Default Opinion on Wheels

Hi fellow cruisers, I would like to get a few opinions on the included pic of some wheels I am considering trading my set for. Please let me know how you think these would look compared to the 5 spoke Empire Wheels I have now. I have a couple spots on mine where the chrome has bubbling underneath.

Thanks for your input,

Bubba

Cool Re: Opinion on Wheels

Depends on what your "Empires" look like. They are pretty darn nice wheels to start with.
I had double-6s on soonercruiser, and they looked great too.

That looks like double 6 if that is the spokes we are talking about.

If the rims you are referring to having now are the ones shown in the COTM competition, I would stick with those. I really like the way they look compared to the others. Just my opinion.

Yes, my car has the Empire wheels now and the ones I posted are 18" wheels. Just a thought I had and wanted some other opinions from you guys. I do like the Empires myself. My car originally came with the plastic clad wheels and they were peeling everywhere. Those went to the dump.

Thanks,

Bubba

18" tires cost lots more and you'll have a harsher ride.
