Default What do you guys think?

I got a new Cool Vanilla 06' PT and was wondering how these wheels will look on it. They are off my old 04' blk PT. I really want chrome. If I can get a set of chrome for a good price I will do it. If not I will be using the same ones again. Maybe I can the spokes painted to match.

Bolt em on, take another pic & post it. I think they will look OK but hard to tell. Chrome is always good but paid for & on hand is good too. That wasn't much help was it?

If the wheels from the black PT aren't chrome, they're close enough. They look good (IMHO).

Thanks guys. I took one of the wheels and set it next to the car last night. It isn't bad. I still want chrome though.

IM not fond of black wheels, unless there on a black car/truck. Chrome looks better on your color IMO[^]

Bigslim,
I'm selling my Motegi DPK's (19x8 w/ +40mm) offset at a great price. Both wheels and tires are in excellent condition over 90% tread on the tires.


$1350 for the set. That's the total price including shipping.
Kevin

Here is a pic of what the car looked like with the wheels on it. Put the PT back to stock when I traded it in for my Magnum R/T. The wheels are the last to go.

Believe me Kevin, I have looked at your wheels more than once. They are sharp. My problem is I already have wheels and spending $1300 bucks on new ones. I also want to spend some money on my Marauder this year. I will keep them in mind Kevin.

Id just use the wheels you have. You know they fit and they're nice. Chrome is ok, but a bitch to maintain and if you live anywhere where there is anything but nice weather, good chance the chrome'll get damaged.
I got a set of Ronal 17x7.5's and they pitted the first few weeks I had em. Most companies have the chroming done by other contractors so quality is always an issue.
