    I wasn't sure about putting new wheels on my car but I am glad I did. These are the new Rocket Racing wheels in a 15x4 and 15x8. Very affordable and a nice looking wheel. I think my car still has that vintage look with them on.

    Well,I like the wheels,but I am not sure I like them on all 4 wheels of your car. Maybe just the fronts for a kind of gasser look?

    Still, it doesn't really matter-it's your car. You're the only one that needs to be happy.
     
  3. Yea, I think it looks pretty good. It would be interesting to put solid steelies on the rear just to give it that early sixties gasser style. You know?

    Very Nice. The car has a nice look with them on but im not to fond of the front splash pan. I think it would clean up the front end quite a bit if it was off. Just my .02 which means nothing. Still I like it alot.

    Looks Great, thanks for the pics. I have looked at these wheels and wondered what they would look mounted up.

    WOW! You got it right there. They compliment the look of the car perfectly. What was the cost of the wheels alone?

    I like it. I had the 5 spoke front and steel rim rear on my 57 for awhile before swapping to chrome reverse. I think the wheels you chose looks right for the car

    I like!! But then again, I'm a sucker for a 55 or 56 post sans front bumper.

    Looks great. Love the pie crusts...
     
  22. They look great: all 4 matching and everything!

    Personally not a huge fan of mismatched "gasser" look setups as some have suggested. Your car looks great.

    They look good. Not everyone was so poor that they only had enough money for two wheels. Most eventually got four that matched (maybe sort of matched).
