I'm more of a "mesh" guy, but I like 'em! Very classic look.

I'll be interested to see how the Caldwells fit on an SS. I called TSW about fitment on the SS. I asked about the following wheels,. Mondello, Caldwell, Variano and Indy 500 and was told none of them fit properly on the SS. Yet at least 1 forum member has a set of TSW Vairano's installed.

Yeah... I think I read on here somewhere that the Indy 500 wheels do not fit the SS too.

The other thing is weights. The Mondello, Caldwell, Variano and Indy 500 all weigh about the same as the factory SS wheels.

I'm also curious about fitment. I want them to sit flush with the fenders. A vendor on here told me they would fit, but I'll do some more asking around.

Damn wish I would have read this thread before getting my hopes up. Thanks for the post, now it back to the search for wheels again!

yea when inquiring, they distinctly asked if it was SS, cuz apparently the cadwells won't clear the brakes...
