    Might look good with a Bow Tie center cap on the 6th-gen Camaro too.

    Re: Anybody else see these wheels on the ATS?

    They look great.

    I was even more interested in the demographics. GM expects the ATS to attract more or less the same demographics as the ATS. Though I was somewhat surprised at the average age of 51 for the BMW and 54 for the C-Class, I typically see younger people driving them.

    I love them, but I'm not too keen on putting heavier 19's on mine...

    My only problem is those are very thin sidewalls....hard to tell from the pics.

    Definitely stick with 17" or 18" wheels and tires (pun intended). According to this press release, General Motors' engineering efforts for the ATS chassis included "right sizing" wheels and brakes to reduce unsprung mass, which in turn benefits handling characteristics.

    The low curb weight also helped engineers optimize performance by not having to go big on components that contribute to unsprung weight, including the wheels, tires and brake components.

    “A heavy car needs larger wheels and tires and larger brakes to account for its overall mass,” said [Chris Berube, ATS lead development engineer]. “With the ATS, its low weight meant we didn’t have to spec the largest wheels and brakes in the segment – the performance is among the best in the segment with smaller, optimized parts that save weight and enhance efficiency.”
    My modes of transportation: CityBus Greater Lafayette, rental cars (usually GM), bicycling, and walking.

    They are 225/35R19 up front and 255/30R19 at the back.
