    Re: How to Wreck a New Camaro

    This is America -and I will be forever thankful that no money of mine went into such an endeavor - but to each thier own.

    I will never get it.

    Most of us could build a pretty nice old car for what one set of those huge by large wheels and tires cost.
    Amen John. One of the consultants at this week's week-long meeting restores cars. He brought photos on his laptop. He's got a red 67 Mustang convertible. You could eat dinner off of the underside of it.

    Cherry. One of the guys on the team made him say how much he had in it. Nearly $40K. He had somebody do the final fitting on the body panels and paint. He did all the rest himself.

    Oh, and the white 57 T-bird with the removable hardtop. He's got that one, too.

    The same guy that made him say what the Mustang cost noted, "You can't hide money."

    Jeez.

      I think that the consensus here, is that we all can appreciate the effort that someone would have to make, in order to pull something like that off. I guess to some people, it's kind of artistic and like most art, it's function is to elicit a response, so in that case it worked very well!

      Here's my responses;

      I guess that both of those vehicles (if you could call them that) were featured at top speed.

      See, I told you my Camaro could turn tighter than a bus!

      And my favorite, Where's my spare tire?

        Yep, and think about the economics. Somewhere out there, there are a few people who are a "company" and one night over beer or cocaine they decided to build giant wheels. With the thought and belief somebody would actually buy them.

        And sure enough they did make them, and sure enough somebody bought them. Is this a great country, or WHAT?

        I mean, DANG. Anything's possible, ridiculous or not. Anything.

            Now that you mention it, they were! I was too busy dry heaving to think about that!

              That is the worst thing I have seen done to a new Camaro... even worse than the rusty white trash one.

                is it that extreme?
                32 inch wheels, maybe add 2 inch tread.. its like they made a 4x4 truck car.

                I would rather 15 nch wheels and big pouncy 34 inch tread.

                  Re: How to Wreck a New Camaro

                  I will never want those big rim, low profile tires... Not my cuppa..

                  My question... Who SELLS those tires? What are they really for?

                  My flatbed is 16". My old chevy dump truck is huge at 17...

                    i guess the factory 20" rims where not big enough....

                    i hate it rims should really only be as big as they have to be to clear the break calipers. mind you this is only my opinion

                      then you'll hate this picture of a "Chevy truck on dubs"
                      Seriously??? A Chevy???

                      It looks great. And it's a Studebaker.
                      Agreed.

                      I've seen this truck in person and it is beautiful.

                      Those Camaros are stupid. I don't really care for the new Camaro anyway, but it is even dumber with 32" wheels on it.

                        i like that they cut the body to fit rather than rig a lift kit ...ive seen some pretty scary stuff on those cars...cut and sectioned control arms ....saw a malibu with a 2wd jeep XJ axle under it.

                          there was a lifted monte carlo here with giant rims

                          the company that installed it used a 2wd S10 pre-runner lift on it. it was actualy kind of interesting how they set up the suspention. desindes the horrible huge rims
