    wheel suggestions?

    I purchased an 01 SS a few months ago and am looking for some wheels that will set the car off. I was looking for some 18's or 19's and really want to have some sort of lip. I've looked into iForged's Aero and CCW's sp500 but not sure I want to spend $3000 for just wheels. I will if that's the best thing out there but does anyone have any ideas?

    Look good, yes, are they unique, no. With him mentioning SP500 and Iforged Aero's, I suspect he is going after something not as common as the C5Z ten spokes.

    Yea I wanna stay away from corvette wheels. That's what 75% of people put on their cars. I'm just trying to find something that most people don't know about or don't want to pay for. Just trying to find the best bang for my buck.

    thats what i will be goin with brotha ccw or i forged wheels, gotta pay to look good. actually the y2k deep dish dont look half bad actually, just not wide enough for me, my plan is to get a 9" and shorten it to fit 13inch wheels and fit 335's in the back tucked in nicely its gonna be some work, i just want something different than wat others have around here, and no one has that setup.

    You are gonna have to go with one of the 4 most likely, HRE, Fikse, CCW, Iforged. Thats exactly what I wanted, something most others would not pay for.

    I prefer 18s, its more a personal preference on 18s versus 19s though. Those widths would be good, I went 10s up front and 11s in the rear. One suggestion, check the prices of tires for 18s and 19s. There may not be much difference, I really don't know, but the difference from 17s to 18s on tires is quite a bit.

    Yes on the 35 sidewall, thats what I went with. As far as bang for the buck, I really don't know, just shop tirerack and discounttire, search for the sizes and then organize them according to cost.
