    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.

    They look great, too. I might have a new favorite for your car.

    Why am I not surprised here?

    They do make the convertible look different, its amazing what different wheels can do to the looks of a car.
