    New Look for The Fluffer..MAYBE

    Basically I am contemplating due to extreme boredom (just so I have that statement covered) either bringing my 1994 teal sc back to a modified stock look or a "drift" type look

    Option 1) 99 cobra rims with factory powder coat finish. I think these rims complement the car and give it a stock look. Ive run these before and love them. I'd basically be widening the rear rims to a 9.5-10" leaving the fronts at 17*8 using a 255 front 285 rear (or larger if I can fit which I think I can)

    Option 2) Go with a chrome saleen replica rim. 18*9 front 18*19 back with a sim tire setup as above. Ive had 17" chrome cobra replicas on this car and the teal with chrome looks real nice. Hear we deviate from the stock look...But heck....I kinda like the chrome.

    Option 3) Well ever since I added the flat black bullet 18*9, 18 * 10 rims on my car the "drift" look is kinda on my mind. This would require me to go with a flat/satin black rim combo more than likely 18*9/18*10. Being the teal is so bright I was also thinking of tinting the rear tailights along with the swap over to a 96 hood/lights/header panel modifying the headlights much like Blown38 (Chris) has done. Its a bit more work but I need some paint work and I could do this at the same time. Unsure of the rim just yet just the idea

    I will try to link some photos from threads here to get an idea.

    I like the concave wheel look. Saleens might look sweet in black.

    Put the chrome saleens from your stang on your bird if you have it back.
    Take a picture from all angles.

    Not sure what you mean by drift look. you are not even close to a drift look.

    Let me give you some insight. From the encyclopedia


    With that just widen the 99 Cobra wheels. Seems you like them alot.


    I got into the mood of getting 19" chrome Saleens a few months back. I got someone that was going to buy the deep dish chrome Rs from my blue car.
    Then again I didnt want to bother with chrome I got better things to do in life then polishing up chrome wheels.

    I want a nice set of billet wheels thats where you see quality. But spending mega bucks on wheels and cracking or bending it over a pothole, pitting etc all factors in. And replica wheels just work in this case.

    I'm tempted to pick up a set of 18" that look kinda like those. The price is RIGHT too.

    Black wheels are by far my favorite, but something about it doesn't settle right on a teal car. I think chrome if it was Saleens.

    The wheels that you have on there look good. I'd just de-monstertruckize it and put some tires on it.
