Well on a Nova, I'd suggest either a set of Cragars (probably just the 15's), or a set of the older Corvette Rallye wheels (as they look good on the Nova's/Chevelle's/Camaro's), or even a set of Centerlines.

Or even a set of these Rallye wheels:

Or just check out some of the ones other people have used:

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction,

Where would i purchase the rallye rims? Offline (eck?), how much would a set of 4 cost me?

posted by  Spade

I'm a fan of Cragars.

Same here, a new set costs $610.00 CND at the 'Go-Shop' in town (just another thing I need to save for :wink2: )
