    ?what size tires rims to replace my stock ss ones

    Looking to replace my stock 1999 ss rims (17 x 9.5)
    would like to go to 18" ? how wide and what tire size fits with out wheel rub.


    This should have been posted under wheels and tires but the back spacing is different on SS so I am told. Now I am asking you camaro guys.

    Thumbs up Think about C5 ZO-6 Corvette wheels

    Think about C5 ZO-6 Corvette wheels, they make them with proper offset for Z-28's
    We have !8" set & wouldn't think about changing them !!!
    I think the design & craftmanship is outstanding, from a machinist or engineer point of view..
    Just beware of tire size, so you can maintain rolling circumfrence...
    These wheels are also made fro Firebirds which have still another different offset.
    Enjoy your Ride; OL'PAL GARY

    True, Vettes rims are played too, but they're soo cheap to buy waaay better looking than the stock ones.

    Yes 17x11 in rear 17x9.5 up front.(I had to use a 3mm or >.119 spacer for
    tire rub on inter fender NOW FINE)


    And they are NOT CROME. And I think dark wheels on a dark care like mine look like shit.

    Hey 7Camaro what's wrong with your Hood !!

    I was thinking very strongly of getting this hood from SLP, but after seeing it here ;; is it in here or is it just me !!!

    Or could it be that you just loosely sit it on there for pictures, which would explain the fitment ????
    Would seriously like to know, before making my decision on Hood !!!
    Thanks

    That hood is on my old v6 and it is the mecham 4port extractor hood. It's actually all the way on, but everyone I've seen with it says it doesn't fit right. I actually liked it so much I just said I'd put up with it hahaha. It looks so mean because of the one scoop in the front and the 4 scoops in the back.
