    Looking for good wheels

    I have decided not to get the AFS style ZR1 wheels and instead invest a little more in wheels

    I am looking for 17" up front and 18" at least 9.5" wide in the front and 10" in the rear

    what are some popular wheels in the 400-500/wheel range?

    no one got any comments?

    I have found three different wheels, OEM GM Grand Sports 17x11, 17x9.5, CCW 19x11, 18x10 either SP500 or SP505A, and iForged Racing Series 18x10, 17x10 either Evolve or Concept

    I really like the CCW but the tires for the 19x11s is way too much

    the Grand Sports OEM were about 500 less than the others

    any other wheels, in the same price range (about 400-500/wheel)?

    oh I know , and I really like all three wheels,
    I am planning to call John at CCW again and see about some smaller than 19x11s

    and I really liked the iForged but they are really about 200 more than I wanted to spend
    also John at CCW was very convincing

    and the Grand Sports are awesome wheels but it seems everyone likes the knock offs (and I would rather have the lightweight and higher build quality of OEMs)
    and tire cost in the rear is cheaper on a 18x10 (other than Sumitomo 315/35/17s )

    can I at least ask this then, will I need a BFH/spacers/adjustable panhard bar with 10s all the way around?

    sorry guys, beautiful cars, but I do not like the cragar styled wheels on new cars
    they do look great on 60s rides though IMO

    it sounds like you already made up your mind with the ccw's...

    you might as well just save your money and get the rims you really want not just rims that will "just do" for now!

    of course you have other choices:

    bonspeed 1700 for 18's
    ruff's for 1500 for 18's with chrome
    aza for even cheaper but no chrome..

    just be patient and go with what you really want..
