Rim choices , check these out!

Have a look at these and tell me what you think,, these are Aussie made 3 piece Simmons FR series rims , cost is $950 AUS for a 18 x 10.
I think they look as sweet as the Fikses and half the price.
Whatya reckon.

Re: Rim choices , check these out!

The Simmons FR's do look good...I prefer the fikses due to a cleaner wheel without all the rivets in there...The rivets in the Simmons FR remind me alot of the the rivets in the ARE 398's I used to sell alot of during the 1990's.

Camaro looks good!

I have to agree with you. The Fikses look better. For some reason the Simmons Wheels look "dated". There was a silver car featured in Super Chevy that has Simmons Wheels on it and it looked good but seeing the Fikses on the red car and on the "Mule" if money was not the object I would go with the Fikses.

Re: Rim choices , check these out!

I like the simmons, by the way blacky I never did get an email from Barry Whites speed shop on the wheels, I talked to a lady on the phone and gave her my address and no reply, I guess there either too busy or they dont want our business, I even told her about the Team Camaro site and maybe they could sell some stuff to some of the members.

Sorry Gav.....I apologize...I should have said Simmons and I corrected my previous post....I'm still at work...Another 11 hour day of Corporate BS and it's been very frustrating the past 2 - 3 weeks.....That's another story...I still like the Fikses better than the Simmons because the Simmons looks like the American Racing Equipment "ARE 398" wheel rivets I sold in the 1990's...Nothing wrong with either wheel I just like the fikses better.
