Trans-Am wheels

Hey guys,
Im looking for wheels like the old school trans am wheels. I want them to look rugged and mean with maybe gun metal or smoke color with polish lip. But the only thing is that I need them in 17" because i will be doing the ls1 brakes all around. Anybody have suggestions? Check out samples below.




I like these but they are priceeeee

Re: Trans-Am wheels

I love the way my wheels look with my car but they have to go. They will not clear the ls1 brakes. I have to replace my brakes because i need to know my car will stop on a dime. Safety first. I will be selling my wheels, if anyone is interested please let me know. Pm me or email me at [email protected]com

Re: Trans-Am wheels

How about Newstalgia Wheels, one of our vendors. I just purchased a wheel and tire combo from them, couldn't be happier.

Re: Trans-Am wheels

Hey guys, Im thinking about getting these wheels till i can save up for some nice aluminum ones. I know they are heavy as hell but i need to get this thing back on the road. I like the way they look and might even just paint them gun metal or something. I need to know if they will fit and what size tires i can put on them. I do not like rubber band tires and want to know whats the tallest tires that would fit without rubbing issues.
