    I've never really been a fan of that style. But having said that, I think that for being that style, these look good on the TA in the pictures...

    I like those and looked at 'em a bunch of times but just no way to justify that much cash for them. They look good on the car IMO. Look like they belong there.

    The ones I looked at are $800 for the wheels. The 1200 is for all the custom stuff bird center cap, chrome lugs, etc.... I can get that cheaper.

    $800 isn't a bad deal IMO for those wheels. I really like the looks of them. The other thing for me was th 17" size. 16's is as big as I'll go on the bird..... I like some sidewall. I almost went to 15's last year but didn't want to fool with grinding calipers.

    Sidewall in a 17 is still pretty big I run 18's and find plenty of sidewall and I've hit a few potholes already

    The snowflakes with the gold centers are on my wish list. Just think they would look great with my NBM paint and tan interior.

    The size is the same as the WS6 wheels so if you don't have a WS6 you would need to add the WS6 bumpers, otherwise it shouldn't compromise the ride too much.

    don't want sidewall for potholes.....want it for traction.

    I get great traction now that I swapped to BFG KDW NT's and my friend had Nitto 555's on 17" firhawk wheels with plenty of grip. I found the factory 16's had more spin.

    I know black w/ tan interior would look great post up pics when you get them on the blue I'm curious to see how they look. I would have considered a set if I had tan interior on my white TA especially if it was a vert with a tan top.

    I though about a turbo or supercharger but if I'm going to spend that kinda money I rather buy a new forged motor with a H/C setup and nitrous. Cost about the same as a good procharger setup.

    We saw a Silver T/a on the Power tour in AL with the snowflakes and at first I thought they were HP wheels but when the guy parked I saw they were Y1 Snowflakes, surprised how good they looked. $799 isn't a bad price for 4 but that does not include the cap or lugs. For wider than 9.5, you can get custom sizes cnc'ed but their like $800 ea. I have pics of said t/a on my facebook but cant get to them at work, will post later.
