Hello Everyone! I have been thinking for a while that I should be looking into new wheels for my 84. I have a really great, clean set of Hi Techs with a set of RWL Cooper Cobras that are just about done for. Luckily I ran across a set of brand new coopers from a tire store in my area last year and socked them away for a pretty good deal. So this summer I will be changing over to what will probably be the last set of coopers rwls that I can find without being really far out of date. I know based on personal experience and several discussions on this forum 215/60r14s are going to be as scarce as hens teeth, I am resigning to have to give up the factory look for a wheel that has better tire selection.
I'm looking for some inspiration. I have seen a lot of fastback fieros with great wheels, but I don't feel like they are a great representation on how they will look on a bumperpad. The Fastback lines hold up very well in modern times and by result work well with modern wheels. The bumperpads on the other hand definitely hold their 80s roots strong! For that reason I think the Hi-tech wheels are a great fit for the bumperpad style.
So does anyone have any pics of bumperpads with aftermarket wheels? I asked for red but any will do just fine!!
Thanks and sorry for being long winded.
