Guys, I really want some new wheels in the 16-17" range for my Formula. Having said that I would like to consider steel wheels to get more of an old-school look. Now, any old wheels won't do they will have to be black and have some coolness of some sort. Thoughts these on this GTI looked good............. Ideas?
zkhennings could be right, they do look a lot like Diamond wheels. Their web site seems to be screwed up but if you go to the bottom you can see some size options and ordering instructions. I need to see if the offsets and center bore will work but it could be a good path. I really like the old-school look they would give my Formula. In black for sure and I think I would go with the Pro Street version.
The Honda kids I hang out with use these wheels all of the time and pay big$$ for them. But I hear they are relatively inexpensive to order. But yes they all have some wild offset from what I've seen and are usually 8+INCHES wide commonly used on those slammed/lowered hatchback jalopys that call themselves fast because they ran a 17 second 8th mile. Joking aside I think these would look great on a Fiero with the right offset and color
I have (4) 17" steel wheels with summer only tires. Tires are in good shape with 1/2 the tread left. Came off my wifes PT cruiser GT turbo. Same bolt pattern and the offset should work. They are chrome plated but the chrome is peeling in a few spots. Be perfect if you want to strip them and paint them black. I'll let them go cheap!!!. I live on the far west side of Indy about 15 minutes from IMS.
Looks like their wheels have big negative offset's. Am I missing something?
Not sure actually I never noticed that... maybe try some of the non pro street wheels? The wider the wheel the more the offset has to be reduced to fit the wheel without hitting the suspension, but I am surprised they don't have offsets of like at least +30
