Boyd Coddington. It's like the Junk Yard Dog wheel. I liked the JYD better but it doesn't come in a 9.5 wide rim.

Re: What wheel do you like the best? Pole!

Between those 4 I'd say Smoothie but did you check out the Junk Yard Dogs?? They are by Boyd as well. I think the lines where the bottom of the star hit the inner wheel look smoother. I just ordered 18x8 18x10 for my 69 $1283 delivered.

Re: What wheel do you like the best? Pole!

With your paint scheme (skunk stripes), more of a classic wheel like the V40 will work IMHO.

Boyd just came out with the JYD that looks just like the V40. It's not listed yet. I've talked to Greg Coddington and he's going to get me some pictures. It stinks because like I said it doesn't come in a 9.5 wide. Only 17x8 and
17x10. I think if the JYD came in a 9.5 and looked like the V40 that would be awesome.

V40s. Love the sharp spoke TT-style wheel

Then again, I am a bit partial considering my $10 pawn shop wheels:

Re: What wheel do you like the best? Pole!

I was hoping to use the Street Stars too after seeing them on slck6t9 car but man those are costly. You need to have the right stance also to make them look good like he does. If the car is raked at all I would go with the V40.
