    Old wheels on a 4th gen

    Anybody out there with old style wheels on your 4th gen f-body?
    Something like an american racing outlaw or a 50's style smooth wheel.
    Looking for something with the drag/ hot rod look that is safe for the street.
    Bogarts are the closest i have found, but appear to be strip only. I need them for a daily driver.
    Pics are helpful. I will post up some of what I mean from older cars later.

    I don't think old style wheels would flow well with the looks of a 4th gen. But that's just me.

    I'm tired of the stock look and want something that stands out from the crowd. I like the drag wheel look, but its a daily driver so they have to be streetable.
    I'm open to suggestions, 16 or 17s would be best.
    Polished, chrome-maybe, or black painted.

    What about Torq-Thrust IIs? Modern-classic that ALWAYS goes well with 4th-gens.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    I'd love to go with pizza cutters on the front of the 02...

    I used to have 15x8 in the back with 15x3.5 polished solid Centerlines on the 67. That was for racing.

    Cruising shoes were 15x7 (70's Monte Carlo) and 15x5 (67 Impala) Rallyes with flat caps.

    Those snowflakes would work good on a 4th gen bird, but not a camaro. Since they were pontiac bird wheels exclusively starting in 71 to begin with. So they are kind of known as pontiac wheels even though these are a redesign of sorts.

    I do but they aren't digital (from the 80's) and I don't have a scanner. Sorry.

    I also (at the time) had Moroso drag springs in the front. I couldn't get my fist between the pavement and the cross member on the sub frame.
