Opinions Needed

I just ordered a White SS that was located for me and getting ready to order my wheels and tires so they will be here when my car arrives. I was thinking of ordering the Forgiato Martellato with the classic 5 bar look, but my buddy emailed me these pics from this Challenger and I thought these have to be the sickest wheels I ever seen.
1) Does anyone know the brand and style of this wheel?
2) Give me your opinions of the wheel and what you think they will look like on my White SS. I personally think these would look great and make a lot of people hate on me; which is exactly my goal

Thanks

1) I don't know
2) If you are really asking for my opinion?........I don't like them......not in the least. Guess I'm just too old school to appreciate the look. jmho

Yeah not for me either. Check out the Gianelle Santorini's they are on sale at the moment and I think you can get them in white also. They look better than the ones you have selected IMHO.

Since you asked, I think they don't fit the car in any way other than they might be able to mounted. They don't look good at all.

Thanks all...I guess I like the more Urban Luxury look, than the sport look most are use to seeing. There is so many 5 and 6 bar sport wheels, they all look exactly the same to me. I surfed the pictures of others on here and so many are just look-a-likes from a different brand. This whole process just makes me agg! lol

Define urban luxury. Tastes vary between people. I know I'm a big fan of a bunch of luxury rims as well as sport and classic rims also. I'm super picky about wheels though.

Just have to find the style you like the best and then go from there:

Mesh
5 spoke
6 spoke
wild designs
deep dish/lip
concave
convex
10+ spoke

no thanks.

They seem to be causing disorientation, nausea and even vomiting in whomever sees them. (Showed pic to my wife saying I finally settled on new wheels).

But, the most important thing is that you like them.

ill go against the norm here and say that I honestly think that the wheels look pretty good. Seems to me alot of people on this website "co-sign" on how the trend of the thread is going. If a few ppl dont like somethng, then you will see a whole thread of these going around.

Sorry I can't be of much help b/c I dont know what wheels those are. But I would suggest you continue to research into them and dont be influenced by single-minded opinions of others.

No offence to anyone, just stating what I have been seeing, not trying to start an arguement here

You don't have to do a spoke wheel. I think that mesh type wheel you posted doesn't complement the camaro. I am a big fan of the vip look ( I'm gonna pic who*e it up a bit) my wifes car

I'm a member of the VIP style Seddon and thought about going that route before getting the C5. Love the look and how they roll.

Anyway, back on topic. Those wheels look OK on the RT but I don't think they flow well with the C5, even in white. I love chrome and even on a white car, the chrome captures the white of the body and it just looks right. My .02 cents. As stated priviously, you're the one who has to open your bank, and it's your ride, so feel what you feel if it's real! Make yourself happy, that's all that matters at the end of the day.

I Don't like them either. Honestly, I think the 20" polished aluminum wheels that you can get as a $500 option are the best. I haven't found a wheel yet that I would buy to replace the ones on my car.

wlivingston04 - Thanks for the support. I see already people are hating. Maybe its an age difference, I don't know? When I find out the brand, have them color-matched, and post the pics, guess we'll see then. Maybe its the forum? I'm sure if I post them on cardomain I'll have hundreds of compliments by the end of the day.
I do notice the tires on the RT are too small, so I will correct that on my Camaro.
To those that asked, YES, I will do the exact same set up color combination. Hate em if you will, but I think its gonna look bad ass!

It's kind of weird that you asked for opinions on the wheels and then seem to have a problem when people comment they don't like them. Did you really think everyone would like them.

Nobody is hating on, we all have the same ride, just telling you what we think which is what you asked for. Next time entitle your post "For people who like these rims what do you think"

Really dude look around at other wheels, but if you like your choice than go with it and don't ask peoples opinion on a forum if you don't want negative responses. Toughen up for a hundred bucks dude, maybe the forum is not the problem but those ugly rims you picked.

I'm a forged wheel dealer, and those are so ugly that I'd refuse to sell them to someone.

Just because you asked! I try to be honest
