Well I had my RT/10 up on the lift for storage and decided it no longer needed the 19" Purner wheels for right now since I have my SRT-10 and supercharged GTS to hold me over for now. SO, I put them on my GTS to see what they would look like.

You like or no? Please no back patting -- tell me whatcha think honestly. Me, I really like the way these wheels look on the car, and I can honestly say that driving it around today produced more stares and good comments (by far) than it usually does.

By the way, the Purners are 19 inch wheels all the way around. The old BBS wheels were 18 inch wheels. Both fronts were Pilot Sports and the BBS 18 inch wheels had Sport Cups on the rear while the Purner 19 inch have Pilot Sports.

I noticed only slightly more wheel spin with the rear pilot sports than I did with the Pilot Sport CUPS that were on the other wheels. I did feel that steering response (how the car jumps back and forth when slamming the steering wheel from side to side) seems much more mushy and non-responsive with the 19's than they did with the 18's -- I'll have to look into why this is with the 18 inch pilot sports vs the 19 inch pilots sports that I have on the front wheels. Anybody know?

Both sets look real nice. When did you get the SRT?
Earlier this week. Here is the video of it being delivered. I wasn't all that happy that it was an open trailer, but it was only from Northern Cali to Southern Cali.

Yeah, I will probably do that. I had United Wheel Techs come out to my house and fix all the curb rash and damage done when I went off roading with the wheels at the Bragg Smith track -- wheels look new again, all 4 of them for $240!!!

Manny - I prefer the Purners on your black GTS. But it is really tough to beat the BBS for that "Racing" look. Either set is a winner!!

BY the way, very nice garage and stable of vehicles!!! /images/graemlins/thumb1

The CCW wheels look AWESOME...

I like them much more than the others. Especially when you see them on a car coming down the road.

Mighty purdy wheels you got there cowboy!
Honestly, I like the BBS wheels for the aggressive track look. Put those purners on the SRT-10, that would look bitchin :thumb:

Purners look better. That version of the BBS wheel you have is not my favorite. I actually like the BBS wheel that comes on the ACR.

those Purners look like shit!!! send them to me and I will properly dispose of them /images/graemlins/bigsmile on my car that is.
That is one hell of a stable that you have there Manny. Those wheels would look good on any of the cars.
