Show me some big rubber

Thanks for the pics...wish I could see the car/wheels from a front/3/4 angle view to check out if the wheels fill out the wells. Nothing worse that a shy wheel with a skinny tire- think shrinkage ala Seinfeld. Ah well I'm looking to get some American Racing Torq Thrust aftermarkets -I like classics- but no way to order until I can specify the bolt pattern/offsets etc. Will I really have to wait until the car arrives to know this?!

are the black wheels in the first set of pics really 21s? they look small... I am going to get 20s aftermarket but I want a thinner sidewall... I was also thinking 22s, but then I would have to lower the car because it would sit too high and I dont want it to look ghetto lol

Looks like there's around an inch to fill towards the outside of the car to make it just about flush. As for wheel well gap, anything under 20s will have mondo wheel well darkness showing - check out the GS racer on 18s. Functionality of 18s are great, but I could smuggle my grandmother in the gap that's showing on that car - yikes!

I think 21's on a lowered camaro will be just about perfect

20s all the way,... plus tire costs for 21s is a bit more.

I'm reserving judgment on the 18 inch steel wheels from the LS until I can see a photo of them. I can tell that the picture doesn't do them justice at all. Any idea which wheel they are based off of? I'm assuming they come from an older camaro - hence the "heritage" aspect? I'm leaning back and forth between those and some 18 x 8.5 torque thrusts.

What are the standard size wheels for a 1LT/RS?...I'm not to happy with the 19" polished wheels,I see how they differ from the 20" SS wheels,looks like aftermarket wheels will be a must have for me.

the 1LT/RS comes standard with the 20x8 / 20x9 midnight silver wheels. they're the same as the SS wheels, only with dark finish

Not to say anything bad about bret03's awesome photoshop skills, but I thought I'd spend some time hunting down good photos of each wheel and update this thread.

18 inch Black painted steelie - 1LS only.


18 inch painted aluminum - 1LT only.


19 inch painted aluminum - 2LT only.


19 inch polished aluminum - 1LT or 2LT only.
None yet.

20 inch painted aluminum - silver finish - 1SS or 2SS only.


20 inch painted aluminum - midnight silver finish - RS only.


20 inch polished aluminum - 1SS, 2SS, and RS only.


21 inch aluminum - black finish - GMPP. All trims.


21 inch aluminum - machined finish - GMPP. All trims.




I didn't include the vert. concept/dale jr. rims because I couldn't find them in the GMPP catalog so I don't know for sure if they will be available or not. If you want me to add them I can.

Hope this helps people decide.
