I know I have been bombarding the board with topics and questions, but I am still at a loss, and I really need your guys help. I have found some rims, however I cant find pictures of them on cars, and I was wondering how you guys think they would look on a black 1995 impala ss that will be lowered 2 inches all the way around soon. One thing I am afraid of is having a wheel that looks too...ricey? Or maybe too much like that of a fwd car, you know what I mean? However, I dont want a super busy looking rim. I just hope these are "big" enough for a b-body. If it helps any I want to run 20x8.5-9.0 in the front and 20x10-10.5 in the rear. Here are a few, and I am very open to suggestions. Thank you so much.



I prefer the first one personally.

Thanks for the replies guys. I am not saying it is only gonna be between these two, just throwing them out and seeing what you guys think.

Finding rims is usually a marathon. Make sure you have the $ or know exactly when it is coming (like at tax return) so that you can be ready when the time is right. Plus you can wait on the right deal and jump on it when you have the $ in hand.

No doubt
. I need to get money, but I am more worried about the rim itself. That seems the hardest for me.

Gotta co-sign that. I think it was the same person that said "you can find better".

Worst case scenario if you settle for less. Your out bending corners with the homies with the wheels you settled for and out of the blue, another whip bends the corner with the wheels that chop like suey. You get molded and wish you stacked more chips instead of getting some off the shelf shoes that don't even fit your whip right.

Worst case scenario if you copped what you like? Nada. I think it's safe to say, more than half of the homies settled for less and got the happy meal instead of the real deal.

Wheels are like women, they come in all shapes and colors. My theory is get what you like from the get go! Be selective, never settle.

Don't cheat yourself. Treat yourself.

Your friendly neighborhood E-Dogg. :D

...that's right, still rockin' my 9 year old wheels! :eek:

Btw, I would love thos budniks too, I have always liked your rims, and the other guy with budniks too, he lives in texas I think...

Sorry if I piss anyone off, but feel free to ask our opinions in as many posts as you wish. that is what this forum is made for. I promise you that you will go thru at least 5 more choices before settling. There is no greater feeling then bein happy with the rims you choose. Look back at some of my older posts

I went from

16" spokes with white walls
to
17" spokes on vouges
to
18" spokes on vogues
to
20" spokes
to
22" spokes
to
22" spinning spokes
to
Various 22's
to Finally these


Some love them, some hate them.. I won't know until I bolt them up. I saw them spinning and almost shart myself, but I digress

Be patient, be vigilant, watch the haters (ironroad), use this forum to sway your decision and not make it for you and always alway always always always post pictures :D

P.S. ALWAYSSSSS

#4 rox! </font>[/QUOTE]I love them too, but you dont think they look too "small" for a b-body? What scares me is they are an fwd wheel, well I can bolt them on with adaptors, but fwd to me gives me a mental image that this wheel was made for acuras and smaller v6 sedans you know? Maybe I am tripping, but I sure love the pics there...


these are awesome too
and is it just me or are they kindaaa like the 4th wheel posted above? Or am I crazy, and are the silver ones bigger sturdier looking spokes.

That is good advice, thanks
I can see you have gone through a lot of change lol! And I am with you, I am not sure what to think on ur current ones, only because I havent seen them bolted on. That is my problem, I have a hard time imagining. Like I think those concept neeper Moxy's above (number 4) look awesome, but I havent seen them bolted on any car in any picture, so for all I know they could look like ass on a b-body. How can I ever get past that? Should I go to a dealer and see them in person?
