so I am thinking this wheel for my 1992 white sc.

what do you think

i really like the look of these but the pic of the 35the they offer kinda sucks as I have a white car.

what do you guys think.

I like the looks but they are a little thin at 7.5"

they are a good looking silver painted rim though

I bought a set of the same rims for my winter tires.
They are cheaply painted and mark easily. They took a decent amount of weight to balance too. I'd use them for winters, but thats it imho...

Gotta admit, Cudaz' Eagle 025's, for the same size, would look much better and more contemporary on a white car.

I would like to see a little more lip on the rims, deep dish look for me.

well im torn now. yes 7.5 is too thin.

my other option is the 18x10 staggered bulletin rim i have always liked that rim on the t-birds.. but dont know if I want to go 18 i wish they made a staggered 17 inch bullet rim set.....

all I can find in 17 inch is stock ford parts. so I would have to replace hubs and such.

18x9 looks the best...by far....You need to get your rims from Cudaz....Not to mention you can drive down and get them and save yourself atleast 100 in shipping and they are cast for a Tbird....not Universal like what you will get from Tirerack or the like....I was kinda nervous about 18" wheels several years ago when I put them on my Mustang. There are plenty of cheap tire options if that is your concern. Its the 19" that you need to steer clear of in that case. Lack of sizes and very expensive per tire...
