Re: brake/rotor advise

My advice, considering your location and your "nothing crazy" intentions....go for the PowerStop CRK5949 Z17 Evolution Geomet Coated Kit. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=10466896&cc=1447573&jsn=498 Plain rotors are perfectly adequate. Drilled & slotted are NOT necessary or even any real ...

Re: My experience with camaro Brembo brake install and stock wheels

Appreciate it. Now we just someone to make a thread about using the 16+ brembos with stock rotors and if there’s a rear rotor option that can work. When you are speaking of 16+, I am assuming you're referring to the brakes on the 2016 & newer Camaro SS, with 345mm front rotors. That thread already ...

Re: Was there a stock alloy wheel?

https://weldcraftwheels.com/ Located in Livonia MI Never have used a widening service--I didn't follow through on these, as I could not justify the cost vs benefit compared with new wheels. Not sure of others that may offer service--I can imagine some exist, but also that some just ship to Weldcraft...

Re: Was there a stock alloy wheel?

We had owned the car for less than a month--this was 7 years ago. I wasn't going to start doing stuff while car was in warranty, but I knew I didn't want the tires, and the Camaro wheels were a compromise, as I would have preferred wider. I eventually did go to an 19 x 8.5 wheel, but ultimately I've...

Re: Was there a stock alloy wheel?

This can have a couple of answers--the production Caprice WM/WN, built as a Holden Caprice, did have an alloy wheel as standard fitment. Several owners have installed the Holden production wheels over the years....as far as I know, the size was 18x8. Not sure of offset, but as mentioned, these wheel...
