    I threw my blackwalls with on stock wheels back on my car yesterday to see how it looked, I dont like the look of the whitewalls because the fronts are too low profile for me. (bought the wheels used came with the tires).

    Also the whitewalls are coming delaminated from the tires.

    Until I can afford some better white walls Im trying to decide wether or not to run the blackwalls.

    any thoughts?

    personally I lean towards the whitewalls on the car, you could always pick up a set of portawalls-then you can change it up...

    White walls, and maybe a skirt out back.

    I'm a huge white wall fan and I agree with the tire looking too low profile. Nothing wrong
    with the black walls, gives it more of a sinister look. I agree with you, I would run it with
    the black walls until you can afford new Wide Whites. Safer and you can still enjoy the
    coupe.

    The most important thing is you can still drive it and have a good time.

    Happy Trails,

  6. WWs and the spider caps.
     
  7. Gotta agree with most others, for contrast I'd go with Whites. Great lookin' Chevy.

    I love the blackwalls, but you need to drop the front end an inch or so if you run them.

    That car screams for whitewalls. The blackwalls, black wheels with spyders and rings look a bit too much like these black alloy wheels the ricer drivers are running from a distance. I'm thinking a baby moon or stock small hubcap would look better with the blackwalls than the spyders.

    It's screaming for a set of dirt track race tires, or something with that look. Something like the old Winston tires.
     
  28. Im with lasabre59 on this one...Maybe lower a little in the rear with the whitewalls and will change the whole appearance...Nice coupe btw..
