What wheels do you think?


Hey guys!
What do you think would look best on my 67? Black or gun metal/grey wheels?
I am going with staggered 17 front 18 rear. I am putting the wheel well trim on.

Re: What wheels do you think?

I could see black wheels with chrome or polished hoops. I think Gun metal would not not look right with the silver.

Re: What wheels do you think?

Why staggered wheel sizes? I like the chrome myself.

ZLP:
I like those rims, but I prefer a flat lip all the way through.
Guy:
I feel that a Camaro with all same size wheels has optical illusion that the front wheels are bigger than the rear. It will also give me the rake look I want without a lot of suspension modding.

Re: What wheels do you think?

I'm not a fan of chrome wheels on our cars.

Re: What wheels do you think?

Unless you are going the full pro touring route I think 5 spoke wheels look best on our first gens. My wheels are TT-D's with grey center and polished lip but down the road I may darken them as I think it would look better. I'm on 15x7's with 60 series 225's up front and 245's in rear but will go 255 in rear next time I need tires. Since most of us run different width tires front vs. rear it really doesn't matter if rim diameter is different as you aren't going to rotate them anyways.

Re: What wheels do you think?

Here are mine. I think they are the same as the first ones that you posted. I got them from discount tire direct. Great price with tires mounted and balanced and delivered to my door. Just bolt them on and go. The wheels came with lugnuts too. Mine are 17x8 and 17x9.5 i think. 235s in the front and 275s in the rear. Front is lowered 2" but i havent done anything in the rear yet bc im going to replace my 10 bolt and get rid of the mono springs for some multi leaf
