Default Best looking chrome wheels for a Black Trans Am...back it up with pics

I've got the urge to upgrade. Getting Strano Springs, and new shocks. Need new Rubber...might as well get some new rims. If you have something you are proud of, show me some badass options for a 02 Black Firehawk. Preferrably Chrome, deep dish, CCW, FISKE, iForged, or C6 chrome motorsports, or somthing different. What is the best size 17, 18, or 19" How wide in the rear. What are the best looking options? Thanks!

Well out of the CCW, Fikse, and iForged you mention, none come in chrome unless you get them coated elsewhere. CCW may chrome them, but it isn't cheap.

Aesthetically 18's and 19's look the absolute best IMO, iForged or CCW's with a rolled lip. Function wise you can't really beat a 17, and if you're going with 17's, go with Fikse. A deep dish 17 with a rolled lip looks funny, Fikse's look nice with a stepped lip in 17's. You'll have quite a few more tire options not only in regard to compound but also price.

Here is my black WS6 with 17x10 and 17x12 Fikse FM/10's with the TechniPolish finish on the centers. It's an old pic before the QA1's and adjust ride height and a few other misc. mods, but you get the point...

Haven't seen them on a black Trans Am, but have this picture of them on a black Camaro.




CCW sp500 in 18" with Strano springs if I remember correctly. I think the car looks perfect





CCW 505A




CCW Classics




Torque Thrust 2's always are a winner






IForged




Bogart




Stock WS6 wheels widened to 11" rear

These are the ones I like best other than the HP Evo's. Can't go wrong with any of these.
