I hacked a picture of my 68 to see if I'd like the HRE 545's on my car. I think it looks wicked. Let me know what you think....

I don't like it. 15 inch Ralleyes are the BEST looking wheels on a 1st Generation Camaro.......IN MY OPINION! KZ

It's all about what you like. Personally I agree with Kz. I'm just not into the modern pro-touring look. Give me 15x8 and 15x7 combo with a slightly jacked up stance. Hope I'm not showing my age too much!!

well to each his own. I like it, and that's the only way to run huge by large brakes on this car.
SAyers69- Dude- I didn't actually put the rims on the car. I stole the pics from a guy in Vegas, and Photoshopped it on my car.

Teetoe, I like the wheel, but I think 20 inch is too much IMO. I like the wheels you have on it now. But it's whatever you want, as you already know.

I think that 20" is a bit much also. What I would like for my 69 is 17" up front and 18" in the rear. This will allow for big brakes and plenty of options for rubber.

18's in the rear and 17's up front is definately the way to go.

The pic does look kinda cool though It's definately California for ya
