These wheels are made by Knight. I am having these custom painted right now. I got all 4 wheels for $800 which was way under my budget of $1,500. Of the hundreds of wheels I looked at I liked these the best, then when I found out the cost I was super happy!

No problem.. Hmm, wonder why though.. I just tried it again and it still works fine.

You just have to make sure the offsets fit well.

Both of those look good although I like the concave look of the vossens more.

I like the look of the second photoshop you did. It gives your car a very good look. The finish has all of the things you've mentioned your looking for.

I think these would look killer on your car, PQ.



They also make them in a stepped lip version (I have the stepped lip version, but I would have gotten this one if they'd been on sale when I bought mine).

TOTALLY agree! Those are freaking KILLER sweet! Yep...If I had PQ's set up, those would be the ones I'd put on. 305's all the way around.

The Vossens really are looking pretty good. Not sure how concave they can be at 20 inch and on this car.

Agreed. But again, gotta see how they look on a Camaro.

Agreed. But the diamond cut is and extra 680.00. I might just skip the two tone centers.

Cost too much. While Forgeline is still in the equation, I still see NO advantage for a street car to pay that much for wheels. Been there, done that. Tony is really gonna take care of me if I decide to go Forgeline.

305s squared up is my plan if I go Forgeline. I may just do the black centers and Chrome lips. The diamond cut look in that wheel is nearly 700.00 extra.

Yikes. I didn't realize the diamond cut added that much. I didn't get the diamond cut myself. I got the satin black with polished fasteners.

I think that wheel with black centers makes a car look sinister.

Stay on the path.

1. Light weight - don't waste money on heavy wheels
2. Reasonably priced - don't waste money on overly expensive wheels.
3. Looks - find a look you like (that meets requirement 1&2)

Keep it simple

That's my formula. I just need to find out how much the Vossens weigh.

Interestingly enough I violated the first two with my last purchase. LOL
