Good deal on the Astek wheels.

Why did you get rid of the swoops
You could have made money on the Astek wheels and kept a better looking wheel IMO.

You now have Corvette tipped, Astek wheeled, Bonneville.

Sorry Haro.
I know we all have slightly different tastes.
Happy to see you like them and made some bucks.

I like the look of both wheels so it'* a toss.
The swoops are just the new torque star. Maybe haro will create the new fad with Aztek wheels.

They were Bonneville wheels first, dang it. Pontiac saw what an improvement they were, so they gave it a stab on the Aztek...

IMO, swoops are the new aero-lite, fan blade looking things that my 92 originally came with.

My drag tires are mounted on 92 fan blade things.

Of course I have to love my swoops. I paid the optional $900. for them.
