Expensive Bling. It would have been cheaper to buy jewelry. Lol.
They look awesome. I have been looking for another set myself so I don't have to keep swapping from slicks to Radials.

Seems like I am in the dark ages with the old rims and everyone else has the newer styles with bead locks. Thought I would go for somthing a bit newer. These are surprisingly light, even with the double bead locks.

I am the opposite. I can't stand most of these newer wheels. Especially, all the black wheels that eventually fade to brown. Give me old school Cragar S/S, Torque Thrust or steelies any day. However, with today's power levels better wheels are required.

Rons Rims will make the Torque Thrust (Newer edition with curved spokes) from 15x3.5 to 15x15 with any back space.

Nice I see they are the older Alumastars but you can buy whatever centers you like if the mood fits. I kinda like some of the black wheels just depends on what they are going on. Bad anodizing can fade quick especially black exposed to heat and sunlight. Powder coated stuff does not do that...
