What rims?

I think I’m going to go with Matt black but could change if you guys change my mind. I have Matte stripes that’s why I was thinking of going with matte. But I’m trying to decide wether to get the 2014 ss rims or z28 rims.

I really feel the black rims fad is played out. For a couple reasons,

1) unless you are right on top of them, it's incredibly difficult to tell the wheel style. They look like every other wheel out there. Especially in gloss.

2) Nothing looks worse than dirty black rims. Very few people take the time to care for them properly. So a good 90 percent of the black wheels I see on the road look like poo-poo.

3) stand out, be YOU. Go with what ever makes you say OMG those are SWEET!

Here's a recent pic of my summer setup. Pay no attention to flying my drone in the rain

^^^^What he said. I bet in a couple of years there will be a fire sale on black wheels.

I like chrome. Motorcycles went to the black look also. Chrome pops.

Yep, chrome or polished and cleared like my M228'S. The 5 spokes are Feradda FR3's. I had black on my Camaro at one time too, but when I was at a show once and looked around, all the Mustangs, Challengers and Chargers had some foem of black wheel, and I said nope, gotta brighten it up!! lol

That's a cool pic of your Camaro, haven't seen a good look of it yet, just bits and pieces while you were working on it. Looks great with those wheels too!!

I love both those wheels on your car and am always partial to the Z28 reps, but that second pic...those Ferrada FR3's look so damned good with that offset. I love how deep they are. It just makes the stance look so fat and mean.

Same thing goes for Camaro2ss2010's wheels. I have never been a huge fan of the 5 spoke look, but man, if done right they just fit our cars so well...and you guys did them right.

Thank sir. Those Z28 reps look sharp and really pop in chrome.
