    Recently i've picked up a set of 20 inch 2010 camaro ss rims and tires. Got them from an old teacher of mine... the kind that drives a 1951 international pickup hotrod to school lol. Anyways, i got some spacers to run the rears, and the fitment of the rears was amazing. My truck is lowered 5/7 i have to make sure the tires dont hit the fender lips at all, and was skeptical at first, but they still can tuck. I digress, but i need to know if anyone has ever ran these on the front. Theres more factors with running these rims on the front, as the wheel hub sizes from the camaro and our trucks are different. Any info is appreciated. Ill add some pictures below of the rears on it. IMG_20170427_141042236.jpg IMG_20170427_141222119.jpg

    I want to do this with the polished version. I've seen a few posts over multiple forums where people have put them on but few details. It didn't appear that anyone cared about the hub size issues but that would concern me.

    I think if I run a thicker adpater I can get the rim to clear the hub. But that would also push the rim out of the fender well

    I had to order some custom made adapters for the front, (47mm spacing for the front) should be here this week. I just can't get over how good the rears look,and fit, especially with painted drums now.

    I have the Camaro SS wheels on my daily driver 5.3 swapped c1500. I used 1.5" adapters all around. I should've gone 2" in back as it is not flush to the body. The front stick out a bit BUT I had to roll the front fenders cause they were rubbing the sidewall. I already had to replace the front tires cause I did not roll the fenders in time and the inner lip sliced my side walls. I only got a 2/4 drop and am happy with it.

    Did the rims directly bolt on with the 1.5inch adapters or did you have to trim anything? @Dgonz

    How did you get your drop? and did you put in a C-notch?

    I have lowering control arms and spindles for my drop up front, and a flip kit with drop shackles in the rear. I did c notch. I wanna see if I can get a the fronts on and not worry about too much rubbing at this drop amount
