    Default Help me pick out some new wheels

    I need suggestions for new wheels.

    The Draglites are a good choice since they're light, shiny, have a nice dish in the rear (and they happen to be in 99% "like new"). I'm just ready for something different. A few years back, I gave my dad a set of 14x7 aluminum slots that I could get back. I also like the thought of 15" Cragar SS's. I really like the thought of Chrome Steelies and Baby Moons, but the NHRA 3" studs say nothing with a center cap. Am I thinking too small? 16", 17"? Any thoughts & suggestions (or photo shops) would be greatly appreciated!

    Now, rears are 15x8 & the fronts are 14x7


    Super crappy edit! (with random black spots included )

    Dark grey or black five spoke may look good as well.

    I have given this thought as well. What I've been trying to find is an online wheel site that would let me upload a pic, then "virtually" install different wheels on the car. No luck yet.

    What I'm wanting is a set of dedicated track wheels/tires and a set of street wheels/tires. The DOT slicks are proving to be too expensive and soft to tear up on the street and some front runners for the track would be nice. Some BFG's are a much funner choice for having street fun. With so many choices, I just don't see any reason to buy another set of the same wheels to accomplish this. It would be nice to have some variety.

    I had the Weld Wheels on my Camaro and always liked them. But there is nothing like the Cragar SS wheels. I had them on a couple of cars in the 70's. I had a 92 S-10 that I had the Cragar Street Stars and they looked really nice.
