my first pick is the chambers... but i have other stuff i could spend the money on instead of spending almost 200 a wheel ha.
im thinking about M/T classic 2's and getting them poweder coated, that would look pretty cool i think.

Looks like a 15x10 5x4.5 is $133.99
Looks like a 15x8 5x4.5 is $128.99

You say Classic IIs are dated but your still advising him to get steelies??? Haha don't waste your money with ugly *** rims like that. Just wait a little longer til you have the cash to get what you really want.
