I see alot of people run them, i have a set off a 2011. Just wanted to know if you have to run spacers or are they just bolt in? And do you use the camaro lug nuts or the camaro lug nuts?
Thanks jon

Not sure about the lug nuts but the rims bolt right up, you can't use the tires off the camaro thou. You will need smaller profile tires

If you need a set a lugnuts, I have a set of mcgards that I ran on mine that wouldnt fit on my TSWs. Lugs and locks, I'll do for 35 shipped.

just a little info i found out doing my own research on the camaro wheels. they are extremely heavy. Also, unless you get 4 front wheels, you will more than likely have a slight rubbing issue with people in the back seat over bumps, etc. (unless you get the fenders rolled).

I am still debating the TSW Nurburgrings (forged and weigh almost 9lbs less than the factory 18's EACH) or going with the factory 19's (love the stock look) i am really trying to balance cost vs performance best bang for the $$$$ as i just picked my car up and am building an ultra light weight stroker for it over the next few months. I can get the camaro wheels pretty cheap, i'm starting to understand why now... They look great, i love that look, perfect match to the G8 but the weight and low profile tire really hurt that choice for me. good luck.

Yea well the reason im so stuck on 5ththe gen wheels is that i have them for free. So im gona just put a smaller profile tire on them and hope for the best.

You can't argue with free. I was going the 5th gen route as well but decided to get 19's instead for the same reasons tony said. But now I'm playing the waiting game until they finish making them!

Stock lugs work fine and with the 275/30/20's in the rear you won't have any rubbing unless you're overloaded or lowered.

I have them on mine with no rubbing and I'm down an inch. They ARE much heavily but look awesome on the 8!

Does anyone know the weight of Camaro 19s vs 20s?

you might be more likely to get an answer on the camaro specific or wheels/tires forum.

Too heavy..sell and buy news wheels/tires package. I bet it wont cost you that much more since you have to get new tires anyway...

Just an FYI, 20" tires are actually CHEAPER than 19"'tires. By about half. The 20s look good, everyone has them now, but they really fill out the wheel wells. They are heavier but that's the price to look good.

I hear they are heavy all the time but never hear how much they weigh? So what does a camaro 20 weigh? What does a stock G8 GT wheel weigh?

Someone weighed them on the G8 board, but the weights are burried in a thread, it would take a while to find. I think it was like 8-10 lbs/wheel.

Just did 20s on the wife's G8.

Youll need shorter tires and you have to use G8 lug nuts for the strange 14x1.5 thread pitch. I ordered a set off amazon to go chrome since the stock lug nut caps wont work as the stud comes through too much.

Just got back from the CCG8CC meet. And wow so many SEXY G8s.

These wheels look perfect on the G8s. Should have come standard or optional...
