Wow, those are some large wheels on that car. Although not my prefered style, that is the general aggresive look and fit that I am after.

Thanks for posting!

I knew you'd like it ;)

I like them too! They're BBS wheels and I think they're taylor made to fit the 5 lug pattern. I wouldn't mind having a pair of them puppies :D

I'd probably powdercoat the center black though.

Yesterday I looked at BBS, HRE, Boze, and of course keep comparing all of those back to the Intro Pentia that I first posted. The HRE wheels take about two months to make and are about #1,200 per wheel! The BBS are awesome, but they don't have anything in the retro kind of five spoke I am after. The Boze wheels are super sweet, but go no wider than 10".


Decisions Decision.

Yep, I have bounced much of my wheel fitment ideas off of him. He spent just under $8,000 in wheels and tires.

Yep, except as a direct result of the Christmas present (oh, about $30,000 plus), I don't have the extra Jack I need to get the stuff I want!:r

She told me last night that she still loves her C5 (and me too :love )

Are those BBS wheels on the blue Corvette the same that are used in Trans-Am? I think the whole center is removable if I'm not mistaken. So, how much do they go for? Has anyone seen someone try to fit five-spoke ROH wheels on a Shark? I know, I know... more questions than answers.
