Okay...I'm changing my mind again

I'm at that fragile stage in the early restification phase. I need to decide and purchase a wheel/tires setup to measure and make the necessary modifications. I think I'm going with 17x7 or 17x8's or 18's up front and 20x12 rear. I've decided the only way this size looks good to me on a '69 Camaro is with the center painted and the lip polished.

So...please help me decide on tire sizes that will be approximately the same overall heighth and will look good. Also, can someone point me in the direction to who will make a 20x12? I'd like to find a somewhat modern design that's fairly simple. No bling. Painted center with a polished lip.

Thanks

Re: Okay...I'm changing my mind again

haha. Well I could still change my mind again tomorrow. I still might go 17's front and 18's rear. Either way I can't seem to find any 18x11 or 18x12 as well as 20x12's online.

Re: Okay...I'm changing my mind again

Intro wheels makes a 20x10 which is really a 20x11. Also, Budnik may be able to make a custom width for you but it may be expensive. both companies will powdercoat the centers. hope that helps. If you look at intros site add one inch to every width. If you have any more questions call Dave at intro wheels. good luck. If you have a deep pocketbook try, boze forged, forgeline, fiske, ccw, kenisis...thats just of the top of my head for now. Budnik and intro are the cheapest.

Thanks for the reply. I'll look into those. I also found out Colorado Customs makes 18x12 and 20x12's as well. Another problem I'm facing is that the biggest tire sizes for 18's and 20's are recommended for 11 or 11.5" wide.

335/30 is recommended for an 18x12. That size is readily available from several manufacturers. I have no idea what would go on a 20x12.

Re: Okay...I'm changing my mind again

Michilen Pilot Sport 335/30-20 - rim width range 11.5 - 12.5 measured on a 12 wide wheel priced at $441.00 at the Tire Rack. Tire height is 28" tall so 4" sidewalls (not too bad). Hey lots are guys are running 335/30-18s on 12s inside DSE mini tubs. It's a matter of personal taste but if you go with the 20s in the rear you need at least 18s in the front. Billet wheels will definitely be the cheapest (if that word even applies here). You can also add HRE to the list of high end stuff. All the companies that were mentioned make 12s but they are special order (spelled expensive).
