They look like the Saleen Racecraft wheels to me. I had thought about the Racecraft wheels for a while but decided to stick with the fr500's.

A 17x7.5 in this style would look great on our cars with a 235 55 17 tire that is not to wide and widely available.

I saw that in your first post. Maybe it's just the first picture being dark, just looks like you have a ton of space in the wheel wells. The rims really work well with the color of your Bird. Any plans to paint the calipers?
