    Always had a thing for 5 spokes...Z06 Wheels seem to be a dime a dozen on F-bodies...

    Out of the three, #1 for sure. I really don't like standing out in my car too much so #2 is hell now, And I usually don't like black rims unless their sitting on a black 2006/7/8 ZO6.

    #1 is a polished aluminum right?

    I vote 2. Chrome and the color of your TA will go together nicely IMO.

    What's your budget?

    For an inexpensive wheel, the Sportmax 962 (18x9.5) is pretty stylish. Kinda has a Fikse FM5 look... just too bad they don't come in wider widths and better offsets.



    Of your options... I'd have to go with #1. I like the Z06's but they're just too common place now (IMO). If I were to go the Z06 route, think I'd go with the silver or slightly darker anthracite finish.

    Good luck.

    #1 looks great. The rims above are even better. Seeing factory rims on a diff. car drives me crazy. Not trying to offend anyone. I just decided on ruff 278s for my vert and found the post pics threads here to be very helpful on how a rim looks on a f-body and the sizing issues etc. Just my 2 cents....

    Something about #1 doesn't sit right with me. It's either the wheels look too small or the design just doesn't flow well with the car ... I've got 18X9.5/10.5 Chrome Z06's on mine so I'm kinda partial to them ... There's a reason they're so damn popular, even though new styles have come out, they're damn sexy (!!!!) and I don't believe I need to make my car look less just because I don't wanna be on the bandwagon (or can't afford high dollar CCW's or Fiske's) ... they may be a dime a dozen but our cars are rare enough these days that it's a refreshing sight for others on the road

    For that color of car, I agree, a black would def. not suite it. A polished or chrome is the way to go ... but after all is said and done, it's your decision

    IMO something Zo6 wheels on a TA just doesn't look right to me
    Plus it just seems like a ton of people have them, granted I think they look ok on camaros but not the TA.. I prefer something that not everybody else has, which is the reason I saved and bought FIKSEs and not the FM 5 or 10

    If it was only between those two I would go with the chrome over the black...

    Ditto.

    Z06's are everywhere, and IMO they look like crap. They should NOT be run on 'Birds, they look even worse on 'Birds than Camaros.

    Agreed.

    Here in the DFW area, there are so many Z06'd F-bodies... if you owned one, you'd probably lose it amongst the sea of other Z06'd F-bodies in the parking lots. Just walk and click the keyless entry till you find it I guess???

    Nothing wrong with liking something... hell it's your car after all but on an "Originality" scale of 1-10, they're definitely a solid "1" these days.

    *the opinions expressed herein are simply that... opinions and everyone has them*

    I agree with Stuntman and Simmons

    ZO6's are too cookie cutter just like TT II's.

    JMO But since you have a Unique Colored Fbody why not find a Unique wheel.
