Over the years I've acquired/tried on many sets of wheels and just can't seem to find a set I like better at more than a few angles than the age old played out rally wheels lol. Maybe it's because I dont have the money/patience to play with different size tires on the larger rims...or my cars stance is just all wrong..or a combination. Maybe larger wheels just dont "fit" my car. Figured I'd post my compilation in chronological order heh

ss mags

silver rally's

staggered junkyard dogs

zq8's

black rally's with adjusted stance

Zr1's

The black rallys really do match the "I'm not trying" attitude of your car really well, but man does it ever look good with the zq8's.

The Zr1's look really good on there also, & the chrome matches the lower body trim well. However, they brighten up the car just a tad too much. Just thinking out loud, but how about blacking out the Zr1's? Plasti-dip?

Zq8 wheels are one of my all time favorites on a monte SS... The rallyes are pretty strong old school look

Maybe it's just me, but I liked the stock SS wheels in the first photo.

I'd be interested in how a set of the 17" N90 wheels would look on your car.

Stock SS or ZQ8's with the way your car sits/looks, IMHO, YMMV.

I'm contemplating TT2's on my LS in the near future myself.

Holy cow ... didn't realize you'd had so many wheel options on that MC ... LOL.

Have you tried or thought about honeycomb/checkerboard wheels? Just curious.....

Really dont like the honeycombs....on anything. Rally's are back on. Mostly because I like to spend as little time as possible cleaning the car, and shiny wheels make it worse lol

Silver ralley's are an age old classic and work well on any vehicle they get my vote also the stock mags are a close second.
