    salad shooters done right...TRACK WHEELS

    These wheels seemed lighter than the 5 spoke z28 wheels and I had them laying around from a parts car, I am running 255/50/ 16 M/T drag radials on the rear.and 215/60/16 on the front.

    The look ok but not as good as some weld wheels would but with 75.00 invested in 4 wheels and two front tires including paint and clear coat , they look better each time I look at them.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    To be honest with you (IIRC) the snow flake wheels that your car (Z28) came with are actually lighter than the salad shooters. Not by much but they do weigh less. This is why (besides the fact that I like matching rims - even when I'm at the track) I got rid of my salad shooters and got 2 extra chrome snowflakes to mount my ET Streets on.

    That style and (especially the) color rim with a polished lip does look good with NBM though.

    I do appreciate the comment but however vague situations like this is sort of like pissing your pants while wearing a dark colored suit ...it gives you a warm feeling but...no one seems to notice.

    Only thing I never liked about those wheels on my old 95' was the fact, on one side the wheels pattern goes one way and on the other side the same pattern looks backwards. But other than that I liked those wheels. Looks good man.
