Can you guys please take the time to resize and rotate these pics you post up here, seems kinda like a waste of everyone's time if we have a thread that is specifically to show different wheels on the car and then you can't actually see them unless you have a 40" monitor setup. If you can't do it, ask!there are people on here myself included who can have you email a full size pic and shoot it back to you reduced in size or whatever quickly.
Sorry to rant I just like this thread but its full of useless pics

18" 2016 Camaro wheels and stock Camaro tires. I had one tire on the steelies that was getting bad, snatched these for $275. I have a mild rub on the plastic inner fender towards the firewall on the driver side. Seems to clear all of the metal, as well as all of the suspension.

My 2012 Heron white 9C1 on 19” G8 sport package wheels, they look better on the Caprice then they did on the G8 IMO. Car is lowered on stock SS sedan springs..

Great looking combination--welcome to New Caprice forum!

This has to be a Middle East car, considering it's left-hand drive--what else can you tell us? Interior shots to make all of us jealous here in the US, please!!!

Thanks Eng.bill :mrgreen:
i am here from 3 years :) and interested with your posts & advice of Suspension " PPV strut shocks 2012-2013 + 2014 PPV front sway bar is Done"

Yes this is Middle east version with LHD , Caprice SS , actually it came with 18" GMH wheels " Same as Holden WM series 2 , it does not come with full featured like Caprice V in Aus " in middle east like Holden Caprice Base not V but with 6.0 L77 "

but i upgrade Exterior from USA + AUS like Door handle , Chrome mirror , PPV Grille , 19 wheels
Exhaust Came silent same as PPV & G8 GT , but now put G8 Kooks headers & kooks xpipe with Chevy ss 2016 mufflers "VF Series 2 Bimodal (OPEN all time) "
Middle East version no engine Oil cooler so G8 kooks headers fitted without problem .

interior pics attached old from dealer and i found photo of my car with factory wheels 245/45/18

Welcome, bonaparte!! Nice ride. Looks like a 9C3 with leather and a selection of colors for the interior. Interesting that they don't provide an oil cooler for a Middle Eastern car.

Oil cooler only came from need for Patrol cars to sit idle by side of road low filled with non synthetic fleet oil that has millions of hours on it and then go 100mph and back to sitting a few minutes later sir....

Same thing was going on with LT1 caprice back in the day, corvette didn't use one even on Grand Sport models just use quality oil and you are fine...
