They look really similar to the stock rims that came on the original 1991 Dodge Stealth.

Why would want those horrendous things, lol.

Did this stealth concept inspire the 4th gen firebird? Sure looks similar.

Both were inspired by the Banshee concept.

Hey Guys

Well yes and know. I looked laste night arround a little and came over these rims:



American Racing Star Rims, what is very close to what I seen in the Knight Rider 2000 movie just a bit better in my eyes... Here is another picture:


It says in the discribtion only "American Racing oldschool 5star wheels. 14x6 4x100 et35"

I like those alot and I am sure they made 16 Inch cause you can order em that way So what did you guys think, anyone has a set of these on the car and could tell me more about those?

Also I came over these here:



So that is also a very nice rim....let me know what you guys think and you might could tell me more about those rims

Lawrence

PS: The Dodge Stealth was based on the Banshee concept. Notice that the rims later looked totaly different in the movie

In my opinion, they look cheap and tacky. I wouldn't even consider putting them on my car.

Roub Louisell has the rims on his banshee from the early 4th gen Firebird, wow, not bad either. I thought about the 99 Pontiac Grand Am Blade Wheels, they are 16 Inch as well and pretty close to what I am lookin for:



I do not see anything else that realy looks nice, the Firehawk Rims are, bud how much are they ?

How the **** are those close to what you are looking for? Lol
Your rim taste is odd, dude. At least you don't want 26's. lol

I'd go for some 18" C4 ZR1s or C6 Z06s.

That is a rather odd taste in wheels.. They seem really 70's ish.

To each his own though. If done correctly I can see it looking nice.
