Ok, I'm curious. I was just watching some Camaro vids, and decided I really like the Wheels on the Convertible the best.

Coupe Wheels:


Convertible Wheels:


Or, "it doesn't matter, I'm getting Aftermarket"

Or, "Wheels don't really matter to me, I'll take whatever they have".

Those wheels on the 'vert are hawtt **** on pics, but I might go aftermarket if I don't like them in person.

I'm guessing they'll be just fine and that I'll want to spend money on performance upgrades rather than wheels.

I would love to have a set of concept wheels same size. But I would probley use the largest fatory wheels even if it doesn't come on them. I kinda like OEM wheels best.

I'll probably do a 19/21 or 20/22 aftermarket combo, but for the concepts, I like the brushed and polished look of the convertible concepts wheels.

I like the silver concept's wheels, but not the best wheel for me. I believe I will go for an aftermarket 18x9/18x11 wheel in either a Chip foose black Nitrous wheels or a gunmetal C6 Z06 setup. But its all on what fits and what doesnt.

My personal opinion is the 21 and 22s are to big! Look at the cost of rubber! I really like the staggered look like some of the vettes have come with (Z06) but wideth in the back with 19s and 20s, or even 18s and 19s and I will keep the stock wheels till I run out of things to upgrade or spend money on. I don't like the kiddish trend of massive rims and 1 inch of rubber. Its not functional and that is what I'm looking for.

I totally agree. Take the GTO for example, they look better with the 17's instaed of the 18's cause they have more meat on them. Now i know the Camaro has bigger wheel wells and it does need bigger wheels and tires. I think 18's threw 20's. Preferably the 18's. The smaller rim size the bigger the tire=more meat under the car. Plus a slightly smoother ride.

I would not want a tire bigger than 18, you need some rubber on the tire for safety & ride comfort. :patriot:

I'll take the best looking I can afford when I purchase and go aftermarket a year or two later.
Yeah, that's my plan, too. I need some nice looking stock ones for putting R-compound tires on for Autocrossing, and then I'll have some aftermarket for the street.

Forged 3 piece 18"ers on all four corners. Probably Fiske/HRE/CCW. I'll run stockers before I put Chinese pot metal crap on it.

I'm going to get me some aftermarket rims for my camaro, the concepts' rims aren't bad but I want some nice chrome rims. But I'll keep the stock wheels possibly for winter time if they are good for snow. And I do want 20s! ;)

I hope for the coupe's wheels in a size 17. I just hope we still will be able to easily throw 16" or 15" wheels on the rear with a pair of et streets on them.
