    Need Wheels!

    Check the for sale forum.
    There's also Craigslist.
    Tire Rack.com is where most of us go.
    Check out Enkei BBS, just to name a few.

    IMO 17x8 looks the best on bugeyes. Go for a high offset and it will sit perfect without any stupid slammed garbage. I have 17x8 +48 O.Z Formula HLTs and they look perfect. The newer gens look best with 18s but for bugeyes it is recommended to stay with 17s. I would also recommend O.Z products, or look for Enkeis. All depends on the style. Buying a used set of more pricey forged wheels such as Work, BBS or Volk is an option too.

    Are you on stock suspension?

    What tyre sizes are you running?

    This could be helpful for older gen owners, thanks.

    I am stock suspension running 225/45/17 Nitto Neo Gen tires. The setup looks great but I do plan on upgrading to coilovers soon.
