    I love my steelies and caps, but the wife has offered to buy another non stock set of wheels for my sedan. Any opinions or ideas appreciated. Any photoshop's GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance Shane T.

    p.s. I can email ahigher res picture if someone needs it, my photobucket account won't seem to let me load anything other than this size.

    Yeah I always loved those too. I think Scott Sullivan did 57 many years ago that ROCKED with a set of D's. I'll see if I can find some pics.

    A set of polished American 5 spokes would be super.

    This may happen either way. I want to run some cheaters and a more "vintage tire" on the front.

    That looks just like my old 57 that I had before IO went to that vacation spot called Vietnam. The 57 I have now was built around the wheels first and they are American TT, the car will be painted black with flames. Everything after that is icing on the cake.:cool::cool::cool:

    It's just flat hard to beat the looks of those Americans on a black 57. They never get old an they never get dated like some wheels.
     
  21. I have a set of 15x6 American TT D's on the front with Universal Pie-crust blackwalls and 15x 7's on the rear. Looks good on the 57 Sedans. You need a little high stance to give it the best look. Black always looks good with S/S Cragars too. The car would look good with some white steelies on Cheaters for rear and some 12 spokes up front also. Just a few vintage ideas.

    I like it just the way that it is. If it was mine, just get a pair of 15 8s steel out back and put the dog dishes on them.
