Great dialogue here. Only Berry or Neal could pull this off.

I'll come clean, I'm a hater. I think they look totally out of place except on late 60' and early 70's restorations.
I find Barry's need to hate on deep dish's in this thread offensive.

I dunno. I think bill's 109 with galvanized rostyles looks pretty good.

I think the real issue with rostyles is that people seem to always have them painted white, mounted on rigs with no lift and small tires. They are just way too noticeable in that configuration since the rostyles themselves have a lot of surface area.

When painted a darker silver or black, on 33's-35's and a 2inch lift, they look pretty mean.

Agree with you and sonoronos. Certain LRs they look just right.

They remind me of a Saab soccer style wheel. Kind of funny looking on the later 900's but late 70's early 80's 99s and 900's they look really good.

I always had a preference for NY style. Then one day someone introduced me to Chicago deep dish. I never looked back.

Oh wait. Wheels. I like the deep dish on my D1 better than the boost or castor. I also have a set of NATO steelies with mud tires. They look good.

Wow. Controversial wheels. There is/was a set on Craigslist Birmingham for $100 for a set.

Mangia.
And if I must have NY style, Frank and Angie's.
