Trans am GTA wheels

Recommended Posts

I just got my TA GTA in the mail and first thing was the rims and tires, I had an old Z06 kit and tried the rims but wasnt sure they would work well found a solution, the backs from the TA fit inside the Z06 rims perfectly. Now suggestions on keep them chrome or paint them, black or gunmetal.

Gunmetal on the spokes maby? I dont know,taste is very subjective.

Man, it's so good to see these old Made In USA kits being built. Also, it's great to see the 80's GM kits being put to good use. Too bad they never made kits for an 1985 Pontiac Sunbird or a 1988 Chevrolet Cavalier, they're two of my favorite GM's from back then.

In my opinion, the original lace type wheel would lood best. But if those wheels are what you whant, then yes..painted center would look best. Its just me but big chrome wheels on cars with no chrome whatever just doesn't look right.

IMO I would knock the chrome shine down with semi gloss clear. C5 wheels are a popular swap on 1:1 3rd gen f-bodies, just as LT1 and LS1 swaps.

Personal opinion here, but if you are going to run those backing plates in the wheels, dark spokes would completely vanish into it. Use a lighter color (such as a muted silver, like what has been mentioned, or the GTA Gold).

Well I changed my mind and used the GTA wheels, just black washed them and detailed the center caps, good enough for me.
