Default Wheel choices

I have a chance to get these at a really good price. the tires are 225/45 17 on American racing 17 Daniel Earhart Special edition wheels.
I have been looking at wheel and wanted to get something that had a little black not so much shine/chrome like the stock wheel but these look tempting?
What do you all think on a RED PT?

Please feel free to use this thread for you own wheel questions and choices as well.

I don't like all the rivets, otherwise I like the spoke design...

i think the stock look MUCH better. not to say you shouldn't buy and re-sell them


"daniel earhart" i read that as the nascar hero the first time, in which case i would have agreed they look great and would make your car go faster, almost as fast as if they were painted red

Thats "kool" I mean I hate them now that I can see them like that!!!

Ok that was a short decision. How about either of these?

Personally I like them however they stand out too much unless you drop your PT. If you were to lower it and reduce the rake, they would look much better, imo.

An example:


Now, to me, THAT looks good!

I see the photo opt kings here! I need that program? What a nice job of looking at things before you do them body wise?

The suspension is being giving some serious thought and consideration. It will be lowered but for specifically for best handling and workable mechanical optimization. So between 1.5 and 1.75 inch if i can get some larger then available rear sway bar to work without going crazy on modifications?
