Motoroso is a start up company based out of San Diego that aims to fuse enthusiasts with fabrication shops and re-sellers. I can go on and on about what they offer, but I'll spare you.

Instead, use their search function for inspiration. It's a fantastic library and a great way to view a collection of vehicles all in one place.

For you, DJ, it's a great way to see different style wheels on 1st gen Camaros.

Check it out!

They ever get into trademark beef with Moroso?

The red with 5 wide at bottom was what I initially had in mind when you said you were in the market for new wheels. I think your body/paint needs either wide spokes or muted finish.

I might only drive my Mustang 200 or so miles in the next 4-5 months. Should I add a can of Seafoam to the tank to stabilize the fuel I have in there since the gas will be sitting quite a bit, or do I risk having issues with doing this? Or will it not matter if the same tank of gas is used for 4 months, just sitting in a hot Arizona garage?

Sta-bil storage is what I use if something is gonna sit much. It's probably overkill for just a couple months but gas sours much more quickly these days.

Sounds good. I see 8oz of Sta-bil called "storage" is $4 on Amazon. Looks like the Sta-bil "protection" is slightly more. Both cheaper than Seafoam!

The red with 5 wide at bottom was what I initially had in mind when you said you were in the market for new wheels. I think your body/paint needs either wide spokes or muted finish.
Not offended (dissent is the point of the exercise), but admittedly a bit puzzled.

I'm 'wed' to bright red and chrome because that first picture is my car. It's not a mockup of what I'm trying to accomplish - it's the actual vehicle parked in my garage. Which is, needless to say, extremely bright red with quite a bit of chrome. I have to keep that in mind when trying to marry it all.

As for the 5 spokes - just absolutely hate 'em. They look cheap and boring and done 100 times over. I'd keep my shit rims over them and I can't stand my rims at all. A 'lot of wheel' look is what I have and what I'm trying to get away from. Don't want the wide spokes.

And really, the first grey Camaro in MIA's 4-car set has what sure look like Forgeline ZX3S's on them, which are exactly what my buddy put on his. Compare those to the first US Mags I posted and they're virtually identical with the exception of the lugs around the outside of the rim. When I sent a bunch of options to him to look at, those US Mag ramblers were what he picked because of the same reason; he thought they looked just like his. The 3rd and 4th wheels (including the 5 spokes) are polished chrome in their own right. The 2nd is gold and I'm not putting that on a red car; it would make my eyes bleed.

So I guess I'm just a bit puzzled as to the massive distinction you see here. They're actual photographs as opposed to animations so that's going to make them look better. Moreover, those cars are just nicer than mine. Those are $100K rides, at least (well the 2nd and 4th may not be; hard to tell based on just the cosmetics). And with those forgeline rims, you're going to approach $6K on the low side. I'm just not going that route.

That said, I am moving away from the chrome a bit because I think I can incorporate the more satin/brushed look just fine into my silver SS stripes. Those stripes only really pop silver when the sun blasts them and pulls out the metallic in the paint. Otherwise they'll play very nicely with the darker rims and with the RS grill/lights bringing plenty of black to the party as well, I can get away with a little darker rims.

I think the best option is unfortunately going to be the most expensive and it's a 2 or 3 piece rim with a polished chrome lip and a black or gray matte/satin. I can't do anything like Marcellus is doing - that's just too dark and doesn't fit this car at all, IMO. But with a darker middle and polished lip, etc... That will bring all that stuff together really well (it's what the hockey stripe and first from the 4-set have done). I'll have to kick around to see what the 2-piece guys run and see if I can still do it in budget while not cutting corners on the tires.

I'm really coming around on the Rotiform SNA's and think I could make some adjustments to the finish and get a good look there.

Edit: Wait a damn minute...that's that rambler and looks like a 1-piece rim. That could be right in my wheelhouse. Edit again: Nah, pretty sure that's a 2-piece but probably still pretty doable.

Okay custom guys - I'm running into an issue with 18s.

Looks like many manufacturers don't make an 18x7 rim. They do 18x8 but to get to 7s I need to go down to a 17.

I can get away with going with 18s in the back and 17s in the front, right? That size difference shouldn't create any odd visual cues.

I just really want to be able to put the 7s on front (probably stick with 8s in the back for depth/dimension). That will let me get those wheels back up in the fender wells a bit and improve the look.

Thing is, those cars are all Resto-Mods. I'm willing to bet they have shortened rear-ends, coil over suspensions and rolled quarters.

DJ is working with, iirc, Leaf Springs, drum brakes, a standard rear end and standard quarters.

So those wheels wouldn't necessarily look the same on his car because the depth wouldn't be the same.
