Which Wheels?

Checkout the link below to see the two different sets of wheels I've had on
my car. Lemme know which set you guys (and Kate) think look best. Nevermind
the tires as they're going away next spring, probably for either a set of
Firestone Indy's or Bridgestone Potenza G009's.

The top is a set of Centerline Convo Pro's and the bottom is a Western
Wheels copy of the Minilite Sport.

Re: Which Wheels?

Well, the top pic is so dark I cannot tell anything about the wheel.

The minilites give the car a Trans Am race car feel. With the Boss Side
stripe you are on your way.

The Convo Pro's look good.

Re: Which Wheels?

Vote for the top set. The bottom set reminds me of those plastic
looking wheels I see all over the place, and I'm an old chrome
reversed or mags guy. The 5 spoke fits in with the mag style and is
closer to the era of the car. But, go with what you like. That's why
my 65 has the Vintage 40s.

Re: Which Wheels?

Gotta be the minilites. You must be giving up on the Trans Am theme
even to consider the Centerlines.

guess.
