    are the OEM Base C6 rims too big for the Camaro?

    alright, I want an honest answer here. I have some base 2007 C6 rims sitting in my room waiting for tires, 18's and 19's. I found some pics of a Camaro with some on it on LS1Tech, so this is not my car. I'm worried that the back rims are too big. what do you guys think?

    Those look pretty good on that Camaro, not too big at all. I have 18"x9.5" C6's all around on 275-35-18 rubber, but I have a WS6 though.

    I think they look very nice on a Fbody I was thinking of getting the same rims but there seems to be so many camaros and ta with thim that I have changed my mind. I am more into the looking different look so I am trying to find some nice rims that I haven't seen on a camaro. But they do look very good.

    those look amazing! I'm worried that it was a bad choice getting 19's in the back since tires cost more and I can't rotate them, and I think that 18's all around look really good.

    I have the same wheels on my TA, (18's and 19's) and they look awesome. I've got some 1.25" spacers on the way to make the rear look right.

    What size wheel spacers do you have on the Camaro? In my opinion the rears look like they stick out a bit too much.

    I don't know how big the spacers are on that car, probably at least 1.25"s. I'm going to try and go with 1" spacers. we'll see how it goes.

    so you need spacers with the stock corvette C6's, for the 19" rears? on an 02 SS?

    yep, I'm going to try and squeeze them in as close as possible once I get the tires on. I'll keep you posted.

    I know this is a 2 year old post but was wondering how the 1" spacers worked out. Did they fit or did you need the 1.5"?

    I had to cut down the wheel studs a 1/4 inch. Besides that they work fine.

    I think 18's all around is the way to go. The 19's in the back look too big to me

    2K2SLPSS, I think the 18/19" wheels look perfect. It does need lowered though. What do you plan on going with to lower it?

    Looks good and once it's lower it should sit nice. I have staggered 18's and it looked high to me till I installed the new bmr 1.25" springs and it look 100% better.
