    If you are looking for the glossy painted centers AR does not sell them you will need to either get them painted, or powder coated. The do offer a non-glossy painted center they look ok but nothign like the glossy ones.

    I went to American Racing's website, and they do have the glossy-gunmetal (they call it "anthracite"). They're called Torq Thrust M. I just dont know where to find them on the web. I looked at Jegs, and they do have them just not in 17x9 with a 5x4.75 bolt pattern for Camaros...

    Everybody, thanks for your feedback. It helped a lot! I finally ordered my wheels and tires for $1,200. I got the gunmetal TT M's with 275/40ZR-17s (Kuhmo Ecstas).

    Tire Rack. They were the lowest price I could find for brand new wheels. Good looking out, Clint195!

    What brand tires and sizes did you go with? Any rubbing issues? Is your car lowered or stock suspension. I have a 02 T/A WS6 (stock suspension) and I am considering 17x9 up front and the 17x10.5 out back; I just want to make sure that they won't rub because I do not want to hammer the wheel well or roll the fenders.

    No you will be fine with stock suspension i went with the Nitto 555r 315/35/17for the rear and i had no problems on stock suspension up front i went with the Nitto 555. The NItto 315's dont run as wide as other brands but i would say it is a good tire. But next time around i am going to run the new Mickey Thompson Street radial which is a little wider. Any ways keep my posted on what you do. If you have any questions let me know.
