Pictures of ARE Trakstars rims

I've narrowed my choice down to either the American racing Hopster rims or the American Racing Trakstar S rims with 17x8 with 4.75 backspacing and 17x9.5 with 5.5 backspacing for my 69 camaro with full hotchkis suspension. I plan on running Kumho Ecsta SPT 225/45/17 in front and 255/40/17 in back.

The price of 4 hopsters is 1088 minus tires and the price of the Trakstars are 1188 minus the tires. The hopster 9.5 inch rim with 5.5 bs would have to be custom made and the Trakstar S rims are only available as a custom rim so that is why they cost a little more.

I can't decide which one I want. Does anyone have pictures of either rim mounted on a 69 camaro? Thanks

1969 Camaro 350, Trickflow heads, ST-10 4spd, Hotchkis suspension, Baer SS brake kit, moser 12bolt

I don't have any pictures but recently decided on the Trakstar S rims. Haven't gotten them yet. I swear I was decided between these two rims myself.
