As I stated above, I went with the 18" inch wheels and the grill that retains the driving lights, but tinted them.
And also lowered the car a couple of inches.. added the SCT tune and K&N filter also. It runs wild now. 8)

A profile view after waxing, buffing and installing the snake emblems...

A profile view after installing the hood, fresh out of the paint booth...

And a view of the scanner lenses installed...

Still working on the hood vents and ordered the correct rear spoiler. Should have them done within the week.
Please, let me know what ya think. :wink:
I must say, It looks awesome!!! I think the way you went for those rims are the next best thing! I bet future KR3T Builders will go with those too!!! Sweet Ride Man!

Howdy, I didn't set out to make a KITT replica originally but it started to look like one with a the Shelby Alcoa wheels. I know it's not the correct body style but it's very similar.

There is a set of alcoa wheels & tires for sale on TeamShelby.com for $3500 in the gt500 section. You will need to register to see it.

there is a rumor going around that Shelby might bring back the SuperSnake wheel, because it was a popular wheel. however it wont be called Alcoa because Alcoa didnt want to make the wheel anymore
