I can't make up my mind. Tire questions.

When I purchased my 67 it had actual Magneseum slot wheels.

They were 14 inch. Not bad, but not great. I want to move up tp 17 inch rims, which has increased my options.

Can anyone tell me what the Metric measurement for the bolt spacing would be?
I actually like the BBS look for the German Camaro in the Wheels and Tires blog, but I need the Metric measurement so I could order them.

I am using 15in Rally wheels now,

and a possibility is the new Forged Rally Wheels, but I am afraid I may end up with Torq Thrusts.
That would not be the worst, it just seems like allot of people have them!

Re: I can't make up my mind. Tire questions.

if your thinking of going 17, consider going 18! there's much more tire selection in 18 vs. 17.

I agree. If you're thinking 17's you'll be wishing you went 18's down the road. JMPO...

Thanks this is what I need. I really like the BBS wheels but when I tried to search their or any companies page If I put in for my car it goes to the same wheels everyone are using. I just want something that stands out, and is not just a flat cut out. I am looking to show off the powder coated Disk brakes as well.
I will also take the advise and look into 18's, since I have nothing at the moment I am open to any suggestions till the day I buy them.

Re: I can't make up my mind. Tire questions.

You cant mix and match 5 x 4.75 with metric sizes, you will have big problems. Only use wheels that come in 5 x 4.75. 5 x 120mm seems so close but it will cause very high stress on your wheel studs possibly causing them to break, please do not use 5 x 120 on your camaro.

Thank you for the warning. I think I will go with 17" Torq Thrusts. They have a modist look, and come in the correct size.
