Hey now.....let's not go overboard. The Z06 is pure sex on wheels, even after being on the street for 3 years. I love the Camaro, but IMHO there's no way on earth it would win a beauty contest against the Z06. I actually think that the current Z06 may be the best looking of all of the production Corvettes in the last 30 years....and that includes the ZR1.

As someone that tried pre-ordering the LS7.... They told me no its not an option right now.

I have plans on calling them back and probably end up just ordering it and having them do the work. Hopefully I'll be able to roll it into the financing.

They definitely look wider than the stockers!!

Anyone? Bueller...

Did anyone get a good look at the wheels/tires? Even if it was just tire size??

I'd love to put some wider rims/tires on mine. Nothing crazy, just about like this concept...

Droooooooooooollllllling........

This is what I wanted to do to my '99 camaro but since I'm going to end up getting a new Camaro anyway I might as well wait to put the LS7 in the new one instead. ...........can't wait....

so if the they end up with an LS7 on the build sheet as a dealer-installed option, i guess that extra LS3 can replace the 4.3 in my truck

The LS7 Camaro is the best one there IMO, wish I was there to see it in person. That rear blackout looks perfect on the 5th gen.

305 35 tires on 20's, Hmmm I wounder How wide are the wheels?? are they 20x10.5"?? This is something that I would want to do. The camaro would look and handle even better with a wider footprint up front and back.

305's!! Wow, that's a lot of rubber. Smoking a 275 will be easier on my wallet. Maybe when I can afford that TVS s/c, I'll see about 305's.

YEAH BABY!

305's

Now the million dollar question is, did they have to massage any sheet metal to get 305's to work.

If not that is awesome.

I hope not. At Indy Turtle asked Al during the question session what rubber would fit. Al stated anything over what the SS came stock with would be pushing it and you might end up with some friendly rubbing. I wonder if Al was taking offset wheels into consideration. I would love to have this exact tire and wheel combo on my SS…

Thanks to MCMLXIX for the pic's.
