    I was running Boyd Coddington Smoothie II's at 18"x10" with a 315 wide tire. It did rub slightly but an adjustable panhard bar fixed that up.

    17x11 or 18x11 is easily installed... gotta make sure you have a adj-PHR to minimise chances of rubbing due to GM clearances on stock PHR

    I've heard that on the Camaro you may have to remove or relocated the bump stops. This is just what I heard as I have a Trans Am.

    With going with a 10" or 11" rim I would sudjest the panhard bar. Or take the chance of rubbing in you take a corner to hard.
