    Need rims - Looking for opinions

    Just lookin for some suggestions. I'm starting to get a headache trying to pick new rims for my car. Perhaps you guys can help me narrow my search.

    I know I want 18's, staggered in the $1500 range for rims and tires but that's a lot of options. Any ideas for me?
    Pics if ya can, Thanks.

    Wow I've never seen a hood done like that. Very unique IMO. I think something in black chrome would do it right.

    I have black torque thrust II's and o got them wrapped in 275 40 17's and they were 1350... So prolly around 1700 for 18's or something idk. What size tires do you want?

    Those were actually my first choice but I decided against it because you can't get a staggered fitment with 18's. Tire size, I'd like to keep it as close to stock specs as possible.
    I just got an offer on a set that looks much like these and I'm considering it.
    They are off of a Firebird and they look great on Firebirds but I never see them on a Camaro. Can't seem to find any decent pictures on-line either. What do ya think?

    Thanks for the nice comments and ideas. I appreciate it.

    I think those should look good. Most wheels that look good on a TA look good on a Z28, except for a few I've seen.

    That was the reason is that when I got them no one else had them. Still there is only on red TA wit a blk set. I'm not into Vette wheel on Ta's at all. They fit the Camaro style a little better. In Houston area there are just way too many people with Vette rims. I like the set he has pictured since I don't see that style much so it sets the car out in a crowd.

    First off, thanks for the replies. That's why I love this site. Great people.

    I like the z05's and z06's and they look great but they're everywhere. The black and chrome Torq Thrust M's were originally my first pick but my plan is to drop the car an inch or inch and a half and I think these will look better after it's lowered. I also thought I wanted black and chrome but after seeing a few cars with that color scheme it just wasn't enough for me.

    RPM r505 Hypersilver 18"x8" front and 18"x9" rear
    I've decided to go with the "not so common" look for a Camaro and I'm getting a really good price on them.
    Of course I could change my mind in the next 10 minutes. This is a really tough decision. Rims can make or break the car and I don't want to do something I'm going to regret later.

    my buddy just put those wheels (19s) on his SS that he is building back to life. hard to believe by the way it looks now, that this car was the victim to arson.
