Need help, looking for a new set of wheels for my 2000 Pewter T/A. Would like to keep the 17" wheel size. Definitely what to keep the 315 rear (or bigger) maybe go with a skinny on the front.

Please help! Visuals are nice too!

Then fikse is what you need to look into, there are not any 17s that look that great but fm10s look killer on birds,or go up to an 18 ccw 505as

I'd go with some fm10's. It'll look killer on your trans am.

Get a set of wheels no one else has. Look at True Forged and IForged and get something different.

Billet street lights are sbout the best looking 17s without the high price tag, i thought budget didnt matter lol,tt2s are budget in a 17 that will always look good on a bird, best budget wheel is the c5dd 18x10.5 all around, just know any great rims are going to cost 3and grand and up for wheels alone, true forged are nice but for that price i would look into ccws, weld rts are nice but run in the 450,500 range per rim in a 17,if he had an idea of what your looking to spend we can give ya better options, also look for members car dr.tran he has forgestar f14s i think but thats a nice wheel for the money

Or hold out and look for a set of fm10s,ccws etc to pop up in the tech classifieds, that will run ya 2500 to 2800 range with decent tires,my fav rims would be i forged aeros, but than again not cheap at all,look in the oewheel thread for c5dd, there a great looking 5to spoke wheel that is very budget friendly, sorry for the jacked up post my phone just adds words in when it feels like it lol good luck with the wheel search

I didnt mean to indicate money was no problem at all. I would spend 3k on wheels, I dont know if I would for a wheel on a street car. I love the wheel though. Then there is always the wife I have to get on board!! Thank you for your help and advice.

No prob,honest if i didnt drive my car as much as i do i would drop some cash for some nice wheels,just my luck though something would happen, its hard to drop that much on wheels, you could put together almost a whole turbo kit for what some of these wheels cost lol,look into the c5dd, they only way i think they look great is 18x10.5 on all 4s,but there about the nicest budget wheel you can get imo,have you thought about trading your tt2s?

not sure what they retail at new, but if these come with rubber (which it looks like they do) they could be a good deal

plus, it's a 12 inch wide rim on the rear which will probably be good for a 335 tire once you wear through those.

Roided thats what i was saying earlier you can pick up some killer forged wheels for a decent price, i mean 23,2500 isnt that bad when you will spend 1600 and up for a budget wheel

BOB i agree, if you look around and wait for sales, high class rims can be found for a good price with tires too. and generally since they are so expensive, the owners take really good care of them.

I'm tempted to get those eBay Fikse's and sell mine! Lol, not really, but those things are a great deal...would look a bit stretched though.
