Just thought I would remind everyone not to over look the cadi CT6 wheels. The cadi CT6 is the PPV but but with a cadi frnt and rear and much nicer interior. The stocks are 19x8.5 or 20x8.5

I thought about them, but I wanted wider wheels

The car is a little dirty but got my new VMR 710 on today. Got 8.5" wide in the front and 9.5" in the rear.


What lug nuts work best with these wheels? I have hypersilver v810s inbound. Thanks!

nice fit on the rear...what brand of tire?

Have you loaded the car enough to find out if there's any tire rub?

Goodyear F1. Actually, I should have mentioned that this particular photo had the 4 "cast iron" stock wheels in the trunk and 2 stock tires still in back seat.

Edit: When loaded with above and spirited back roads driving - no rubs.

18" 2011 camaro stock wheels and tires with lugs from the PPV. I have silver lugs on order to replace them. AMAZING what difference a wheel change can make!

Those wheels are 2016-2018 Camaro, not 2011. This is 2011 Camaro alloy 18: (example) https://www.ebay.com/i/122693729177?chn=ps&dispItem=1

What tire size is this? If you're saying this is a take-off set of production Camaro wheels & tires, the size should be 245/50-18. Stock PPV tire is 235/50-18, with 27.3" diameter--XL rated, 97W/1709 lb. 245/50-18 is 27.7" diameter--SL rated, 100V/1764 lb. While speed rating may not be up to PPV standard, it shouldn't pose an issue unless exceeding tire speed limits is in your plans.

Tire Rack data on production Camaro 18" tire: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.js ... ard+Brakes

Agree--black lug nuts, and even dark/black center caps, and yes--a change of wheels DOES make a big difference. Pontiac knew how to do this: http://newcaprice.com/forum/viewtopic.p ... 64ac#p2250

Stupid money option, just to show what's out there:

Question: is your car (in photos) at stock ride height--ie. running stock PPV springs?

Stock suspension. And they are 2017, not 2011, running 245 50 18. Seller claimed less than 1k miles on the set. All for $400. I think I will order some black lugs and caps just to see which I like better.

I'm looking for a set of SS springs to stop it just a hair.
