    Oe deep dish 18's or 18" Ruff racing rims? Help!

    Okay so I have narrowed it down to 2 types of rims. I attached a picture of each rim to the thread.

    First is the Oe deep dish c5 rim in black machined lip?
    These wheels fit perfect on the trans am correct? Has anyone had fitment issues, spacers etc. ?

    The other wheels are the ruff racing 278's black with chrome lip.
    I have heard these rims don't bolt up right? but seen a bunch of t/a's with this rim if you have the rim can you let me know?

    My t/a is burgundy and I plan on doing the ceta bumper so I want the black rims just on the fence about which to pick could anyone with c5 deep dish, or ruff racing 278's post so I can make a decision.

    I REALLY like the RUFs.

    I like the idea of going with an aftermarket design wheel, not an aftermarket OE copy wheel like the C5. It stands out more, and is "different".

    Plus I think the RUF is just a better lookling wheel in general.

    I would say Ruff since you can get a decent staggered fitment and the vette wheels look cheap and generic.

    No it looks good. There's a local guy who has black ZR1's on a burgandy, and it looks cool.

    Voted RUFF. I have seen GTOs with RUFFs and the wheels really pop with the way they are designed IMO.

    That C5 wheel looks too much like something you'd find on and old RWD rice and no not a nice Supra TT a cheezy old scool non turbo RX7 from the 80's maybe a old 80 Supra or 240 SX.

    Go with the RUFF's! I have the triple chrome plated R944's in 19's all the way around on my trans am and they are a hit at shows and on the streets. I just didn't want to be the same no offence to anyone here but everyone has the 5 spoke wheels found on mustangs, f bodys and vettes..but thats just me, mine were a perfect bolt pattern they bolted up great!
