Hey guys, I'd like to run some prostar front runners on the street, would a 15x5 with the Sportsman Fronts still give the small front runner look if I got like a 26x7.50? I dont wanna run the 3.5 rim because its daily driver and I don't wanna bend the rim or anything. Thanks


Ps- maybe someone has pics?

Nice wheels!!

Years ago they made a wheel called the "Road-Star" that I thought was one of the prettiest triangle holed wheels out there! The triangles were wider then tall sorta deal so they were proportioned differently then the others.

I don't know if it is still being made or if they changed it's name or what, b/c I haven't seen the name for quite a while??
