Default Smoothie/moon wheel examples and dimensions

I'd like a hot rod look on my cruiser, and want some red smoothie rims with crome hubcaps and possibly whitewalls on the tires. I'll probably lower just the front of the cruiser, and use bigger outer diameter on the rear wheels and wider rims.

Does anyone have example pictures and dimensions?
I like these, (in bright red):
3006-16 WHEEL VINTIQUES STAINLESS STEEL RIBBED HOT ROD STYLE TRIM RING FOR 16" W

I have these on mine, they are home-made, but I get 10 times more compliments than I ever did with alloys!

Sorry for the poor quality iphone picture

They are 16 inch VW wheels as found on the New Beetle, Mk4 Golf and the Jetta/Bora. The hubcaps are VW baby moons for Beetle up to 1967 and Van up to 1971. You will need 5mm spacers at the front to avoid rubbing on the front struts.

There are always some on the 'bay, just make sure that they are 16 inch wheels. The instructions for fitting hubcaps to them are attached them are attached. Also attached are some colour options!

HI there thank you for fitting instruction over got some 16" wheels and tyres ordered some spacers;

CNC machined alloy 5mm WHEEL SPACERS Hubcentric wheel spacers made from ALUMINUM PCD: 5x100 HUB 57,1mm

did you fit them on rear wheels too and can you order clips on there own I found baby moons on eBay don't think they come with clips.

I want too lower my car which kit did you use would you use it again or would you go for another way.
I love the green wheels really pop out against the black car!
