BumbleBee Rims

Does anyone know where I can buy the BumbleBee rims from the movie Transformers 2?

Thx but the ones from the dealership are not the ones in the movie. I want the same ones used in the movie. Unless I'm wrong and they are the same ones. The pics I've seen look like different rims. I haven't tried SLP, I'll check them out. I'm also looking for the body kit used in the movie.

There is no difference i just compared the picture, the only thing i see different is a bowtie in the middle of the cap. I think you would be happy

Sorry, but it's not the same. there's black where there should be chrome. Close but no cigar. Eventually someone will make the same rim.

The SLP rims can be striped and repainted. Its the exact same rim just not the same color, after repainted they are identical.

and there would be no way the same rims bumblebee has in the movie are being sold anywhere, cause they're 22'' in the rear and 21" in the front.

Is it illegal to put rims on your car that are two diferent sizes? I am interested in setting up a Camaro with rims like bumblebee has in the first movie, (they're hubcaps), but anyways. The rears are larger than the fronts and that's what I want to do. Are the specs the same for the first movie model as well. 22" rear 21" front?

You can easily run bigger wheels out back vs up front. But you need to use a tire combination that keeps a similar total diameter.

The Corvettes and a lot of other cars run different sized wheels front and rear.

But be careful of very heavy wheels. A wheel that looks similar to the stock wheels in a 22'' size will be very heavy and negatively affect the car's performance. The wheels would need to b forged to keep them at a reasonable weight.
