I really like the road race look. Most of the Ford Cobra and other wheels that the aftermarket has copied is getting a little old for me and they're pretty heavy. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have any set compared to my waffles...but when I get rims, I'd like to do something different, but that looks clean and ready for the twisties.

Any pictures of these or other cool race-type wheels on SN's?
Post up other wheels you think are cool and different!

Ouch!!! :santa_wink: I dig 'em. They're nice and light too! Found it on tirerack for sn95.
I have a big "import" influence in my taste. My favorite cars are the EVO and WRX/STi and Mustangs. :)

Post a pic of your car, similar angle as the wheel, and I'll chop them for ya.
Best way to decide how they'll look on there.

OK, try chopping with this pic.

I did check out the wheel thread, but most are the typical cobra, cobra R, FR500, Roush/Saleen, etc. I like the Drifter/Road race style.

I'm ALL FOR a unique look....but I don't like those wheels. Maybe if they had a bit of a lip on them.

Thanks for the photoshop. They look ok. It's not like my favorite wheel, but it was the only one that was a jpeg off the internet that I could attach. I'll try more later.

Anyone else have any wheels they like that are different.

The Steeda Ultralites aren't my favorite. Most 5 spokes look very similar.

Yes, I do like the bbs rims, such as the RK you posted.

Another rim you don't see too often is the SVT 10th Anni wheels. I do like those.
Enkei NT03+M wheel is really cool.
Enkei RPF1 is one of my favorite.

I'll try and find some pics of those.

Here's a bunch of pictures of road race prepped stangs for your viewing enjoyment. There are several different wheels shown, from traditional cobra R's to Fikse's to Bogarts:

Yes the one's in the picture above are Bogart RR10's, that picture, as well as the green car and other blue car are actually the same car, just in different phases.
