    Show your wheels 17" only

    I'm fairly new to this site, so if this subject has been extensively covered, please refer me to the link.
    I'm unable to decide exactly which wheels to buy because I have a hard time visualizing how they would look on the car. They always look good just out of the box with no tires or install. Some sites let you view them on the car but I'm not buying that's how they look in real time.
    I want to stick with the original 17" size on all four corners. That's a must.
    Thanks. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

    My absolute favorite wheels on our cars are the TTII's. I don't own a set so can't post any pics.

    Good question. I should have posted that up front.
    Would like to be in the $200-$230 per wheel range.

    I'm not familiar with the term TTII's. Give me more info and I'll google them.

    Torque Thrust II's. Very similar to what whitetrashbird posted, only in all polished aluminum. The street wheels in Curtis' vid are exactly what I am referring to (also, it's a great vid if you have never seen it before):

    yeah i like em now. but i kinda wished i would have went wider in the back so they would be deeper but i wanted to keep all the same size so i could rotate them. the car is lowered 2" all around so the wheels look really good with it. no complaints here. rims with taxes and all was like 900 and some change from big o.

    Wow...that's a good price. The 2" drop along with the 17" looks mean as hell.

    Different car..but TTII's look real nice on lots of cars, esp 4th Gen F-bodies. Never saw the new YO 17" snowflakes on a 4th Gen...they look real good too!

    Nice going Leon. They look real good.
    I guess at this point the TTll's seem to be the best looking wheel to me. I do like the Snowflake and I imagine the gold airbrush with that would be pretty sharp.
    I was hoping to see the Classic Cragar Super Sports that are available now in 17"x"9.5", chrome finish. That's a real classic look and I wonder how they stack up in appearance to the TTll's. The price is basically the same.
    Anyone out there seen them or have a pic ?
