They look okay from here. We'll see I guess. It's better than the abominations that were the directional three-spoke wheels Pontiac put on the '93 Firebirds and Trans Ams (no offense...)

I just really don't like any wheels that aren't 5 spoke.

That is literally exactly what i was thinking, but I desided not to leave it posted up there so I removed it, looks like they've been repainted tho.

I dont think they look like the vert wheels. I could be totally wrong though.

I think it would be in GM's best interest to put the most expensive options on Bumblebee so when it comes time for the public to buy it...those that want a "Bumblebee replica" will need to shell out more money.

(Probably why the rims got all chromed up)

I swear if they make Bumblebee/New Camaro look like a rap video car i wont watch the next movie. From what i can see those look like "dub" type rims. I hate that crap. I wont have it.

I agree. to me they look like the same wheels that were on it. just the picture quality sucks and makes them look wrong.

if you look closely it really looks like the same car and disk brake looking things to me.

I just blew up the pic and to me it still looks like the same rim style. and the silver thing that looks like a disk brake rotor. but no calipers.

I think that BB is in motion which means the wheels are turning. They wouldn't put some blingy blingy wheels on BB for the movie...

I don't know if Saleen is still envolved or not. But if he is, the wheel thing is his fault. He should be

I really like the size of the dub wheels, I just don't want them all chromed out and blingy....maybe a polished lip with black or gray centers. I CAN'T STAND the fat doughnut tires on a 15" rim....that NO GOOD!
