    Snow flakes?

    I was looking at getting retro Wheels for my car when I go to car shows seems odd and no one I've seen has done this so I wanna be different! thinking of powder coating black with red pinstripe. anyone know if fitment would be an issue and if there is an aftermarket wheel company that makes them?

    With the auto companies going retro on damn near anything these wheels for me were a way to pay respect to the classic Bandit car that I really want to have one day and still look good.


    It really to me IMHO is a signature item for Trans Ams. You can't put these on any other car and have them look good.

    fiero? They had a slightly different version but I always thought they even looked good on those. They were closer to the GTA rims than the snowflakes though. My dad always wanted a fiero but he was like 6'4 300 lbs and in his 50's so we all just laughed at him when he talked about buying one. Not really his kinda car.

    I had to really look for a Fiero with snowflakes to picture one. I rest my case, Firebirds & Trans Ams should only be allowed to have Snowflakes.
