Here are some pictures of my 19" TSW Chrome Wheels that have been on my car now for the past 1 1/2 years and still look as nice as the day I installed them.

IMO, this set is the best looking wheels for the G8.

Btw, not my car.

I have a buddy with a G8, will 2012 Camaro wheels with 265's all around fit? I wasn't sure if a 265 would be too much for the front. Thanks in advance!

I also would like to know who has installed 2012 Camaro wheels with a tire size that does not rub?

I saw over on a G8 forum that guys were running the stock Camaro 20's with 245/35/20 and 275/30/20 with no rubbing issues with their G8s at stock ride height, idk about lowered cars. I would think you could go with a 255 in the front, but idk about the 265's.

yeah that's what I was afraid of, I guess GM stepped up to 265's on the 2012 Camaro's, as these are brand new take-offs that are for sale locally.

Yeah idk if the 265's work or not, I don't have a G8, just looking to sell my Camaro to get a G8 but the guys that have 5th gen Camaro wheels have said there is no way you can run straight take-offs because the sidewall is too big. It might be worth picking up the take-offs and getting new tires if they price isn't too steep or see if you can get the wheels for cheaper without the tires.

Thanks for the information on the Camaro 20's with 245/35/20 and 275/30/20, as I was just going to try and buy 2 sets of front wheels for my 2009 GT. Now I think I will just go ahead and buy the complete 20x9 Front and 20.9.5 Rear set and install a set of new Bridgestones.

The front Camaro wheels are 20x8 and the rears are 20x9.

Are they the same size for the RS, verses the SS models? I was told they were 20 x 9 on the SS fronts and 20 x 9.5 on the SS rears!
