Thanks man, it was alot of planing, two systems you dont want problems with.

Well the other day I said I was 90% sure on wheels, more like 50/50 now. I need to just quit looking and pull the trigger, but it is a big decision.

Im really almost leaning toward this one now, Raceline Royalty.

Either wheel would look really good, you really can't go wrong either way.

Both wheels look good! I can't wait to order a new set for mine. Looking good so far!

Re: sprint_9's 72 C10 Project

I would suggest getting either the whole wheel or the center ceramic clearcoated.
had my centers ceramic clearcoated and its the best thing I have ever done.

I agree with you guys, both look good. I had always envisioned having a polished wheel when I did the truck, but then I ran across the Intro with the two tone finish and was really taken in by that. One reservation I had with the satin finish is if you get that part of it dirty, how do you clean it since you cant just start polishing, maybe the clearcoat suggestion would be the way to go, especially with that finish on the wheel.

Today while going back through Facebook looking for an old picture, I ran across a picture of a truck my dad had posted to my wall. I pointed out that I liked everything about that truck except the wheels, and then suggested if it were my truck it would have the Royalty wheel on it. That was about 3 years ago, and I think my initial impression is the way to go, kind of a gut feeling I guess.
