If I remember right I had junk in the gas tank and I got it cleaned out but I had to send the carb back to AED to get it dialed in. California gas does that to a fuel system if you let the car sit around. If you get a chance to use them AED is first class. The part number for the American TTO wheels is VS3095761 I think you can still buy them from Summit or Jegs.

Your white Camaro SS looks really nice. Great stance!
Yea, I am kind of leaning towards the natural finish myself. I think the lighter color would look good against the orange paint.
The car sits right now with what looks to be 15x8 SS Wheels with 215/60 on the front and 265/60's on the back. The old owner says they do not rub but I will know early next week when I get it.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: 92646</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I usually go with the new 15X7 American TTOs with the natural finish on the spokes. They have been a little hard to get because of the finish but I have had the best of luck with the fit and quality of the wheels when I put them on a Camaro. Most of the time I run P215/65/15 or P225/60/15 with a little rubbing in front and I have run 255/60/15 in the back with a little rubbing depending on the car but I have run P245/60/15 with no problems. I have had better luck with the new wheels made in China than I have had with the originals because of the thick flanges on the originals. </div></div>

Just stellar looking, whew.

Digging this up from the past.....

I never got around to getting the TTO's and tires but now I am ready.
So I think this post shows me which wheels to get. Now my big question is on the tires.
Right now I am running SS wheels that are 15x7 in front with 215/65/15 tires and 15x8's in rear with 255/60/15 tires. Tires do not rub and look really good with great stance. But what I am after are bias ply tires the same size as what I have or closest to. Seems like an E60 would match the fronts and maybe a G60 or J60 for the rear? Anyone running a setup like this?
Also, if you have pictures that would be nice also.

You might want to consider the new radial tires that look like bias ply tires. Bill Rose put a set on his Nova and the tires looked great.

Yes I would love to have the new radials but they do not come in the a good beefy size for the rear.

I was going to stagger the front and rears using Goodyear Polyglass mounting G60 rears and F60 fronts on 15"x 7" Torque Thrust wheels but decided to keep the tires the same so I could rotate them when needed. This shot shows 7" wheels with F60/15 front & rear. They fit real nice and while I would think one could go with G60's for a bit wider look, I personally like the F60 fit myself. The best price was Summit and the tires came mounted and balanced with cheap shipping. Can't beat them for deals on wheels.

Looks super nice! Are those TTO's? I think the F60 is slightly narrower than an E60. But they sure look beefy on your car

The 255's on the rear just look so mean. I was never a fan of the staggered look until I bought this car like this already.
