Hard to go wrong with chrome. What styles exactly do you like? Bullitts, saleens, cobras?

I have deep dishes in the back. I love them. I don't have them in the front. It's probably just that I'm used to what I have, but it looks strange to me when there are deep dishes on the front. I don't think you can get deep dishes on the front in 17's. But, with 17's you can stagger more.

They almost look like they should come with those tires from factory with how high they sit stock.
