    Like em both. The Sprints WIN. I like a LIL more tire, but your larger spokes look great too. With that color on that car...You can do no wrong.

    Cool

    I like the top ones with the BFG's on them...

    I'm old school, not crazy over the "Big Rim Look"...

    I do like the chrome ones also, they do look good on the camino...

    There not as bad as some of those 30" ones, not sure what size they are but the fit/look nice...

    I still like the old school look of the other ones though....

    I just did the same with my truck, the older all seasons are about half worn out and don't grip the snow good enough anymore...

    So I had to buy new tires, so I bought new steel rims and some meaty traction snow tires...

    Now I can plow again and not worry about blowing the tranny trying to move snow piles...

    Speaking of snow, I'm on my way out again, we had 6 more inches overnight...

    The rims in the latter pics are fine, but I prefer the ones in the former pics.

    The Iroc's are 16x8 0 offset and the slots are 15x8.5 on the rear and 14x8 in the front. I also have the 14's to match the back.

    Cool

    I'm sorry but those I really don't like...

    The 16 inchers are good, but I don't like 30 inchers...

    Just my 2 cents from an Old School Guy...

    Ya I don't mind 16 or 17 inchers...


    It's the 30 inchers that this Old Schooler doesn't like...
