What would be the best size for the wheel well of the Chevy SS . These wheels on the corvette seem to be a bit big for the SS. Just trying to figure out the optimum size to fill up the SS wheel well.

If I could ever afford it, ADV.1 07TS track spec wheels



They look great on C6's

I like these but not sure if it would look good on the Chevy SS.

If I had to guess I would say 19 would look the best on the SS but this is just a rough guess since I haven't seen the car in person. Does any body know the stock oem size for the wheels of the SS?

The Chevrolet website says: "Polished aluminum alloy 19" x 8.5" front wheels up front and 19" x 9" wheels in back wrapped in ultra-high performance summer only tires"
Huh, I just noticed they have a typo: "...front wheels up front......"

haha fail!

seeing how the sock 19's fit, it seems like the SS lowered on 20 inch wheels will be ideal, wouldn't be surprised if someone attempts to put 22's on it.

Anyone planning to do staggered?
this being a RWD vehicle it will be very common to see that especially with the whole stance movement, SS owners might be more inclined to have an aggressive wheel setup. I would love to see an aggressive wheel setup on an SS but to a point that performance isn't sacrificed.

not on a DD car, only good for show, too much rim damage and poor road holding, also tire life is short, guys here do fit them but they don't stay on long before being replace with 19 or 20"

for anyone interested in concave wheels, seeing how there's this whole concave wheel fad going on



anyone know who makes these wheels? seems like something vossen or concavo would make. not sure if it's all that suitable for the SS

Is this picture from a SS press photo, or is it from the rim maker's website? They look really good on the SS. I would look into getting them.

I hate to say it, but the owner of this vehicle just about wrecked his fenders getting this look. (he did state that he was looking to get something "working" before he repaired, but....)

Camaro SS wheels and CTS-V (sedan) wheels should bolt right up. Camaro SS wheels will need a little smaller tires than stock SS tires, but many G8 guys are running them so searching through the G8 sites will share details on what tire sizes fit. CTS-V coupe wheels won't fit because the rears are too wide at 10". CTS-V sedan rears are 9.5". Fronts for CTS-V sedan and coupe are 9".

Just sharing more options with you all...

Some Black V sedan wheels would be spot on.

Those look like Vossen and are actually one of two styles I'm trying to pick between.
