Question Anyone a fan of the LS heritage steel rims?

I like the blue, silver, & red color Camaro LS's. Base model
is cheaper, plus I could always upgrade my wheels. I just want to find
out everyone's input.

I actually do like those wheels. It wasn't an option for me, as there was no way to get a Red Jewel LS camaro. Plus I wanted a sunroof and the halo headlights.

They look good. If they were mine, the only thing I might do is get them chromed.

I have them, use them for the winter, Replaced the outer Rings for Chrome ones that I found on Ebay. I also like the way they look.

I LOVE them and wish they were available in 20's for my SS.

Wife didn't care for them so they're relegated to winter duty and have American Racing Villains for summer.

They are ok for winter (snow) tires if you are going to get new wheels. However, The LS will only go 118 mph as it has a limiter on it. The LT1 and LT2 with 19" wheels will go 155mph before the limiter kicks in. This information is in the 2013 Camaro specs brochure under the proformance section.

Most people don't know this.

It's hilarious how much my father hates them. He keeps asking me when I'm going to buy my new summer rims every time I visit the 68. (as if paying for my wedding wasn't first priority)

I don't mind the look, they will make great winter rims this year.

The rims were one reason I chose my 1LS since I really like them. I think they give my Camaro an old COPO look.

Being into old hot rods a new Camaro pulled up next us, at first I thought how cool, a set of polished Halibrand's on it, they were the stock Heritage wheels with some aftermarket chrome cap on them. I do like them better than the base alloys even black.
