    Question

    Whats you bugget?

    Chrome, silver, or black finish?

    17s, 18s, or 19s?

    How wide?

    Staggered width, or height, or all the same size?

    Are you willing to use spacers, roll the finder lips, or do the BFH mod to make the wheels fit?

    Great talking to you Shane. I'll keep your number and see if you've sold them come spring time.

    I know your asking on rims but thats alot of $$$. Might not be to bad o save that money from the new weels and tires and do somthing else to your car could poss get alot of stuff (headers, fast intake, suspension)

    Here are pics of my black '98 Z28 with 19" C6 rims all the way around, and then 17" Z06 rims all the way around...that's 2 of your 3 choices.

    I sold the 17" rims to put the 19" rims on, but now I'm thinking I'm going back to the Z06 rims, but in 18x9.5...

    go back with the z06s, those 19s look so out of place on that car.

    ...I've actually already got a new set of 18x9.5 chrome Z06's in the garage...I just need to come up with the money for the tires. The 17's looked odd to me once I lowered the car, and I still think the 19's look OK, but I think the 18's will be exactly what I'm looking for.

    Here's another pic with the 19's:

    Don't go with Z06's unless you want your car to look like just about EVERY other black Camaro out there.

    Those wheels are so played out it's not even funny, and never looked that good in the first place IMO.

    Out of the ones you mentioned, I like the look of the C6's the best, I think.

    The TT2's would look good in the antracite color on your car too, the black TT2's are too much black IMO.

    too me if it doesnt have a lip not even slightly dont even bother. Ive seen all types of rims on camaro's and it is preference but i would never put one on without some sort of lip. Out of the ones you want the C5Z06 look nice and the TT's.
