Offset and lug pattern of CAMARO 5 x4.75?

Hello all just wanted to know if GM was going to keep up with the 5 x 4.75 lug pattern and if anyone know the stock offset? Thanks

I hope they keep the 5 x 4.75 cuz I have some nice 20's I want to try!

I doubt it, GM has been slowly but surely going metric on the bolt spacings and threading, I would expect the Camaro will be metric as well.

I know the GTO (and I think the G8) were 5x120mm. There's also been a move to higher offsets, which means smaller lips and less concave faces.

so this means any American Universal Rims that came out in 06' that would have fit 5 x108 (Most Fords) and 5 x 114 (Chrysler and GM) wont fit?? damn.

As far as I know, GM has forever been using the 5 x 115 set up.

not correct anymore....the G8 and the CTS both uses 5x120, which probably means the camaro will as well

I agree! ... Just checked the American Racing website and for the G8 a 20" x 8.5" rim uses the 5x120mm set up.

Thank God that the rims I want are also available in this set up too!

any news on the 21 inch wheel option. does anyone know where I can see a picture of them? I just placed my order for a 2ss/rs and the dealer could not show me what the 21 inch wheels would look like so I did not order them.

Along these same lines, does anyone know what the max width for the rear tires will be?

Which is why none of the extra rims I accumulated from having a 93 and 96 Camaro would fit on my GTO... 5 x 120.


So are we sure on what the Camaro actually has?

Camaro wheel size

Anyone have an answer yet as to what the rim bolting will be? Standard Chevy 5 x 115 or 5 x 120 like the GTO, G8, and others ?

Since the C4 Corvette and at least the 4th Gen Camaro the wheels have been 5 x 120. The offset and width is the issue.

Yes, but in past years, the suspension hasn't been designed in Australia. Holden (and the GTO and G8) use a 5x120 stud pattern, as does the new CTS, so it financially doesn't make sense for them to re-machine the hubs back to the English unit GM standard.

This having been said. 5x4.75 and 5x120mm are only .65mm apart. People have run F-body and Corvette wheels on GTOs, so it's possible. However, I wouldn't because I don't like the possibility of bending studs or wheels being neither hub or lugcentric. You can get a hub adapter to make the wheel hubcentric, but I still wouldn't do it. I tend to put a lot of stress on my suspension and I'd like to minimize the risk of breaking a stud.

I know there has been a move industry wide, but especially with Holden platforms, to place the rotor hat farther out on the wheel, which means you will need a higher offset to avoid rub. Factory wheels on the HSV Clubsports/GTS sedans (beefed up G8s with LS3s and TR6060s) are runs 20 x 8 ET48 Front, 20 x 9.5 ET57 Rear. Very high offsets and these two cars share suspension architecture.

This is not true. Your rims and C6 rims are 5x4.75 still.
