Been playing around with new wheel ideas and I really like the look of the FR500 wheels Shaun at Street or Track put on his wife's car.

Anyone better with photoshop can give me an idea on how they'd look on my car? I only have paint and here's my poor attempt attached.

Would probably go with 18x9 front 18x10 rear. 245/40r18 front 275/35r18 rear.

As long as you have enough rubber on the wheels, it works very well. I think the dark grey car has the set up dialed in best in that group.

Or just to confuse things. Here's some wheels (similar design) halfway between FR500 and 2015 wheels. All have the similar Y shape spokes, but FR500 have 5 spoke, 2015 10 spoke, and SVE Drift wheels 7 spoke.

SVE Drift wheels:

Hmmm, those all look good too. I REALLY like the wheels on the blue car.

Not sure what I think about it having front scoops from a 1970 and side scoops from a 1969 (philosophically more than style), but it looks good overall.

Found the details. It was built by EVS call the "synful" mustang. And those Budnik custom wheels are..... expensive!

Good golly this wheel decision is driving me CRAZY!

Now I'm thinking something like these Rambler U111 would look good.

Possibly go with a 17x7 front and an 18x8 rear wheel for a nice staggered look.



Would look something like this:

Although these are slightly different wheels and an 18 and 19 inch stagger.

Rambler u111 18x8 18x9.5

Not sure why I didn't notice this before. These are basically Eleanor wheels without the center caps.
