I went a different route instead of black like i originally planned and went with the concave Niche targa in silver.
Nice to see you didnt go with the most overused colour of rims for these cars. Your rims look really nice.

Ya..looks good on some colours but not on all. Every plasti dip rim project is black. The only time i would have black rims on a car is if I had your colour with black accents or a zl1. White cars with black accents look great.

Love the Z28 rims. And those Niche Targa wheels are pretty cool. Those are the 2 I am deciding on.

True black is the go to for everyone... I would really like to go a different color myself even with a white car... Something like Red or blue. Would be interesting

Now I have to disagree lol....white with black accents are the 2 colours that really pop when put together imo.

Style is very much a personal preference. There is a sticky in the tires and wheels section called custom wheels gallery. There are a ton of pictures of various styles of wheels on Camaros of all colors. It helped me out to visualize what they looked like on the car before I made a purchase decision. I went with polished ZL1 replicas because I did not want black wheels.

Only you can decide what the ultimate look of the wheels will be for the look your going for. I like chrome, even though my accent color is black I am old school and have changed vinyl a few times and chrome though does rust by pitting mildly if made well.

Many just buy the $1200 Foose wheels, others go replicas, I like the ZL1/Ile in chrome but I know no matter what I get it would be better in lacquered polished aluminum from my half century of being a hot rodder. What ever you get to go old school , or go new aero look its a case of what floats your boat and what you have the $ for so shop around. And know your own taste.





I am sorry but I have owned and modded so many cars that ones choice may be more heritage to another brand, honey combs always remind me of firebirds and trans ams.
