i too was thinking something other than what was pictured.

i dunno if i like any of them. i mean they are all cool and look nice and all....just not sure if i like them well enough to drop that kind of cash.
i do know that boyd has been doing this thing for along time.
i remember back in HS that he was doing. i graduated HS in 88.
he does have some serious trick wheels though. not sure if he is more into sytle and looks or actually into the whole performance package.
on the cover of one of the for sale car mage there is a 57 chevy that has 18 and 20 boyds on it. the price was 27,500
nice car, but not gonna spend that much on it.

gotta a site for Boyd?

Also, other manufacturers that I'm looking at, but don't see anything TOO appealing.

http://www.centerlinewheels.com

I'm 110% sure I want 17s now, just got to decide on which ones. I'll be getting the wheels and tires, and maybe even a torque converter or maybe a brake upgrade all at the same time, sometime before spring gets here.

I dont really like any of those wheels except those budniks. I like the first ones, but not on your car. I dont like the vette wheels on there either. The vette is more related to a nimble powerful exotic car, while yours is a kind of heavy looking muscle car. Thats just me though.

Me neither Monty. They're nice wheels, AMAZING quality, but you won't see me spending that much. And the SSR GT1s are in the same price league, but I might splurge for them seeing as how they are extremely light, but I'm still liking the Boyds and Vettes more. But the GT1s would be even more exlusive than the Boyds. Hmmmm....... (See attached image, those are more like 18s or 19s because I didn't do the chop, but you get the idea)

Well here is the breakdown. I'm a college student and going with 17s for sure. I've got the wheels listed, the Smoothie 2s and the Vette wheels, and also the SSR GT1s and AT Italia Rivas (working on photoshop rendering).

17" Vette wheels (wheels only on all) - $1000
17" Boyd Coddington Smoothie IIs - $1000
17" AT Italia Rivas (Heavy, heavy wheels) - $1000
17" SSR GT1 (Light, lightweght wheel) - $1500
18" AT Italia Riva (Even more heavy) - $1516
18" SSR GT1 (Same as other 17s) - $1640

So with price in mind, which wheels does everyone think I should go with? I think the AT Italia Rivas look the best but are too heavy to even consider, so with those out I'm thinking the Boyds are best. I'll get some chops up and then attach them in a sec of the Rivas and the GT1s
