this or verify this info for us? Is their Model Number for the Chrome, Series AR605? Anthasite AR105's and the Black AR105's as well? If not, what is it? And the can you / will you give us the actual OFFSET of each of the wheels you are selling? I see on their website there is the Series AR605, Chrome, 20 x 8.5, 5 x 120 is P/n AR605M28512SSC and the 20 x 10 is AR605M2112SSC are these the same wheels ?

Will AR be producing the 2 piece for the 5th Gen?

American Racing makes three different lines of large sized Torque-Thrust style wheels.

Torque-Thrust "M" (shown above)
Torque-Thrust II (2-piece)
Torque-Thrust II Classic (2-piece with gray centers)

As far as I know, the TTII wheels in 20" should fit no problem. They are quite a bit more expensive than the TTM wheels though, and require them to be custom ordered. I had a set made for one of my 69 Camaros a few years ago. I'm not a dealer for AR, but maybe Nickey can order them for you.

My car with 18" TTII Classics on it. 2-piece construction.

Those wheels are a great choice. They look phenomenal on the Camaro and so many other muscle cars.

Traditional GM lug pattern is 5 x 4.75", which translates to 5 x 120.65 mm. 2010 Camaro is 5 x 120 mm.

People have been putting 5 x 120 mm lug pattern wheels on 5 x 4.75" cars (and vice-versa) for over 12 years now, based on my own recollection. When you think about it 0.65 mm divided by two (to cover a radius) is only 0.325 mm off on a lug circle. Pull out a ruler and take a look at how minuscule 1/3 of one mm is. Most of the times, wheel lug studs and the drilled holes on wheels add up to more tolerance than that. The conical lug nuts will still center up the wheel just fine, even more if you find wheels that are hub-centric.

I try not to recommend doing it, just for "professional" reasons, but does it work? Yes. It works just fine, and I've yet to see any failures from doing so. A wheel with a 5 x 4.75" lug pattern will bolt right onto the 2010 Camaro.

does "per set" mean 2 rims or 4? i know that's a dumb question, just trying to make sure. also can we order just 8.5's all the way around or does it have to be staggered?

At least there's a bit more of a step to their lip than most of the other offerings that look like them (Coys/Vision/Legends/Boss).

Stefano, any idea when you're gonna get pictures up of a production set on a car? And will you still be selling them around September when I buy my Camaro? I might consider purchasing the wheels early like I did w/ my spoiler, but I dunno. I'd take them in Anthracite.

We are a stocking dealer and are only going to sell sets of 4 with the Stagger.

Right now we are not breaking sets up. Once the supply and demand has stabilized......wharehouses having them more readily available, then we can deviate from our game plan.

Other distributors will have them available too.

We include AR Caps, lugs and valves in our package price.

We'll take pics as soon as we get them in and mounted. We already have a waiting list. We are a dealer for AR but can't guarantee availability in the future. Every now and then we have to wait for production to catch up to demand.
