OMG!! Those pics are horrible quality!
Kidding, Those are going to look awesome on the car!! I'm not a huge fan of black, but I am of those wheels and your car I think it will fit perfectly with the whole look!

on a side note that last photo makes me laugh. You have a whole range of shoes, one person in flip flops, another in regular shoes and then another in rubber boots LOL

It's funny when he says this and they still look better than 90% of the shoes people are throwing on their cars.

Well done, I'd love to know/see more about those wheels.

They look Kim Kardashian Hot.

The car looks amazing!!! What did you use to black out the tail lights. I love the flat black look to them.

Ivan,

He ordered the Cor Forged "Precise" wheels. 22x9.0 fronts, 22x11.0 rears. Matte black centers, gloss black lip, yellow color-match pinstripe and centercap logo. Might be the 2nd set of these built for a Camaro. One of my favorite wheel designs, ever.

Tony

I think i decided to paint the calipers gloss black with a yellow brembo decal. I feel if we did yellow calipers they would take away from the wheels.

Your car looks awesome. The wheels just plain "fit". You definitely have the eye to match components and make them all look integrated. Very nice !!!
