Default American Racing Rim Suggestions And Adding More Muscle To My 1988 Olds Toronado?



The Toronado in the picture is not mine. Mine however is the same color though.

So does anyone have any suggestions on what style of American Racing Rims that would look really good on this car?

Also I am open for suggestions on anything else that would give my Toronado some more "Muscle" to it!

Thank You
-Steven

If you want American Racing, I think these look really good:

You could also get some steelies, look for some baby moons and beauty rings, and wrap them in some white letter tires.

you cant get baby moons for steelies

i would get something that has an 80s look to match your car that isnt stock, older cars dont look right with modern rims

I've always been a fan of the 338'* or Torque Thrush II'*. I'm not sure what your taste/ financial situation is, but if it were me i'd look into 18'* for that car with a lower profile tire (not too low), and see if you can find some lowering springs to bring the lip of the wheel well to the top of the actual wheel. If that happened i think you'd be stylin

I personally found a set of 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT snowflake rims that have a little more aggressive style to them. They have ABS on the center caps and are 16 inch rims. Not that I am saying you should do what I do. I saw some American racing rims on an 88 but they stuck outside the wheel wells, didnt really look good to me but to each their own.

IMO, I would pick these for your car if I had to go with American Racing.
