love the XO Milans. I actually narrowed it down to the Lorenzos and the XOs but went with the Lorenzos. Those are cool though!

I've got 22's and really like them. I didn't notice any hits in performance either.

Ive had a few sets of 22s and 20s. Both are nice but I love my 22s. Havnt noticed much difference in performance on the street.

Has anyone done 22" rear and 20" in front? Will that affect ABS?

Thank you! My first one was this color and when I stepped up to the SS I had to do it again.

Having the "22s I had no real loss in performance. My dyno numbers were the same as those with 20" OEMs and running headers, HFC and catback exhaust.
It's all good as far as I'm concerned.

I recently switched back to 20" wheels from 18" wheels. Does my car still feel fast? Yes it does, but I know I've lost performance (straight line) even if I can't feel it.
I would guess at a minimum my car would be .2 slower in the 1/4 mile. That equates to 20 hp loss.

GM explained with their 19" Z28 wheels that
1. the wheels are lighter
2. the balance of the wheel's weight is moved in closer to center
These two factors increase performance.

Moving up to 22" wheels definitely decreases performance. Anyone thinking that they don't is kidding themself. Even if you get light weight 22" wheels, you're still moving the balance of the weight further from center which makes it harder to get the wheel/tire moving.

GM tested their 21" wheel option vs. 20" stock wheels. They found that the 21" wheels slowed a Camaro SS down by about .2 on average (which is like losing 20hp from your car).

24" wheels - forget about it. I would guess at least .5 slower down a 1/4 mile. That would equate to 50hp decrease in performance. You would probably need an intake, headers, and a tune just to keep up with a stock Camaro.

Didn't the Hotwheels Edition Camaro perform better with the 21's than the regular SS with 20's?

22" or 24" wheels

Yeah I wouldn't recommend 24s unless you are going for looks only. I went with 22x9.5 all the way around wrapped in 265/35r22. Still has pretty much the same ride as the stock heritage 18s I had.
