    i've seen a few sets here and there for sale on the 'other' car site. along with a few TA's themselves when the car is listed for sale. if i could find a set, i would pick them up too!

    you won't until you fully understand what clean, good, simple, less is more design is all about. maybe its a curse of my profession as an architect. perhaps i should get into wheel design.

    look at it this way, vette rims are so over played that even vette owners are ditching them for a better wheel. wake up people!!!

    putting vette rims on an f-body is like getting the old, ripped, worn and worthless pair of jeans as a hand-me-down from an older sibling. best thing to do is to toss them and get something better.

    im not trying to change anyone opinion of vette rims, rather im stating why i believe they have become the 'crutch' wheel 99% of f-body owners fall back on.

    I'd say 49%. the other 50% of said 99 would be TTII's I fit into both categories at one time or another (zr1's & TTII's)

    I'm with you i don't understand the "vette"wheel hate either,vette wheels are awesome on fbodys,I'm glad a few ppl hate the fact that we love them on our cars,so when they see "vette" wheels on them we will make them more angry & upset....LoL!

    DEFINITELY gunmetal.

    And while I'm not a huge Vette wheel fan, I think the C6 Z's are a good choice, and are a visual upgrade to the car.

    There are only so many custom wheel choices that aren't crazy expensive, which is why those on a budget usually end up with Vette wheels. Nothing wrong with that..... unless they're C5 Z's (the ugliest Vette wheel EVER).

    Not a fan of the lip? The Lip finishes off the front of the Trans Am. As beautiful as the front of the Trans Am is, it looks a little unfinished. The lip from Wings West finishes it off nice!

    lol, if he does it wouldn't be over this thread, it would be over the "post pix of your 'vette rims" thread with pages of vette rims on f-bodies.

    I feel for you SSwt00SS if we weren't so passionate about our cars we wouldn’t all be here , at the very least you've made me relook at the other options, but as of yet I have not changed my mind, Money is just too much of a factor with the other options I like.

    yup, totally agree, I can either get custom aftermarket rims or "replicas"+the tires to go on them and still have $ left over.

    no, i simply see lemmings following lemmings, resulting in the asthetic death of their car is all. once one does it, the rest apparently absolutely have to follow suit...

    i have purposely stayed out of that thread because everyone who has posted rides w/vette rims is a lost cause, not worth the time, and only furthers adds to my case of how boring and over done that style wheel has become.

    hmm... i see your title, ..."vetter rim hater"... do you hate just the rim or the whole wheel? hint: the rim is a "part" of the wheel.. perhaps you're not as much a stickler for terminology as you are "asthetics"?

    I like the gunmetal, but chrome would like fine as well. Whichever you like best, just go with that.

    Who cares what other people think, just keep it in good taste and in your taste and you'll be happy.

    My vette will have ccw 505as because they look better than stock, but my f-body will have vette wheels, because they look better than stock. Why put rims that are worth half the price of the car? I get stopped and complimented every where I go with my vette wheels and I like them. You liking what you have is all that matters. To top it off the price is right.

    I personally buy levis. I'm not gonna pay a premium to look special and unique on a pair of designer jeans. If I wanted that, i'd turn goth. If you do that with everything, you'll be out of a lot of money.

    semantics...



    plus there were not enough space to type 'wheel', unless I were to remove 'official'...
