like you said, its your car, more power to yourself. but IMO i dont like it at all. just doesnt look right, maybe a different style wheel it would look better, but not the crabs.

uh, those aren't hub caps. They're Early-'90s era 15" Turbo Dodge alloys.

I think they look dope, you just need to find some 1st gen R/T springs and lower that biatch.

Eh, it'll just prepare your kids for the crappy ride of lowering springs that they'll have on their own cars someday. :wink:

Nah it's a 2nd gen, I doubt it would be that bad.

The "crab" wheels are exclusive to the '87-'88 Daytona Shelby Z's only. So there's a Daytona Shelby Z sitting somewhere without it's wheels.

they came on Shadows too. i think they were the 6.0in rather than the 6.5in. however, mine did indeed come off of a 1987 Shelby Daytona, which was essentially parted out. the shelby rack is in an 87 Town and Country turbo wagon, the intake and such are on my former 85 Shelby charger, and some of the other parts went to other needy turbo dodges. since they (turbo dodges) are my first love, i wanted a little piece of that for my neon. after its paid off, i think a few more T.D. parts might find their way on there...

Sorry but I really don't like them...the copper just doesn't go at all with red and the style has always been ugly to me. They wouldn't be so bad if you left them silver...
