Default Please help me decide on new wheels (67 camaro)

Getting things dialed in on my 67 camaro and itís time to get rid of the rallye wheels in favor of something that will clear the bigger brakes that I have planned in the future. I want to run 18x9.5ís and 18x8ís I like everything from the weld rts to the vintage wheels work v40ís open to any suggestion. Iíd even be open to a used set. Just wanna keep the price under 2500 for the set. Thanks in advance.

You should be able to find what you're looking for, with that budget.

I understand. With your budget, the choices will probably be mostly traditional fare, though. Any particular style you really like, retro/vintage or contemporary? Those V40's you mentioned never seem to go out of style.

Look at Budnik. They make some nice wheels that are in the same price range as Weld RTSs. I had Budnik Cobalts on mine, which I really liked.

Go with 8s in the front (4.75bs) and 9s in the back (5.25bs). 9.5 are good on 69s, hit or miss on a 67/8.

If there were 4 wheels Iíd probably pick them up Iím having trouble getting what I want before the time I want them by which is 6/5. As it is the welds wonít ship til 6/26 and the v45ís are the only ones that vintage has in stock... I was thinking of just getting torq thrust IIís for the time being but they are more than I want to spend on those particular wheels unless I go 8front and 9rear. Has anyone put 275ís on a 9Ēwide and how would it look in relation to a 235 on an 8Ēwide whee?

Thanks again-

ET has some pretty nice looking wheels that would work in your budget. I like the LT-III myself.

You should be able to get a set of 18x8 and 18x9 TT vn215's or vn515's, for less than $600, from Discount Tire. If they are on sale, knock another $100 off. 235's will fit fine on an 18x8 wheel and so will 275's, on an 18x9.
