Well, Looking for some opinions. I was pretty much set to get Year One Snowflakes for the GTA, but recently OER wheels has released one of my favorite OEM wheels for 3rd Gen's (Ronal R15's that came on the 91-92 Firehawk), Wondering what you guys think. Either way they will be a silver wheel with black recesses but wondering which you think looks better.

I like 'em both, but have to give the nod to the snowflake style.
As an alternative, how about the GTA/GNX style wheel?

They don't make that wheel in 17X9 as far as I know. If I wanted 16's I'd just keep the GTA wheels

Unless you find 17" GTA wheels, they are not going to stay

I know HRE makes an 18" replica (maybe not exact, but the closest I've seen) - not sure if one exists for a 17".

I was just scouring the web for some GTA's for my new-to-me Cutlass to replace those 14's.

Yeah those aren't GTA wheels but they are fairly similar except the center piece, the lip and the offset. I think I have 4 extra GTA wheels that are in so-so shape if you aren't looking for cherry.

I know they are pricey, but I always liked the look of the Fikse FM5s when Lingenfelter was putting them on their 3rd gens.

Exactly! Besides, when I apply the NotMyMoney exchange rate: 1 Nick Buck = 50 US dollars.

These days I think you have that exchange rate backwards
