I say the dark stainless. Be a nice contrast. Can never go wrong with chrome on silver tho

I'd go with the dark stainless as well. It matches the black accents better

If these are going to be drag wheels, I'd go with whichever one is the lightest. Chrome is HEAVY and a 2 or 3 pound heavier wheel per corner is going to be worth a couple of 1/10th's or more in the 1/4 mile.
If both of your above current choices are significantly heavier than your current wheels, I'd keep looking for a much lighter wheel.

Yeah so far I am digging the dark stainless myself because of the black accents. Just not sure of the silver with chrome in the looks department. There aren't really any new edges in my area if you can believe it lol

Silver with chrome looks good usually i think. With the set up your going with (big and littles) it doesnt seem to matter as much on the wheel design as to me the big rear tires become the focal point. Are you still planning on a SC or Turbo for the car? I know you mentioned that a while back. I assume the big and littles is in preperation for more power at some point.

Definitely thinking turbo at some point down the road...but for now going with bolt ons and looks...going to be doing the wheels , 4.10's, a tuner, and still have to get the x-pipe, lowering springs and upper plenum put on. Thinking also too of just putting the lowering springs in the front only to get that old school look.

Yea that would look good with with the big and littles too, be a real old school "rake". Speaking of x pipes, I found a used Bassani off road x pipe within like 40 miles of me for $100. It looks like it was used for a few years, pretty dirty, doesnt look beat up though. Its stainless so Im not worried about rot, but question things like the flanges etc. I could always have it welded on like my x pipe on my 96, cost me like $65. I may shoot him an offer of like $70 for it. That price is great but I dont want junk either.
