Wide 5 rims

#1 Post by Robert A. Olmedo » Wed Nov 21, 2018 12:39 pm

Has anyone put wide 5's on their cars? Since my car is not concourse I thought a set would be pretty cool as a second set.

Take a look in 'Outlaw Corner-non stock wheels' several different types are pictured on quite a few car. Kinda nice to have different look every now and then. I believe these are 205's 60 series. KTF Daryl 63 super 90 Sunny SoCal

They do give the car a cool look, I had some on an A coupe I bought once.

I've seen some fake FUCHs do that.
