1968 Camaro on 18X8 and 18X11

Here is a 1968 Camaro I did for a customer. We call the wheel a T-Rex and the set-up is on a mini-tubbed Camaro
FRONT: 18X8 (4.50 b.s.)
REAR: 18X11 (6.50 b.s.)

Just showing some possibilities, I have lots of people call me from this forum and ask what they can do fitment wise.

Sorry; Blake, My problem was, he ran 2 posts, running a shop, then he came out and said several people asking about big tires. The Camaro in his picts is beautiful, but he showed up to show off.

Not sure why you are upset? This is not my car, I did not build the car I manufacture wheels and a number of my customers are forum members. I am a Camaro enthusiast who is building a 1969 now (see my introduction in the Welcome area). My customers suggested I post customer cars so others could see the possibilities and get fitment advice.

I thought that this was useful to members, not showing off.

I have a 67 that I am building and the color is close to that blue. I am at the point of looking for wheels, for me that's the hardest part. I can use all the pics I can get. Thanks for posting that one awesome car.

Yeah I'm all for wheel pictures and information. It definitely helps when trying to find proper fitment.

Looks great!

I know this is an old thread but does anyone know where you could get stock 18x11 and 18x8 wheels? I fear custom rims would kill my budget. Thanks
