The issue I'll run into cosmetically is that I don't have those big, sexy Brembo discs or anything. I'm running a pretty basic disc setup in the front and rear drums, so I need to have a fair amount of wheel in there to keep what are otherwise pretty ordinary looking hubs from being overexposed.

I think both those Santa Cruz models you showed me and the ramblers do an okay job with that. Not perfect, but not so much that the first thing you'll notice are the ugly old brakes.

You can always upgrade your front disks and calipers later on to give it that extra cosmetic look..if that is something you are into..I don't think it is that expensive but could be wrong..I am different and don't think rear drums are that bad looking..they never really make me think damn that's ugly

Yeah having big disks and the bright red Brembo or Wilwood calipers is cool looking but it isn't really a deal breaker for me if I see a car that doesn't have them

If any of that makes sense

I think you should consider an updated 5 spoke look like the Foose Nitrous.

Definitely would be good on the budget.

Not a fan; they look pretty similar to the ones I have.

Not looking for the 5-spoke and don't like those 'flourished' edges and stuff.

Though I think I'm definitely leaning towards the one you quoted; that's the US Mags Rambler. The more I look at them on the car, the more I like the way all of that works together. Nothing obnoxious but nothing too boring or run of the mill either. They make a black set that I'd consider because it might go well with all the black on the RS front and the tires, but man I don't think I could risk that without seeing them on the car first.

Wrote the name on a card....sure enough, MHT. Right where I'd been dinking around in the morning. He says he's done some custom wheels and such. My mechanic is a shade-tree mechanic that does great work (slowly) and has re-build a shitload of classics so I love the guy, but he's also an "I know a guy" kind of dude that wants me to talk to his buddy about wheels because he's a wheel dealer or something. I think I'll just stick with Plaza Tire and their guy because if he can get me that price from MHT, I know they'll back things if they don't fit, etc...
