I think they would look OK but only without the writing on 2 of the spokes.

I figured some people would think they're ricey. I dunno what it is w/ me but I don't like a lot of the wheels US companies have to offer. I've always liked OZ, Volk, Advan, 5Zigen, BBS etc. I want wheels w/ more of a "GT" look.

I like the 6 spoke, something different. Not a fan of the manufacurer name and stuff on the spoke.

I agree. Lose the blue writing and blue valve stem and they'd look pretty cool - like OZ racing wheels.

6 spokes don't belong on american muscle cars. Only 5 spokes,
or twin 5 spokes. You mess with the symmetry of the wheel by
putting different number spokes than lug holes.

And that pic shows a 4 bolt wheel...

It was the first pic of them that I found. They make them in 5-bolt too.

If you want to see what these do to a GTO, check the attached pic. They actually look better than I thought they would. Kinda like a "function over form" thing...

Nice photochop job. Those wheels DO look better on the GTO than I thought they would.

wow, thanks. Did you photoshop that?
That would be me. I found several pics of GTO's so when I got the itch to see what a wheel looked like on the car, I could at least have a better idea than just a picture on a website. Usually I get contracted to do deviant things to my co-workers using Photoshop, so this is a pleasant change... ;)
Glad you liked it!

I'm seriously thinking about the billet ralley II wheels. I would really like to see them on the car first.

I would love if someone could manipulate a photo of a black on black goat with a set of these on it. both 17" and 18" would be nice.

Tougegoat. I agree 100% on your opinion on wheel choices nowadays. The import market has a much better selection for sweet rims. I am hoping Volk/Rays and other wheel manufactures will make wheels to fit these cars without having to special order them.

I thought about a set of those for my old goat. They are more pricey than any of the 19" rims for the new goat. They wanted $500 a rim, not including center cap. Damn! :mad:

I agree, I don't like 6 spoke rims, they just don't look right. 5 spoke or there are some nice seven spokes too.
