    Previously, I was running 15 x 7 Rally wheels with Derby caps and white letter T/As:

    Picked up some 15 x 7 smoothies from Rally America with Baby Moon caps and B.F. Goodrich white walls while I was driving through Fresno yesterday:

    It's much more the look I'm going for. Thoughts?

    Thanks! :bigthumb: I wanted sort of a "more '50s, less '70s" look to my car.

    Thanks, man. It has a 350 in it making something like 375-385 HP... It's quick as hell until the aerodynamic issues start happening. That happens at about 50ish. :rofl:

    I love the old boats, but they have the aerodynamics of a tool shed. :rofl:

    the new wheels look great.

    Only thing I would do now, is throw a red accent on the wheels. Maybe a center cap design or something.

    Other than that, it looks absolutely amazing.

    Yeah, I've thought about that. Maybe going with a '56 Chevy center cap and painting the area around the bow ties red and leaving the bow ties silver, maybe paint them white? :dunno:

    May have to do some Photoshopping to see what looks good...
