    Options on custom rims?

    I'm looking to shorten my axles 3" when I get my 9" rear. When I do this I will need to get new wheels for street use and I'll also get a set of lighter wheels for the strip. For the street wheels, replicas are out because they dont come in custom backpacking.

    What options do I have?

    I love ccw sp500's and I'm not a huge fan of tt2's.

    Pictures are more than welcome, just looking for my options before I sell my kidney for a set of ccw's.

    LS6 Intake, LS6 VCT, E^2 Catch Can, Hooker LTs and ORY, Magnaflow Cat-Back, 3" QTP electric cutout, UMI adj LCA, PHB, 3 pt SFCs, STB, MGW Shifter, SLP lid and bellow, Free-Mods, Tuned by BlueCat

    Well the ccw's are 2,700. I'm open I guess. I just want to see what my options are. Id love to see pictures on a Camaro. I don't want to run race wheels all the time.

    I plan to do a 15-16" drag wheel and 18" street wheels.

    I have the CCW 505a wheels on my car and absolutely love them. 18x10 F (275/35/18) and 18x11 (315/30/18). I can post pics if you want to see them.

    That would be great! I'm not opposed to the 505s, but I had just seen them more on TAs... love to see them on a pewter maro

    Let me go change my shorts, and I guess I'll head back over to ccw's site lol. Looks great man. Your Berger is gloss, right?

    When I looked at ccw before, this was my dream.



    Everyone hates on black wheels but with my whistlers, blacked tails, and dark tinted windows, I think they would look good.

    Haha I'm glad you like. Yes it is. I had it painted matte and the painter sent me pics of it and I had him strip it all and do it again. The stainless fill in letters really make a difference too. I bought these wheels used with 700 miles on them. They are sort of a one of a kind set because they are chrome. The guy I bought them spent like $4,400 for the wheels and to have them chromed. Pretty nuts. I bought them for a lot less than that.

    I was going to ask about the finish because I thought they only came in polished or powder'd. I was debating my Berger finish too. I may just plastidip it first to see of I like it. I like my tinted tails but thought dark tails looked goofy with a black Berger on some cars.

    Anyone else have custom backspaced wheels they'd like to show off?
