I'll soon be in the process of swapping out the suspension on my camaro and running bigger brakes. I'm currently running a 15 Torque Thrust wheel but I'll need a larger wheel to clear brakes. What I'm seeking from you guys a temporary wheel recommendation that will fit inside the wheel well (front and back) when lowered until I can get custom wheels at a later date when my budget allows. will 4th get wheels work for my needs or corvette wheels from some year? Looking for a 17" or larger. The car will also get mini tubs with a stock length rear for the temporary period.
Looking for a cheap solution too. I do not want to buy new wheels. I'd be searching for something I could get used with tires for next to nothing. Got to save for the nice forged wheels later on.
You might want to try looking for some older 17" BMW rims/tires, they have a decent offset that might work. Thing is Camaro spacing is 5x120.65mm(5x4.75") and the BMW are 5x120mm so for a roller they're probably are ok. Actually some guys run the BMW rims on their PT cars cause of the cost.
Cheapest approach might be to see if you can find some used 17" wheels, short of that, Wheel Vintique sells plain jain wheels. What I'd do is grab a set of used 17" anythings on eBay or CL that fit maybe even with tires and sell them when your done with them. I just sold a set of Vision Chrome 17" X 8" wheels on CL 2 months ago for $300.
One wheel had a 2" minor curb rash and they were all 8" same BS. I had three guys backed up ready to buy if the first guy didn't show with the cash. This is the kind of deal you should be looking for. Even buy the tires you want and mount them, then transfer when you get the desired wheels. They are now on some guy's Monte Carlo and he loved the deal.
