I'm not a fan of the 21's...they don't seem to flow well with the clean lines of the Camaro. I think it's the little spokes that run along the larger ones and the bolt heads.

I wish they had made the 1st wheels in 20"...always thought it would be cool to have OG style steelies with beauty rings in 20".

In Camaro Wiki it says 18 x 17.5". Shouldn't that be 18x7.5"?

As far as the 21" wheels and tires go, I ordered my 2SS last week. The dealer told me that the 21" wheels is a $5000,00 option........... How can that be????

Ordered, 2SS, Jewel Red, Polished Aluminum

Show me some big rubber

Thanks for the pics...wish I could see the car/wheels from a front/3/4 angle view to check out if the wheels fill out the wells. Nothing worse that a shy wheel with a skinny tire- think shrinkage ala Seinfeld. Ah well I'm looking to get some American Racing Torq Thrust aftermarkets -I like classics- but no way to order until I can specify the bolt pattern/offsets etc. Will I really have to wait until the car arrives to know this?!

are the black wheels in the first set of pics really 21s? they look small... I am going to get 20s aftermarket but I want a thinner sidewall... I was also thinking 22s, but then I would have to lower the car because it would sit too high and I dont want it to look ghetto lol

Looks like there's around an inch to fill towards the outside of the car to make it just about flush. As for wheel well gap, anything under 20s will have mondo wheel well darkness showing - check out the GS racer on 18s. Functionality of 18s are great, but I could smuggle my grandmother in the gap that's showing on that car - yikes!

I think 21's on a lowered camaro will be just about perfect

20s all the way,... plus tire costs for 21s is a bit more.

I'm reserving judgment on the 18 inch steel wheels from the LS until I can see a photo of them. I can tell that the picture doesn't do them justice at all. Any idea which wheel they are based off of? I'm assuming they come from an older camaro - hence the "heritage" aspect? I'm leaning back and forth between those and some 18 x 8.5 torque thrusts.

What are the standard size wheels for a 1LT/RS?...I'm not to happy with the 19" polished wheels,I see how they differ from the 20" SS wheels,looks like aftermarket wheels will be a must have for me.
