Arrow Got my D2 Forged VS1s on now...

Nine Ball strikes again... While I was away at C5 fest he was hooking me up w/ some wheels.

Put these on last night and took some pics tonight. Drop springs are on the way...

Sorry I forgot the important stuff.
22"X11" and 22X9"
Tires are 315/25 and 265/30 ZR22XL P Zeros

Doing a 1" drop to get the stance just right. A little too much gap right now. IMO

Why did you go with a taller tire in the front?

Those are the perfect touch. Lowering it will make it even more perfect if that is even possible.

That is the closest set you can get with 22's

Front is 28.3 and Rear is 28.2 inchs tall. Pretty close to stock too. 28.7

Very possible... will not rub at all. I caravaned to C5 Fest with a guy who had 1.5" drop same wheels and tires and he's even been on a road track w/ no problems.

I'm pretty sure these are the first Camaro VS1s in all Chrome. Derrick (D2Forged) can correct me if I'm wrong.

You are definitely man enough. I see a 3.5L listed in your signature, that takes a REAL man to admit
