Hi peoples. Though I do love my factory 16" wheels that are on my car, they just dont seem the have the "cool value" they once had to me. Soooo...I was thinkin of doing a wheel swap. I thought about 17" svt thunderbird wheels for a lil while, but $1200 is something that i can only dream about. So now I'm thinkin about some G3 SHO wheels in chrome. I think that would look quite nice. Are the G3 98-99 sho wheels wider than 6"? I would like to get a lil wider tire for grip and apeearence purposes. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.

*bing!* another thought just occured to me... G2 slicers in chrome?? Or should i stick with the g3 idea??

gen3's would look SO much better on your gen4 than slicers..i've seen gen4's with gen3 sho rims, and it looks nice. the slicers, ehh...i dunno. it's your call. It's your car. good luck, and let us know what u choose.

I don't know.. The Gen3 SHO rims are kind of plain to me. They look like aftermarket rims you can buy just about anywhere. The GEN2 slicers are unique and original. They were designed in Italy (from what I heard) so that adds points right there. The Gen4 slicers are cool too but they are harder to find.

Its all in your personal taste. Kim will change her mind about slicers once she sees my car in person.

Yeah italy is where they were designed, it says so on the back of the rim.

I have gen 3 sho wheels for my gen 4, they look schweet.

From a performance standpoint, the slicers are only 6" wide while the Gen3's are 6.5" I think. Hence, you can mount wider tires on the wider rims (though not by much).

For me, its Mark VIII rims cause they're 7" wide
Sadly, size does matter
