If you go with 22s, Factory Reproductions makes them and sells them pretty cheap.

www.factoryreproductions.com (http://www.factoryreproductions.com) I got it through their eBay listing though, I think I paid about $800 for my 20s.

Just an FYI the factory reproduction ones only come in 22x9.

I actually need to ditch my front two 22x9.5's +13 offset for a pair of 22x9 factory repro with the +15 offset.


If you wanna get the ones I got just come to Dallas and I will take you to where I got mine.

You have officially confused me with all the offsets, what size do I need to fit with no problems?

If your car isnt slammed like mine neither of the offsets that Irocs come in should be a problem. I would perfer for my front two wheel to sit in a little more than they are now with the +13 on it now. The factory reproduction 22x9 is a +15 and would be alot better for the front of my car.

Oh forgot to add that the spoke are a little thinner on the factory repros than the U2's. Oasis also makes them but they are higher than a giraffe's a$$.

Just my opinion, but I think you are making a sideways move. Not stepping up to a better wheel, like a billet or multi-peice wheel, or backwards, to something ugly, but sideways to something that looks about as good as what you already have.

That's a damn good looking wheel you have already. Irocs are nice too, but are they any nicer than the Edge wheel? IMHO, no.

Those edge wheels look SWEEEEEEEEEEEET color matched. Think about that before you make a move.

ok i know you're the wheel guy around here but the edge wheel is not and it will never be better than the classic iroc wheel in my opinion.

what he wants is the classic look for his car. The edge wheel is just a knock off from the iroc wheel. I can bet any wheel thats hot right now including some billet ones will not be in a few years unlike the iroc wheel thats been around for more than 20 years easy and its still hitting hard today. I dont think there is another wheel that represents our cars more than a iroc wheel hell they even look better on our cars than the cars they were intended for.

your local iroc king lol

carry on...

Like I say, It's just my jaded old fart opinion of the situation.

I was around when the IROC Camaro's were a new car. I tried to buy one when I was in high school.

You young people don't even know there was a vehicle they were named after, do ya?:D:D:D:D

and every now and then you see them on an actual IROC Camaro.

I appreciate all the comments and suggestions, when I make my move if I make one the new pics will be posted. The color matched Edge looks good,but I dont think Id like to go through the processes of getting them painted. When I started out MODing my IMP I wanted to keep it up to date and still have my MODs to be timeless in a sense, hence the True Flames and other exterior MODs, I plan on drinving my IMP till Im blind and I dont want to be 80 year old head pushing a IMP with a MOD clearly from 2006. But thanks for all of your help.

Wasnt the IROC Camaro named after the IROC race series. if i'm not mistaken IROC stands for International Race Of Champions or something like that. the IROC Camaro was the equivilent to the firebird trans am which was named after the trans am race series

I see that truck everyday down here he has some different rims on it now tho, but I agree with The Firewood will rise again, those edge hype's look good, I had them in 24's on my old car, and they kinda favor irocs but backwards if you think about it....

I wanted those but they didnt make a 24" 5 spoke version. Otherwise I would have had a 22/24 combo in those.

What tire should be ran with a 22x9 +15, on a car with air?

Thanks,
I think he runs a 255-30-22 ''28.1in tall''

since your offset is +15 I would go with 265-30-22 ''28.3in tall'' less stretching the tire at 9in wide.
