  • 20 spokes or 10 spokes?

    I just bought another set of 10 spoke wheels. I put them on the convertible to see how it looks.

    I like both style wheels, I'm not sure which ones look better. I like cleaning the 10 spokes better, they are easier.

    I'll probably throw the octastars on next.

    Opinions welcome.

      I think the 20 spokes 'fit' the convertible best.

          I'd also vote for the 20 spoke. But I always really liked those. particularly on a gen 1

            You know. If you get photos of snowflakes, and painted 10-spokes, we could make photos of your car into the "definitive Mark VIII wheel guide"

              Both have style, but 20's add a bit more class

                    I think the 20 spokes fit the 'Vert and color of the car best.

                    I am a fan of chrome 10 spokes myself, and octastars, but on the green gen 1 'vert...the 20 spokes seem to "fit the style" of the car best.

                      Thanks guys for the opinions. I also asked family and friends, most of them tend to like the 10 spokes. One friend said he likes the 20 spokes on my green hardtop and convertible, similar to the opinions here, but he likes the 10 spokes better on my black Mark.

                      I actually do have a nice set of snowflakes, the painted 10 spokes are the only Mark VIII wheels I don't have.

                        Are the 20's "directional" like the 10's? I like the 10's myself.....wish they had 'em for my Z !

                          Yes, the 20 spokes are directional too Bud.

                          For the 10 spokes, maybe you could hub swap to the Mark VIII bolt pattern to the Z.

                            Doubt it... I have 8Jx18 ET55wheels....and 245/45R18 96V tires now. These are pretty much set for the Hybrid.

                              20 spokes look better on your vert.
