I'm new to wheel sizing and want to make sure I get it right before I order.

I have a stock 68 and think 17" TT 2's would be nice. Does anyone have pictures and sizes?

Thanks in advance!!

It is your car and if you like the TT look,by all means go for it:yes:...but do keep in mind it is a very overdone look that every other car at any given carshow will have.If that doesn't bother you,then certainly...rock that look.:thumbsup:
However...if you're looking to stand out a bit from the crowd,try something different.You may also like the Foose Legends or even the Billet Specialties StreetLites which are both on sale this month over at www.driverzinc.com ...talk to Jon there and he'll hook you up,I'm sure he can match or beat those prices you linked...and he's an expert at fitment for your car so you know they'll fit perfectly too.
Check out their site and see if anything catches your eye...:beers:

Thanks! One last question, are you happy with the finish vs. going with a chrome finish? I'm worried about keeping them looking new.

I have chrome rims on my truck and they were starting to pit some after the first winter. I know I don't drive the camaro in bad weather, but I think the polished ones have a better chance of polishing back up. I usually give them a quick wipe down after I take the car out, and when I detail the car I use the Mothers powerball. It works real well.
