stiff ride, IMO(if lowered). Stock height wouldn't be as rough. Gotta take into account $ of tires too..
content w/ factory, for now..

You better try to ride in a car with them before you do it. Wish I would have. No way in hell would I have went 22s if I had.

I think there is nothing nicer looking than a 22in wheel on these Camaros but a nice set of 20's with some fat meat on them look good also!!!!!!!

If anyone wants to ride in my car with 22's and pedders coils I will be more than happy to take them for a ride, and I live in NYC THE BRONX pothole galor. Alot of stock guys drove in my car and can't believe how close to stock it is. You have to dodge a few potholes and take the bumps easy but I am soo happy with my set up.

i personally don,t think the 20,s fit the car...22,s really fill the fenders for a good look...i wanted so bad to stay 20,s but after a million photoshops on my car..20,s just don,t look near as good as 22,s..

I didnt notice too much of a difference at all from the stock 20's--- Dueces look better in IMO, but the stock 20's fit the car pretty good.

Double dueces all the way. I plan on ordering mine soon. Already lowered with H&R springs so it should look SWEET upon install!

Yeah, people love the looks, but they don't think about the negative effects (performance, handling, ride quality) of running larger wheels.
I watch guys zig zagging down the street trying to aviod every little bump because they're running 22'' wheels with a drop.
And coils = $1500.00 of additional cost on top of new wheels and tires. That's not for everyone.

I would stick with the 20's (that's what the car was designed for) and lower the car. Much better look in my opinion, but you know everybody's got one.
