Opinons of the look im going for .....

So ive posted before about how im going for the expendables truck look real dark sinister aggressive. Now Im also putting my own touches I really like the look of the nascar rims and yellow lettering tires so I was looking for other peoples opinion.

I have a nice Flat black painted truck too. I wouldnt say its the Expendables type cause I have some chrome on mine, wheels, bumpers, accessories.

I like the USWHEEL one. But thats just my opinion.

IMO the USWHEEL is the better choice, The other looks to much like something from a european style automobile, Audi, Saab or something like that.

US Wheel Black Daytona

Not sure if you've seen them, but the black Daytona looks alot like an actual NASCAR wheel right down to the red stripe. Doesn't hurt that Summit is giving them away!

Its a 1955 Swb truck. I basically paid summits rent this month in all the stuff I got for it.

IFS from TCI = total cost involved?
Aod from TCI
340 306 from Ford Racing

I will probably be painting the truck myself well prepping and my Dad painting.

I have to agree with the others so far. I dig the look of the expendables truck EXCEPT for the wheel and tire choice. I'm not a big fan of large wheels on these old trucks.
#1 http://www.uswheel.com/images/catego...r-001_clip.jpg i think would look amazing with a flat black paint scheme!
My opinion... for what its worth!
