Best Wheels for a Highland Green GT/CS

The tires on this car are around 11 years old so I'll eventually need to change them. When that happens I'll also change the wheels to 15" or 16". I think certain wheels look best on certain color cars.

Which wheels do you think will look best on this car?
- 10 spokes
- Chrome Styled Steel
- Keystones
- Torq Thrust
- Magnums
Any other ideas?

Thanks

I'm somewhat of a purist, so I would go with the styled steels, either in chrome or argent.

+1 on the Torque Thrusts if you are going away from stock.

Here are some on a 67 coupe that I restored in 2015. I sold the car to a young couple that used it to drive away from their wedding.

I'm with Steve on this one ... always liked the looks of the factory styled wheels either in argent or chrome.

I may have passed my "best before" date, but I haven't reached my "expiry" date!
