Default opinions please!!

so after a complete run around with custom rims i ordered, delay after delay, then excuses etc eyc, i'm again looking for an original set of wheels. Although not original, i have yet to see a Challenger sporting these:

another site member did a quick photoshop, and I think these will look stellar. 20x10 in the rear with a nice lip, and 20x8.5 in the front. Brushed centre with polished lip.

I'll admit they look nice..............just not my cup of tea. If you like them that is all that counts.

well I think I found "the ones" - after I learned the Foose Ascots (above) are $1000 a peice, I went searching until I found these bad boys:

these are about $269-299 a wheel, in stock and I'm just waiting to see of they will do a brushed finish for me.

^ hopefully that changes your mind haha. Not everyone shares the same taste, I like the classic 5 spoke, but EVRYONE has them, be it Torque Thrusts, Foose Legends, Nitrous, Cragar Classics, Mopar Classics, it's just been played out.... I wanted something subtle but not to blinged out,

they do look great on this classic Camero:

FWIW,
I like the 2nd choice the best. Your 3rd choice is nice as well. But I've been accussed of being "old school" in terms of taste. You don't mention who makes the 2nd wheel choice but I do like them a lot. You don't have to spend major bucks in order to get a great look. FYI: keep your stock wheels just in case you need them.

HTH's!

^ Second rims shown is what I ordered. They are Centerline wheels "Lazer", they are going to custom make them, with a brushed center and polised lip.

can't wait for those bad boys to get here.

I guess I'm old, I like the retro look, new design wheels look out of place to me
