    Yeah baby more chrome, mmmmmmmmm! They look a lot like the American Racing Torque Thrust wheels my dad has on his hot rod, I really like that design because they are easy to clean. Here's a thought about the lug nuts, go with the stainless steel one's from Gorilla. I had a set of regular chrome lug nuts on my rims and they were hard to reach , they ended up rusting back in the lug recess. I bought a complete set of Gorilla stainless steel lug nuts for my rims for $104 at Summit Racing, it was worth it though because now I don't have to worry about taking a Q-tip with wax in those holes trying to clean them. Just an idea, keep up the great work............AMY

    Thanks for the tip! I was considering the Torque Thrust, that's why I went with these G.M. rims,don't ask me why but i like to use G.M. accessories when I can. I think it gives it a kinda custom/stock feel, or maybe I'm just funny!!

    I have always loved the look of TT wheels so I think those would look sick...whats the price and size on those babies? Where can you get them? If they are significantly cheaper then TT then I might look into those.
