    Wheels for my "new to me" SC

    As some of you may know, I acquired a 1991 red SC, nine days ago. It is completely stock. I have been thinking about putting on some different wheels. I have been looking at the Saleen SpeedStar Wheels 18 x 9" wheel - 5 x 4.25" bolt pattern, in chrome. What do you all think of this wheel for my vehicle? Will it go well, or, should I look at other wheels? Additionally, will I have any fitment issues, or, should I be good? See the pics below of the SC and of the wheel I am looking at.

    Thank you, Pierre.

    I think the Saleen wheels look great on an SC. The only issue seems to be they are very very hard to come by. Finding them in stock has proven to by very difficult for me.

    Yeah, that is exactly what I'm hearing and seeing. Demand is high on these wheels!

    I have those exact wheels on my whitebird (see garage photos). They look great. Ride is a bit harsh but corners like she's on rails. I used 1/8" spacers which helped fitment. Super coupe performance.Com is taking orders right now

    Just looked at your garage photos. Vehicle looks very nice, the wheels complement the car nicely. I just saw recently they are taking orders. Thanks!
