Bought these slots a few years ago and finally mounted some tires on them to put on my Challenger. Threw two on one side of the Cuda to see how they would look.

I actually prefer the Keystones but the slots are growing on me.

That being said, I really like how they look on the Challenger.

I love the period look of slots. I think they look great on the green car. The one with the 70's artwork looks better with the keystones.

Great looking cars!

the expensive paint job warrants the expensive wheels - NO slots for the 'Cuda twocents

Wow both look great. Are those the Ansen slots? For some reason the US Mag ones that are available look better to me. I do like your choice of the Polyglas tires.

Both sets of wheels look great on your Cuda, but the Keystones make the wild paint job pop even more than it already does! I am going to buy a set of the US slots, and a set of traditional torque thrust wheels so I can have the day 2 look on whatever car I feel like putting them on. I already bought a new set of Cragar S/S wheels, and they are currently on my 71 Challenger convertible. I like 15 inch rallye wheels and Magnums, but I also like the day two look. That is how these cars were when I was a kid. I don't care for bling wheels on our cars, and I don't care for the dog dish hub cap steel wheel look either. It looks ok on someone else's car, but I don't want them on my cars. I do have one car that I plan to run modern 17 inch wheels on, and I am going with Year Ones 17 inch Mopar rallye wheels for this car.

Custom painted car looks better with the Keystones to my eye.

Really wanted slots for the Demon, but couldn't find any narrower than 7" when I was looking.

Keystones on the drivers side, slots on the passenger side! I have done that before with Cragars and slots, sometime you get a few confused looks... eek

The slots look cleaner and less busy.

Keystones, never a fan of Slots on any car. Keystones makes the custom paint really pop, plus they were good enough for Mr. Sox.

The very first set of aftermarket wheels I bought were Keystone Classics. I always liked them better then any other wheel. I never cared for slots back in the day but they have grown on me some. Slots always looked on the cheap side to me.

I like aluminum slots (they're what's on Kayse's Dart) but with the wild paint scheme on the Cuda the Keystones look better. twocents
