I like both sets, but you'll be spending a lot of time cleaning the new ones!

Looks good, Stu! Re cleaning, get the Griot's Garage wire wheel brush and coat the tip with plastic-dip to protect your wheels from scratches. Along with a good wheel cleaner, clean up takes about a minute with my FM-10's.

Now, how 'bout lowering that puppy?

I agree. Both wheels are nice, but the car would look and handle much better if you lowered it.

Thanks. You know, it's funny - I longed for the Sport Classics and now that I have them installed, I actually like the look of the Targa wheels just as much. Wish they came in 18's! Oh well....I needed new tires and I came across a great deal that included these 18" SC wheels with practically brand new Michelin Sport tires in exactly the size I wanted, so I couldn't pass it up.

I'm going the hang on to the T wheels for now & thanks for the tips on cleaning the Classics. Oh yea, I agree, dropping her down a bit is definitely a must and is scheduled for this Spring!!
