    Default 70 - 73 Camaro pics for a newbie....

    I'm new to the site and I'm looking for some inspiration. I just bought a 71 Camaro and can't decide on going with any of the following combo's. 17/17's, 17/18's, 18/18's, or 18/19's. I really don't want to go any bigger then a 19" wheel. Please show off your rides so I can see how all the sizes look. Thanks for any help or suggestions you can shoot my way.

    Excellent suggestion,and what I'd recommend.
    17" tires are still way more reasonable that 18's too.

    18's all-around:






    17's all-around:

    I've never been there but I'm sure gonna check it out. I have been outta the 2nd gen for a while. I had a very unique 96 Camaro SS. It was 1 of 92 with the extra set of R1 wheels and tires. I loved that car but it got to be a real pain working on it. Everything is WAAAAY too tight under the hood. The guy I bought it from ordered every SLP option you could get and kept it in his garage for just over a year and sold it to me. That's the car on my Fquick page. I'm really glad I sold it to start on my 3rd 2nd gen, I love them. I want to see some pics so I can get some ideas. Thanks to everyone on here for help and inspiration. I've never done a Pro Tour style thay have always been like street/ strip cars. I'll keep everyone up on my progress.

    Here's one we put 19s and 20s on that looks killer. Those sizes may seem extreme but will give you a good idea of how 18s and 19s will fit and look.

    Check out the photos at this site of my car and others,these will help you to determine the sizes that you are looking for. Mine has 17x9.5s on the front with17x11s on the rear. Johns right too, 18s will cost more. That might be something to consider when making your choice.

    No Mini Tub, just massaged the Seat Belt hump and rolled the lip.. I am running a 315/35/17 right now.. I was going to buy a 335 to see if I can get it to fit.. I have about an 1/2 inch on the inside and 1/4 inch on the outside..

    That thing is absolutely SICK!!!!!!! I love the stance and the color. I'm going with that new Vette color Jet Stream Blue. I might go with 11's out back and 9's up front.

    Keep the pics coming. All of the cars are awesome looking. No offense to the 1st gen guys, but I think the 2nd gens look the best when it cmes to PT.
