PIC OF MY NEW 'GINO' 509 CHROME RIMS

There are my 'Gino' 509 20" chrome rims I just put on. I was looking hard at the Foose One Piece Legend rims, but saw these and liked them better. They have a sharp angle running down the center of each spoke similar to the Foose Legend rims. However, these rims have a deeper dish with the spokes sitting further back in the rim and it gives the car more of an aggressive stance. It also has rivits around the outer perimeter of the rims. I did away with the offset rims by putting the same size rims all the way around with Dinali XL4000 series 275/40 Z rated 20" tires. Now I can rotate my wheels which will give me longer tread life. As for handling. They stick to the road like high performance tires should. As far as cornering. Haven't got into some really sharp curves yet at higher speeds, but I have hit some a little hard and it does appear to handle just a tiny little bit looser than the Pirelli P 0's I had on it, but not enough of a difference IMO to make me dissatisfied. I'm not going to be racing it in the Indianapolis 500 anyway, so they will work fine for me. I purchased them in Charlotte, NC at RimTyme. I don't think they have an official web site, but you can try a search. Price...$1,200 and some change for the rims and the tires. Excellent deal! Here's a pic.

I can't understand it either, but to each his own. As long as it looks good to them I guess that's all that matters huh?

Yep, you're right, but I have to recover from forking out the bucks for the rims and tires first. I love the lowered look of the guys on here who's done it.

The comments go both ways don't they? To each his own and that's what makes the world more fun to live in. It would be a pretty boring world if everyone drove blue cars, wore red shirts all the time and lived in the same color houses.

I know, I was just messing with that guy because he always talks crap about black wheels lol. I remember when I got my Mustang back in 2005 I wanted black wheels and my dad told me I was going to get tired of them after a while. Now all he buys are black wheels for his cars
