Question What are your Favorite wheels?

Hi All,

Out of all the wheel brands out there, what is your favorite one that you would most likely buy for quality and price?

Re: What are your Favorite wheels?

it's pretty hard to beat a nice shiney set of Cragers. Those were the desirable wheels when I was growing up so I'm still partial to them.

Re: What are your Favorite wheels?

I'm partial to the wheels made by Budnik, I have 17" Anvil 5's on the '69 and they provide a great ride with 45 series tires. I also like the old school American Racing 200s both polished and natural centers and most vintage old school wheels.

If I ever end up with a 5th gen I'm not sure what I'd put on it...

Re: What are your Favorite wheels?

IMHO, you just can't beat the clean look of a set or rally wheels on a first gen. However, if I did go with aftermaket wheels it would have to be the torq thrust D's
