This is a question to those of you who are in the know about cars. Why is the general sentiment that the black steel wheels on the Camaro LS models looked upon as being so ugly? I bought a 2012 Camaro 2LS and while I do want to get some new rims and 20" tires in the future, I think that the factory "steelies" are far from the God awefull, disgusting things that alot of people make them out to be. I get alot of compliments on my car and never here bad things about the wheels.

Agreed with this. I drive an F150 and a Mazda RX8, and you wouldn't believe the amount of hate I get from muscle car crowd over my RX8. That's what I get for living in muscle car land, where you see one every block. As long as you like your ride man, don't worry about other opinions.

Because they're ugly. But I don't understand why anyone would buy a V6 Camaro (or Mustang or Challenger) in the first place. All the bloat with none of the go.

Edit: Not trying to insult you (probably doing a good job, though). You like your car and that's what matters.

The current V6 Camaro and Mustang have some of the go at least. Both of them are nearly as powerful as previous V8 versions.

As for the wheels, they're about as nice as you're going to get with steel wheels. I kind of like them.

Fast enough! 323 horsepower is more than enough for basic road travel. Maybe you live in "Fast and Furious" land where you need 600 hp, NOS and neon lighting under your car! Tell me when I would need the 426 hp that is in the V8 SS Camaro? Oh and unlike the vast majority of those who own SS Camaro's, Challenger SRT's and Shelby Cobra Mustangs, I don't live and work just to pay for my car....$750-1000 a month payment and $500 a month for insurance!! No thanks!

It's more than enough in a lighter car, but the Camaro is basically a small yacht. The "need" argument is weak because when do you ever NEED more power than necessary to move the car? You don't. You want it, because it makes the car more fun. And the SS, SRT8, and GT are not expensive (nor do they have $500/mo. insurance unless you have a terrible record). The Shelby is, but it's not in the same price range as the others you mentioned.

Regarding insurance your record isn't always the issue. I've never had a traffic violation and simply because of my age, lack of a marriage, and no children I'm thrown in a higher bracket.

Also sex and your local commute go into account. Men pay more for car insurance.
