 I'm glad the tricks did not involve missing internal doorhandles....

I agree with Carl.  Black rims, in my experience back in the 60's, was used when the full wheel cover option was elected.   No trim rings, gives the strong muscular sleeper appearance.

Although my 66 is not an SD, I may very well face the same decision this summer after my car is painted.

         The Fawn "pops"   makes car look "special"    The black and Aztec especially with trim rings is BORING    Aztec w/o trim rings looks better

I vote Cragars! biggrin I put those on everything...... always look good.

I think we need shots with out trim rings as well.

I'm leaning more Aztec now of the choices.

But in the end it's what appeals to you, doesn't matter what we want. 

Run Aztec 1 side and Fawn the other, see how long it takes people to notice..winkbiggrin

Dude you are making life difficult. I like the white letter on the light coloured wheel more than I thought i would, and the Bronze with no rings looks so tough. Decisions, decisions, I think you need 2 sets of wheels, change to suit your mood.
Yeah I know, no help at all........

Both look good. My opinion is red wheels, black side walls (maybe redlined) no beauty rings. But that's my opinion and your car.

Aztec with no trim rings look great. The trim rings and light colours make them look like rally rims from a distance.
