I know, finding what makes you happy is hard. I look at other people's choices of wheels and cringe! Yet I know they think they are the bomb! It's all about taste. I really love chrome/high polished wheels that are old school. I've been on EVERY major wheel manufacture's site and none of the spoke to me like these wheels did. Now, I need to save up my money so by next Spring, once our car comes out of hibernation, I can put new shoes on her

A lot cheaper, but you may like them if you're looking for classic style/Muscle car category chrome wheels (my brother has these on his '67):

Click on "Wheels" beside "Home" to get to the Legacy and Legend wheels pics.

I have been searching high and low for old school, muscle car chrome

Specifically, I like from the Legend Series:
"Ultimate 5": http://www.billetwheel.com/ultimate5pricing.html
"Crown Jewel": http://www.billetwheel.com/crownjewelLpricing.html
"Junk Yard Dog": http://www.billetwheel.com/junkyarddogLpricing.html

From the Legacy Series:
"The Slayer": http://www.billetwheel.com/slayerpricing.html
"The Harm": http://www.billetwheel.com/harmpricing.html
I agree- get what YOU want- I LOVE HIGHLY POLISHED CHROME look to painted, coated, etc. Must be a girl thing. I love the Junk Yard Dog wheel! Wish I could afford them myself...a bit pricey but if it's what ya love go for it.

Well with Boyd wheels a lot of what you are paying for is just the name.

The American Racing Torque Thrusts look very similar as well and are MUCH cheaper.

I have Foose Legends which are way cheaper. Of course they're made in a China sweat shop too.

I like the look of the wheels but not for the camaro. I think the car needs a modern style. Of your picks the crown jewel would be my choice .

Yes, they are expensive. That's the downside. The upside is they are forged wheels which = VERY high quality.

OK, I think I've got it narrowed down to the one Boyd Coddington wheel that I want: It's Junk Yard Dog and it's on this Mustang. Absolutely gorgeous!!!:
I think they would look stunning on an IOM Camaro. Hubby knows someone in the tire/wheel business that OWES him big time so I think we can possible get a deal on these. We'll see. If not, we will go with OEM Chromed wheels.
