I've attached a few pics I tried to take of the powder coated camaro wheels I have on with 255-45-20 nitto tires.

doing this from mobile browser and not using IMG codes.

for centre caps I ordered a set of replica Chevy caps from China as well as replica honda ones and Frankensteined them together. about $10 for 4 decent looking center caps.

DAMN that looks good. I think if you color match the mudflaps it'll look sick.

Maxtierney, got more pics and/or a link for that New Aero Performance (NAP) Rear Polyurethane Spoiler? Interested in mounting something similar on my 5th gen.
+1. Tried looking too, can't find it.
Sorry for the late response. I not on the forum regularly, so I tend to miss a few posts.

New Aero Performance is my company/business. I designed and CNC'd a limited run of spoilers, to help support my Ody hobby. Buying two sets of coilovers, wheels, tires, brakes, LED upgrades, VCM muzzlers, etc. can be pretty expensive. 😂

I "retired" in 2018, but I did make one for a friend, last month. There are a few Odysseys out there, with my spoiler installed (from Hawaii to New York).

Here are some customer pics (and a couple of my own).

I've been running staggered Camaro SS staggered since 2013 on my 2014 (summer equipped only here in Canada). I was debating on tossing the rears and going with a square set when I came across some 2019 Camaro SS. I thought I would give you an visual comparison. Excuse the use of flipped pics - I've done this to try to make direct comparisons more easily. I added a straight edge against the face of the tire to demonstrate how flush/poke they are (fronts in particular)

Background - I had 2012 (or something) Camaro SS 20s - polished aluminum
fronts 8x20 245/45/20 offset 35
rears 9x20 275/40/20 offset 40

now I have on: 2019 Camaro SS 20s - painted silver
fronts 8.5x20 255/45/20 offset 25
rears 9.5x20 285/40/20 offset 39

I thought these would be good for people to review to decide if they wanted the newer style or older style before they buy. I haven't decided if I'll stick with the new style, or go back to the older ones. I like the finish of the older ones, less busy, and like the flat face. Also the poke of the 2019 is a bit much. Though the reduced wheel gap and meatier tire is nice.
I have Airlifts in back, and they are important when I load up and haul the family around - but with the additional width of the 2019s - it is critical - I rubbed the shoulders of the 2012s without Airlifts before, and don't think the 2019 would tuck in at all - it looks like the ridge at the underside edge of the fender would be the first contact.

Excuse the lack of finish - the old wheels aren't clean - were just on for photos, and I had already taken my center caps off (with Honda stickers that have discoloured a bit). I'll be figuring out what to do for the 2019 center caps, likely looking for larger H stickers as they look to be about 10-13mm larger if I recall correctly.

Let me know what you think.

Update:
I was wary of the larger/wider rubber, in combination with the 1/2" wider wheels (front & rear) as well as the lower offset in front. I am getting rubbing up front well before full turns - - which could be manageable - but I am getting rubbing on compression (front & rear) - often enough that it is bothersome around town - entry to parking lots, speed bumps and such. Though these are low speed, they cause me to cringe, but they aren't hazardous, and relatively low speed. But I have concerns about when I rub at highway speeds - going over large dips in the road causes it, or I have to be careful when things lean on acceleration loops at interchanges. Overall, not as comfortable, thinking about what is going on, being reminded of the problem. I have the Airlift pumped up to 20lbs, and will be pressuring up for when I take my fully-loaded summer vacation trip trough the mountains in a few weeks.
I'll be punting these wheels after this summer-driving season and going to a 8.5" square 2012 Camaro set, with new rubber that I can rotate. I'll sell a set of 4 - 9" rears to a Camaro guy who has happily burned off his rears and is looking for fresh ones, or wants 9" 275s all around.

Hopefully my pics and comments of my experience is helpful for others.
