Post Canada Buyers - Info and Orders

New to the site and have tried to find out some additional info. If anyone can help that would be great!

Want to buy/order but if I have to wait until fall then there's not much sense. Could this be true?

I'm fine with the LT with the convenience package. I'm wondering about the RS package. Sold on everything but the rims. Tried to find actual photos as the canada gm build your own website isn't great. US build your own was great but the 20" rim style (based on the site pictures)wasn't at all what I want. Is that what they acually will look like in Canada? Not to mention I live in canada and I will be driving most of the year. Try and find 20" winter tires. So its sad for me but it looks like I'll skip the RS package because of rim selection and cost to get functional rims and tires for everyday all year driving. I guess the car will still look great without.

Any help or sites with more info would be appreciated!
Thanks

Actually, the Camaro team worked with Pirelli to develop a winter tire in that same 20" size, so it will be available.

Yes, as far as product is concerned, what you see on the US site is the same.

Here's a picture of the RS rims, you can see the finish is a bit darker:

Great winter tires!

The rims on the US site are much much darker. More like pimp my ride look. Your picture isn't bad at all. Begs the question why they look so much different on the site? Apparently you can get the 20 polished at an extra $540on top of the $1995.00 which is what these must be?

If you're referring to the RS rims being much darker on the GM site...it's probably because you're looking at a flash animation, not a photo...so ALL the colors are going to be slightly different. I too was surprised at how darker they look on the site, because they don't look that dark in ANY pix we've seen. I guess maybe they just wanted to illustrate that they were darker then stock...I dunno.
