Let me know what you all think

As it looks now:

Painted rims = chipped paint. Plan on repainting them every so often.

the torque thrusts look much better on T/A's anyway.... you should leave them alone though, unless you are planning on powdercoating them dont even bother. but honestly- camaros just dont look good with those wheels. whatever happened to A-molds being cool?

Personally, I'm a fan of the thin C5 Corvette 5-spokes on F-bodies. I really dig that. Or ZR-1s.

well obviously fikse wheels would be the ultimate!!! and torque thrusts arent bad wheels at all... its just that they dont look good at all on 4th gen camaros.

ever think about something like this?


they seem to be pretty hot right now...

but of corse you could always go with....


or the alternative...

i think the painted ones would look pretty nice, if you could keep em painted. like stink mentioned, powdercoating would really be the best option if you wanna do it right

See since i dont want a all the time drag car, i dont like the prostars or bogarts, and yeah they would be powercoated.

I wish I could find some nice cheap BBS's or CCW's
