Default Who Has American Racing?

My pocketbook has been blessed due to the fact I have grown to like my alloy stock GT Turbo 17" rims. My car doesn't have much (if any) chrome and I like it so far. However I have seen some American Racing Wheels that I can be tempted with. I also like Byode Coddington. if you have any wheels to show off I'm in the mood to dream a little. Gary

Gary, I have MSR Style 148, 17x7.5 wheels on my PT. I like chrome and I wanted something a little different, here's a pic.

Thanks Jody, I've always liked the FX45, maybe subconsciously that's why I picked these wheels.[:I]

That's on my list of things to do but Mother Nature hasn't cooperated. It may have to wait until spring. BTW yellow is the color I plan on painting them..

Hey Gary, I got Boyd Coddington Smoothies on my PT, 17x7 front and 18x8 rear. You probably didn't get a chance to see 'em at the last meeting I attended cuz it was too dark outside. Both these and the American Racing "Cragar look alikes" look similar, but I like the looks of the BCs better, the spokes appear a little more recessed than the ARs. Unfortunately, I took 'em off for winter, and I dont have any recent pictures with them on, but overall, they are great looking wheels, in my opinion the best looking wheels you can get for a PT...fell in love with them since I first saw them on the black and red PT on the cover of the Moss Motors catalog about a year ago. Balancing was a be-atch though...
