what wheels do you guys like
« on: September 12, 2011, 04:28:23 PM »
so im looking at getting new tires at the same time im thinking wheels. i was looking at some foose wheels and well not sure if i want all chrome or black with a chrome lip. also 18's vs 19's. what do you guys think? here is a few pics of the ones im considering. im also told that foose wheels for our offset i can only get 8 inch wide so i was thinking 255-40-18 or 255-40-19 nit sure your opinions are welcome and encouraged maybe if one of you are photo shop savvy you can put them on my car and post it as im not very good at photo shop

Do you still have chrome look inserts on the car like: door handles, hood ornaments, etc?
If yes, I would go with first rims and 3rd rims as runner up.

Round ones of course! Just thought I'd beat GJ to the punch... :slap:


I have some MODA's. They aren't anything fancy or ultra lightweight but for $59.00/each I could not pass them up. If I recall they were this price due to being a close out. I went with 19's (8.5" wide) because to me they seem more appropriately sized to the car but that is a personal decision. I have been running Hankook's for about 2 years now and they are a definate improvement over stock.

1. Speed Chrome
2. DF-5 (polished perimeter bolts)

I like his Ascot (lotta bling) and Knight (old school drag rod vibe) too.  My faves though are:   http://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/f114/000486-weeds-57421/

Are you fixed on the Foose wheels? There soo many other brands out there. You can buy forged wheels for the price of those wheels. You can try BC WHEELS, J LINE WHEELS, and FORGESTAR and even CCW. All of the wheels are custom made to your likings. Size and offset.

I am a Bacon Lover ,just don't know how they would Mount on car. the 3rd from top "Foose " would be super to keep Clean. The only thing is with so Many other wheels out there,your paying for the Name more then anything $$$$$. Shop around you'll find almost the same design at a lower cost and be just as happy

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

sup im selling my 20" rims, letting them go for performance upgrades lol they are 20x9 in the front and 20x10 in the back, you would think that they rub but i have had no problems whatsoever with rubbing or turning. (keep in mind my car is not lowered). they have about 90% of thread left and there are no scrathes or dents. they were Bmw lx4 rims but they had different caps so of course they switched to pontiac. letting them go for 2k but will take offers. thanks
