    Of the three choices, I thought that the sandstone wheels looked the best, but I also think torque thrust wheels would really stand out!

    For YOUR 3w, the Halibrands all the way. Does any of us just have ONE pair of shoes in the closet? Why not have an extra set of wheels and tires top dress your ride accordingly to the event your attending?

    The red steelies and beauty rings just make the car stand out more to me.

    Some people feel that red wheels are overdone, but I still love em. The other wheels you pictured look great too , but if it were my car the red ones would be on it.

    I think the read steelies look best, but that may have to do with the trim rings. The other color might look just as good to me with them. The Halibrands look great and give it a great look. I also would like to see some torque thrusts on it.

    Having said that the margin between is slim. They all look great but that may have more to do with the car than which wheels. Either way is win, win, win!
  18. Halibrands. One of your beautifully subtle cars needs to scream HOT ROD!:D

    i voted sandstone- black with those caps and trim rings would look killer tho
  20. Well gang,I've seen all 3 sets on Randy's 3W coupe,,

    The Halibrands are cool but I still love the red steelies,,I know the sandstone wheels went with the Mercury truck but you still have the red steelies. HRP

    Sandstone, with the red or mags it's just another black coupe with said wheels that fades into all of the other black coupes with very similar wheels. Both looks are great but are so overdone that you might see the same setup 50 time at a major event. Black coupe red wheels with caps and rings? Which one? Black coupe with great looking mag wheels? Again which one?

    Just can't beat the halibrands, the sanstone steelies look classy too. I don't dig red wheels though unless it's on a gray or white car.

    They all look pretty good, but come on Halibrand, that just says Hot Rod.

    You wont find rows of 32's with these. And wont be saying " which 32 with Indy Halibrands". Some people just like what they like, even if its overdone or not. Sbc in 32, has been by some "overdone", but is still what I prefer. Like what others have said, cant go wrong with any of the 3 wheels presented.

    I thought this thread was about men in snappy clothes?! Oh well. I'd probably run the red wheels minus the beauty rings.
