I always liked the stock GTA wheels, but if you want lightweight how about some BBS wheels for it? Those birds are made for that type of wheel IMHO.

Any pics of them color matched? Sounds kind of neat, like the old COPO cars.

Me too. I've only bought new wheels a couple of times, and then it was pretty much the same wheel, just a little bigger. Like going from 14x5 to 15x7 or something.

I usually like stock type wheels (Rallys or Magnums) or factory wheels that came on something similar. (Vette wheels or Z28)

Too cheap to spring for new wheels ususally, and even if I had the money, there were too many choices.

Plus wheels have always been trendy, people would run out and buy wheels just because they were coll at the time, then have to buy new ones a few years later when the trend changed.

Factory wheels almost always look good in any era.

I love the z28 wheels

Ok I am not sure what that all means in your link but look at the wheels on the Alien, paid $1500 for 5wheels with tires shipped to my door. Fit perfect with no rubbing at all. 18x8 all the way around.
