Chaad,
You stopped 15 spokes short of the wheels I thought you had targeted earlier ... , although it is far easier to paint up a 5 spoker ..
They will look great!

These are my Car Graphic wheels, sorry no closeups. 18 x 10 & 12

They are 3 pc units. Never checked the offsets, snagged them on e-bay.

Yeah, that and the cleaning routine should be a lot easier! I still like the Sport Classics, though. Thanks, Garth!

Sorry, I just do not care for the look but everyone is different. I posted a pic at the bottom of the look I like on a red car. The gray could even be darker IMO. Having said that, I have seen a couple red 94 speedsters with the entire wheel painted red and I do like that look on a red car.

-Resetting/timing cams 3x due to lack of manual information
-Ignition issues causing pulse issues, timing issues, fuel problems, & of course, Euro LH to US-LH issues
-& Worst: body shop guy ("best" in Austin) gave me bad advice on removing the side moulding & filling the holes from the DOT-applied side markers & moulding. I was SOOOO mad about that.

Then, grad school. Car had to go, my future at the time showed little time to work on it. Sure is fine looking though huh?? I even saved a copy of those photos from this post...lost most of mine. M.
Sorry to hear that story. Good luck with grad school, perhaps you'll do it again someday. I have also posted a few more pics of your car that I saved from a previous post.

I LOVE those wheels just wish they would fit on a 928 w/o fender mods.

These would look cool on my 78. Kind of a contemporary interpretation of the phone dial.

One of my favorites...


My GTS has SSR GT3's which are my top pick.

Does anyone have RUF rims on a 928???

Here is one with some Fittipaldi Fitti-stars. The center covers are removed for the track.

These aren't necessarily the coolest, but great for OEM wheels.
I didn't see too many of these Design90's pictured in this thread, so there are a few pictures...not great pics, but they'll do...

I personally like the Carrera Lightweights, but the Anteras on Andy's Green Goblin are sweet too.

AT Riva.
Look great and I get many compliments but a tad heavy.
I may remove the center spokes and have them powder coated black.
