Default Opinion on wheels...

Sorry to make one of these threads , but I need some opinions. I have a nice set of 20x9 Nascar Daytona rims I have redone on my truck now. Love them, but they are a bit big for my taste. Still look good on the truck IMO. I've got 2 new tires up front, but need to replace the rears soon... Probably run about 300 bucks.

Or...

I saw these on Ebay. I'm a sucker for nice vintage wheels, especially a staggered set. These are a turbine style wheel, probably made by Western. Need a good refinish, but I can polish them, and paint the insets. The set is 14x7 and 14x8 -6 offset all around. Can get them for about 275, and I have a BRAND NEW set of 205/70r14's on my stock steelies. Literally, only about 500 miles on them. Could mount them up on there, should look pretty sweet, and ride better, get a little lower, etc. Not going to bag my truck at all, so the offset should be just flush.

Opinions?



Here is a nice set redone.




And finally, here is my truck in its current state, with my 20's on it.

I personally like the wheels you already have on your truck right now.... IMO 14's are just too small.... But to each their own...

^^^ See now I feel that way too most of the time. I personally get tired of the harsh ride with the 20's sometimes and throw on the stockers, and usually I can't leave them on very long before I feel too boring lol. I think these could look pretty badass cleaned up though. Never thought about them looking like Wantabe's, but I see it. They look a lot like Rota Shakotan's too.



Anyways I'll be keeping the 20's also, just trying to decide if the turbine wheels are worth the pickup.

That's the plan if I get the turbines. Still undecided weather I should pick them up though.
