Wow I just open discussions....now Tony can you just clarify that a little bit more.....I look at your signature pic I see a lot of shiny wheel there....it looks like chrome but could a very nice high polished wheel....true your car does not have a lot of chrome besides bumper & trim pieces.....I think the Father & Son car falls along the same lines.....but I would love the Iroc wheels a little more if the manufacture broke up that spoke by blacking out the recessed area in the center of the spoke......again I love discussions in forums.....

Mine are polished... I"m not crazy about them really, they are 17". Id rather run a powdercoated or satin finish. For Phils car I'd go polished over chrome. But as far as Irocs go, I like the factory 16" ones. You can still get good tire sizes for 16" wheels and fit bigger brakes as well. I might suggest the ZQ8's too. Thats what I ran on my old 78.

Yeah I like the ZQ8's from the Sonoma/S-10 line. I have the ZQ8 suspension on my Sonoma, and I thought about putting those rims on my 'Bu, but they are looking a little tired and there's a few dingers on the lips as well.

I do like the IROC wheels with the Satin trim on each spoke..

My pick was 17" Polished Coys C-57's:

For some reason my son likes the Chrome IROC's. I hate to override him, since it is his car. I feel like I have better taste though.... :lol:
