I really want to see all of the GMPP additions in person. I'm very excited about the wheel and performance options. GMPP has really made an astounding effort to stay ahead of the competition with parts and accessories. The Camaro is the best opportunity for GMPP to shine.

The 18" Aluminum looks like a new take 3rd Gen wheels...
I wonder if I can get the 18" Steelies to clear the Brembo calipers on the SS??

I'd think you could get the 18" Steelies to clear the brakes on the fronts but maybe not the rears. The 2008 Z06 runs 18's up front and 19's in the rear.

SS Front Rotors: 14"
Z06 Front Rotors: 14"
SS Rear Rotors: 14.4" <--This is likely what would keep you from running 18's all around.
Z06 Rear Rotors: 13.4"

its matter what wheels are looking at. you cant go apples to apples in size because there are differences in the thickness of the wheel. so maybe one 18 fits but another wont. those steel wheels could be thicker.

Thats what I wanna know. I dont want a 21'' wheel. Thats too uncommon, I got 22s now and to be honest, its not that great paying $650 for new tires. 20s are the perfect size for this muscle car.

I don't know about black 20s, but you get a smoked "midnight" silver if you order the RS package.

Dragon, thanks for posting, now, can we get bret03 to photoshop these babies?

i dont know. from what i hear it is veerrrryyyy tight back there. i hope i can fit somethign a little wider and not have to cut. id like to put 295 on at least. im gonna put a supercharger on so the more tread i can get behind me the better ill be.
can you get deals on HRE'S??? pm me if you can

I may sound stupid for wanting smaller wheels, but I think I'll be looking into stock ZR1-size wheels with some sticky rubber. I don't really like how tall the tires are on the 20s and I think the shorter tires on the ZR1 wheels would allow for a little less weight, better handling and breaking, and I just think they're DDG (drop-dead-gorgeous )
