Alcoa Wheels -vs- Budnik GTB wheels from 2011 Sema Show


Recommended Posts

Want to see what other people think: for a 2014 Shelby GT500 would you go with the Alcoa's Durabright or the Budnik GTB wheels from 2011 Sema Show?

Both cost about the same....

The Alcoa Dura-bright SS (or SS Style) wheels are the *only* wheels I've seen that really look GREAT on a GT500. I liked them from the instant I first saw them and I looked at a bunch. I like 'retro' styling and originally thought about going to a Torque Thrust or Torque Thrust D style of wheel but none reached out and grabbed me like the Alcoa Dura-brights did.

 

I like (and have) the 18" KR Alcoa Dura-bright wheels too but the 20's still *look* better. I bought a set of 18" KR's just for the added extra sidewall I'd get, for traction reasons (in a straight line) and the ability to get a bigger selection of Drag Radials (DR's) or slicks because there were NO 19" or 20" DR's available when I bought them.

 

I vote Alcoa all the way.
