In my eyes, rotors, calipers, tires, and paint all play a huge role in how wheels look on a car. The R3 wheels tho look like something that belongs on a rednecks truck. Personally, I'd go for classic Cragar wheels, those ways look good to me.
Well in the R3's defense it is pictured with that chrome bead lock on there. Whichever set I get are going to have a black anodized bead lock on it for the track wheels but not for the street set.
I have Cragar SS wheels on there now and love the look. Here is the issue. The front is getting a new front suspension. Not sure if the wheel will keep the stock orientation due to different spindle and hub set up. May have to go with a custom offset in setting up the wheels with a good track and scrub radius and maintain clearances. The rear is a whole other problem. Actually same problem. The rear will have mini tubs, a BMR torque arm suspension with relocated coil overs and watts link and a shortened Ford 9" with a slightly different 2.5" axle offset. So in order to fit a 13" wide tire in there I'm going to have to probably go with a custom wheel offset. I doubt I'm going to find some off the shelf rims with the perfect offset for my application and no wiggle room to just get something close.
Here is the R3 wheel with a black anodized bead lock in the style i'm going to get. I think there are 5 different styles of bead locks with multiple options on the finish.
I will need bead locks for the track wheels and want to run the same style rims (without the bead lock of course) for the street. I've run two different set of front and rear wheels at the track before and hate the look.
