    Just go with a good looking, 5 spoke 17 or 18 inch wheel with some nice rubber on them.

    Your car looks pretty good, don't ruin it with ridiculous wheels. If your dad is offering to buy you 22's, which I'm sure are a shit load of money, just use that money elsewhere like a supercharger or something. just my 2 cents.

    +1 I'd rather have more go fast goodies than more bling. These cars were made to go fast, not haul around hundreds of pounds of chrome.

At first I laughed at the idea but, the more I think about it the better I would like to have a kick ass set of 22"s . I mean they would have to look better than my powder-coated ZO6 rims. Has anybody on here ever put big rims on there car? I thought about running a 285/45/R22 would I have any conflicts?
    What's wrong with the wheels you have now? You said you have Z06 Rims.. . .Post a Pic! Let's see those jewels.

    But yes, 22's would be hideous on an F-Car. . . .Your (Dad's) money, your car, your choice! IMO, . . . .if Bling is what you are after then, 18's maximum! I will stay with 17's on mine, yes I actually like the factory rims just fine! Color me crazy, But that's me!

    The wide-5 polished aluminum WS6 wheels are some of my favorite wheels in existance. I wouldn't trade mine out for anything.

    I do not intend to make this sound bad, but if you want some "bling" wheels put them on a different car. Rims like that don't belong on f-bods.

    Like someone mentioned earlier nothing looks better than a set of 15" bigs and littles.

    Yo, I agree and disagree. 22's would not look good and mess up the performance and handling of your ride. However I have seen a few f-bodies with 20's on them and they looked nice. Most of the posters on here wouldn't go above 17's or maybe 18's. I personally like a chrome 18-20" if done with taste.

    IMO, I would stay with the Z06 Rims you have. Give the car much more muscle look. The one you said you ordered just look too ricer to me, just my $.02.

    The reason I got them was because I like the feeling you get when pulling through a parking lot and blinding people with your rims. I had a white ext cab sonoma on 24"s. Plus with the 17"s I could have the best of both worlds!!! Bling+

    those z06 wheels look f-in amazing... maybe you should spend that money on some serious stereo gear instead? you could get two 12" brahmas, custom box, and a 1500wrms amp for much less than new rims...

    hell you could probably redo your ENTIRE audio system, headunit, components, several amps, etc, all for less than the price of your new rims...

    just food for thought...

    Biggest wheel that looks good on a Camaro/Firebird is an 18".
    I stuck with the 17's myself.

    WS6 rims are pretty cool... I still can't get over the fact that they really aren't chrome!! that is some good polishing....
