Sweet wheels for 1st Gens...

I was browsing the discount tire website, and I found these wheels. I think these would look pretty clean on a 1st gen, giving it the modern-retro look. I think I'm going to nab a set of 17 inchers for my 67... What do you guys think? I know the center caps are kind've cheesy with the "Hot Wheels", but no big deal. Oh, and they're only $188 per rim.

I like those wheels too. That is the wheel that I am putting on my 69.

Darn it, now I have to pick another wheel if Billy is going to run these. No fair, I asked first. https://www.camaros.net/forums/showth...ght=hot+wheels

Actually, I think they look like crap, and you should both definitely choose something better like TTII's...

I like those if you're going for that 'retro-mod' look. In fact there is an optional wheel for the new Stang that has a very similar look which means that GM will probably have one if the new Camaro ever shows up.

Maybe you can have new center caps made with the Corvette Chevy double flag?

Re: Sweet wheels for 1st Gens...

Someone posted a wheel site that you can test fit/look at the wheels on the type/model of your car... I kind of liked the rod lites by weld on a 1st Gen.

Hah hah, nice try. Did you find anything out about the backspacing for the 17's? The way they list the measurements on their website is funky. I'm going to buy 5 of them, just in case, god forbid, I curb check or bend one. I was eyeing these back in February for my 81 Corvette, but I think they'd look better on the Camaro. I'll probably just join the crowd and throw TTII's on my Vette.
