05 stock wheel looks the best
 
i've been on the 05 stock wheels for over 5 years. i've been eyeing some new wheels but i really think the 05 oem wheels are still one of the best wheels (even vs aftermarket) on the lgt.

am i the only one who thinks this? the enkei's and oz wheel look great but something about the stock wheel for this particular year looks really good after all these years. i recently lowered my car and the oem wheels look even better.

matter of opinion. 18" wheels with more spokes (rota gravel type) look better to me.

no doubt its a great factory design but the offset ruins it for me

Yes.:p

EDIT: So I should give this free set of 18" OZ wheels to someone else since you wouldn't want 'em :lol: [/sarcasm]

QFT. The 05 design beats the heck out of the 08 wheels that I have, but the offset is ridiculous. They look skinny and tucked with even a moderate drop.

I'm a noob, but I love the factory wheels. I have an '07, and that was one of the things that sold me on it. I'm not really a fan of any of the other years wheels... ok, ok, the spec.B ones are pretty hot... but living in the giant pothole that is Michigan, low profile tires have burned me…

I've got about 63k on the car, 6k on the engine.

OEMs look nice but they blend in too much even when I painted them.

I'm with you. Love the OEM 5 spoke. Ever since I bought the 98' GT, I said the car would look great with a 5 spoke wheel. I have 2 sets, summer/winter.

FWIW, I have alway's been a fan of Cragar SS wheels. Do you young guy's know what they are ?
