Old School Look

May want to eventually go to an old school look with my 2ss/rs. But those brembos seem to limit possibilities. Has anyone looked into whether Crager (SS) or American Racing (Torq-Thrust M) will fit? I really don't know too much about wheels so good advice would be appreciated.

I asked someone to photoshop these onto a Camaro for me a while ago.











20s are far to big on a 1st Gen (the biggest I would go is 17s or 18s) but for a 5th Gen, they might just be the ticket.

Can you try making them 20s instead of 18s and dropping the car a little? What's killing me on that picture is the horrendous wheel well gap. The sidewalls also seem to be taller than the stock 20s.

I don't think anybody makes an old school style wheel in a size that would work with this car. Nice idea though.

Wheel Vintiques....custom wheels up to 20", your choice of bolt pattern, your choice of offset, your choice of credit card. You want custom look, be prepared to pay custom prices. The 20" Rallys I posted earlier are from Wheel Vintiques.

I think the Foose wheels would look hot on the Camaro since they are a modern take on classic wheels.
