21" wheels offered.

Does anyone think that the 21" wheels are nice, but too bad they aren't 20's? I think 21's are goin to be to big, for performance and ride comfort. What wheels do you guys think would look good on the car in the 20" size?

i think given the smaller sidewall it will be stiffer which will be great on corners and whatnot, but limits the flex of the tire during hard acceleration. the overall wheel size will stay the roughly the same, but it would be nice to have those wheels in a different size option.

i think the 21's are nice. im planning on getting them on mine. as far as ride, if your concerned about the ride then obviously bigger wheels arent for you. if you do the math, bigger rim+ smaller side wall = rougher ride. i personally dont mind a rougher ride. im used to it.

I like them, but I won't consider them until I see drag numbers for a stock Camaro on 20s and one on 21s. I'm not all about performance because style is important, too; however, I want to consider whether 21s will substantially inhibit drag numbers.

I'm not a big fan of the wheel options...but I'll wait to see them in person before making a final decision.

There will be alot of aftermarket options as well.

I agree with Blur as well, I want to see how the different sizes perform.

One inch is unlikely to alter the handling or ride unless they're much heavier than the stock 20s.

I personally don't like the look of the 21's, but each to their own. I'll either stay with the stock 20's or bump them up to 22's with a new spring kit to eliminate some of the fender gap. The ride will be a little rougher, but aftermarket shocks should make up for it. ")
