Re: Hate it or Love it

Love it...I know it will be too extreme for some, but this car stands out in a class all its own IMO-,especially in combination with that color. Bitchin'....well done! Would look even better with a rear disc brake kit... More pics please.... Also, give us wheel /tire sizes and backspace specs.

Re: Hate it or Love it

Look Very Cool! I really like it, but (yea you know there's always a but somewhere) I would prefer 17's up front and 18's in the rear. Just my $0.02.

Re: Hate it or Love it

Since you posed the question, hate it or love it, here's my opinion. It looks like you have a very beautiful Camaro there, except for the wheels and tire size. I think it would look much better with the same wheels in 15 inch. Old cars need sidewalls. Just my opinion. I support anyone doing to their cars what they like and not worring about what others think, but since you asked, I'll leave my opinion, and it's just that, my opinion.

Love it, but, aka behold the underlying truth, think you might want to consider at least a 13" rear disc package. Fills up the open design wheels quite nicely. The car does look sleek, congrats on everything

Re: Hate it or Love it

The wheels are Intro Pentia's 18x7(18x8 actually) and 20x8.5(20x9.5) as for the backspacing, I have not measured them yet. when I talked to Dave at intro and told him what I wanted he was more than persistant on his backspacing specs. he hit it dead on. the tires are 225/40/18 and 255/35/20. thanks for the comments. as for those who dig the 15x8 "old school" style, here ya go with a before shot. here is an engine shot too for viewing pleasure. thanks for all the good reviews and opinions. oh ya, rear disks will be a later add on.

I do like the look of your car... but I'm not into the "big wheels" look.

Re: Hate it or Love it

Very nice look. Does anyone have pictures of 18" on rear and 17" on front?

Re: Hate it or Love it

That really transforms the car. Now you'll need to fill those huge hoops up with some bigger brakes.

Re: Hate it or Love it

IMO, it looks good and will look even better once you get a big brake kit on the rear. I like the wheel size but the rear tire profile is a bit too low for me. I was thinking of doing 18"ft+19"rear. I don't like anything smaller than 17's unless you have a concours stocker.

Love it - Love it - Love it. Great choise! You said you want to play with the stance a little. I think the front is good maybe bring down the rear till the top of the wheel is at the fender lip like the front. For what it's worth if you're going to drive it the front is about as low as you can go and not go crazy trying to avoid every little bump. I know this look is not for everyone but I think if you bring the back down just a little to match where the tire is in the wheelwell with the front you nailed it! It's your car and your opinion is the only one that counts but you get my vote. Great choise of wheel and tire sizes! The front and rear tire sidewalls match perfect even if the sidewalls are a little short for some others taste. I hope your happy with it - the wheel/tire combo really compliment your car. Enjoy and watch those potholes. LOL.

Re: Hate it or Love it

I really like the look just the way it is. Great color (I think it's several shades darker than I picked), and the wheels and stance look fine.

That said, personally I have to have more sidewall because the fine PA roads woud tear my ol' vert to pieces if I had that little rubber meeting the road.
