opinions please on these wheels

I'm still trying to decide what I want for sure for wheels on my 68 Lemans. I was looking online and found these Crager magnum 510 wheels. I really like them, they kind of look like the Rally II wheels, only with chrome and black accents.... how do you think they would look on my red car? They are about $180 each 15 x 8"

Go with whatever you like. It's your car. I prefer American Racing with light gray spokes, but that's just me.

Sharp! I say go for it they would look Grrrrreat on a GTO. Is that the only size available? These cars are kinda limited on front tire size due to the size and shape of the fender. I thought I had plenty of clearance on mine until I saw a small spot where the paint had been worn away.

rims

They really do have that "Rally II" look to them. That's what I kind of was looking for before I decided on the Rally's. They would definitely would look awesome on your '68!

What are you going to do with the wheels that are on there now? I would powder coat them flat black and see how that looks first. I did that on a set on a red Comet Caliente and they looked great.
