    sorry but im not gonna kiss ass about these wheels...they suck, IMO...im saying the wheels suck, not you, or your ride...

    neither style C5 wheel looks good on Camaro's. PERIOD! they just dont compliment the body style...

    1) over played by damn near ever F-body owner. thank god they arent painted black...
    2) too boring of a design...people have become used to them by now...no WOW factor anymore...
    3) seems to be the crutch people fall back on when they cant decide whats a good looking set of wheels for their car.

    now your car looks like every other camaro/firebird out there. woo hoo...

    go get you some junkyard dogs or smoothie II's. hell even the SS chrome 10-spokes would look great on your car. get something that has a little edge and attitude to them...

    hell, im looking into these wheels for my '95 TA project car...

    I think the chrome Z06 wheels look pretty good on your car....certainly a step up from the chrome Y2K's.

    Personally, I love my stock SS 10-spokes however I can't stand the fact that no one makes the 11" rears (and I'm not too excited about the thoughts of widening the stock ones). If I had to change wheels, I'd love to get a set of the studded chrome C6 wheels -- that's just my $.02.
