For your car, Salt Flats all the way. More in tune with the overall look.

Not my fave, but I think the bonny type wheel would suit the look Phillip is trying for.

I have a novel idea, how about original steel rims painted body colour and original full wheel covers. How is that for thinking right out of the box. biggrin

none of them would be my choice!!! Sorry but I like the classic look of 'torque Thrust D's" or Cragar S/S either one looks good on just about anything!! other choice would be "baby moons & trim rings"

How about some VN507's in 17 x 8,

They actually look to be less expensive than the Bonny style VN511 wheels, but a little more expensive than the 501's in 17".

Yes! They have the shiny polished surfaces that accent them more. Spinners look mean.
