Re: Does anyone know what brand rims these are?

Can you suggest something similar that won't cost me $500+ a rim?

Forgelines are more like $1500 per wheel.

Yep. Quality 3 piece wheels are $12-$1500 or more depending on size and finish.

Re: Does anyone know what brand rims these are?

Play around at https://www.tirerack.com/content/tir.../homepage.html and see what you like. I like seeing what they look like on the car.

Here are some cheaper ones that look similar https://www.carid.com/klutch-wheels/...439742704.html
I have no idea what size you are looking for so I'm not sure what will work for you.

Re: Does anyone know what brand rims these are?

Thanks for the advise and the link. I plan to lower a little but I'm unsure what size to go with. Looking for a 5 star possible 17" or even 18" but want to still have some good tire meat. Love the look of the FISKE but not the price, 2nd best for similar look is the American Racing. Here's some examples. It's going on the silver 69 on the right which I'm replacing the Cragar style rims.

Re: Does anyone know what brand rims these are?

James go with a 17" wheel with a 45 or 50 series tire to give you the the sidewall you are looking for. Any taller wheel and you'll need tires with less sidewall... Also be aware that less expensive wheels will have less back spacing (offset) choices. At about $400 and up wheels are not made until you order them and provide the offset you want. For a 1st gen think +6 offset unless you are pushing the width to the limits and you will do fine.

Another place to check out wheels and tires online is www.bigwheels.net

Thanks for the info. Yeah I think I'll go with the 17" I want some meat even thought I'm going low profile I don't want skinny tires. Now I just have to find a 5 star that won't burn my wallet. Thanks..

Discount wheel warehouse has a great selection of wheels. Purchased Foose knuckles, 17x8 for $220. each. shipped. I get a lot of positive comments. Check them out on the internet. Saw the wheels on Overhaulin a few years back.

Re: Does anyone know what brand rims these are?

Tire selection for 17 wheels is quite limited. Do your homework before buying....

One piece cast wheels are heavy meaning increased unsprung weight which means harsher ride. There is no free lunch....

X2. Look at tire sizes and availability before deciding on wheels. I like 18/19 better than 17. Better tire selections.

Yeah, those Foose Knuckles looks nice and I like that they come in a 17" that will give me more room for more meat. Any pics for what they look like on a Camaro?
