Just saw a trifive on Justacarguy blog with the gasser wheels.  Not my absolute favorite but do seem to suit the cars curves.  Its weird, I look at it and like it, then I look at it again and think its fugly.. ?

Good news, got my lower control arms and mocked everything up. Used my chevelles torq thrusts to test fit, seems 4" backspacing while not ideal, will work. Will be ordering the wheels I had on order 2 days ago. Pics and more info on my build thread. Letting this one die...

I like the salt flats too but I just don't think they are right on the 55. Now when I build a 32, definitely!

Crossed my mind. I looked at some pics though and I didn't think it looked right. Would look good on my chevelle though...

They’d look better on a black car though?

Agree but thats the problem. I am having trouble envisioning what would look best. If only I had $40k, I’d just keep trying until I found the right ones.  but, my wheels are ordered now so I better like them.
