It depends on the intended usage of the Camaro ... if you want the dragstrip look and do not plan on curve carving ... I would use a narrow 15" rim and a 165X75 series tire. If you are more into a curve handling road race type car ... you would be better off with a 6 or 7 inch wide rim and a low profile tire.
