I've narrowed it down to Titans, Canistos (double 5 spoke 17"s from C70s, see "my 142" post), or Perfos (see "wheels" icon/picture on swedespeed.com gallery)

Tritons...2-piece, aluminum wheels made by BBS for Volvo. 18"x 7.5", ET+43mm.

Titans or Pegs. Look to Rob Prince's cars for what yours would look like with them...

I do like Canistos too, so if a too-good deal comes up, I say go for it :)

I don't like Perfos on 240s really.

Only choice I'd pick is Titans.

I'm a sucker for Mesh/BBS....a shame they aren't a RWD offset..imagine the lip...! Add these to the poll :)

Photochop excercise on my GT. Personally, I like the Tethys, but that was not the popular vote.

On my GT, I have seen Titans, Tritons (those 18" BBS), and Tethys. The Tritons are super sweet, but 18" tires are expensive and you can't run much sidewall. Therefore the ride is pretty rough and easier to bend a wheel. Titans look good on everything. Tethys took me a while to get used to, but now I like em. I don't really like Canistos on 240's, and I've never seen Perfos on one before.

So I voted for Titans.

i don't think you can go wrong with any of those choices.. my only suggestion is that you get siler wheels to go with the silver paint then match the red/orange striping to the calipers.. then a good lowering and it would look great imo..

finally voted titan...they look too cool i think

Chris' tethys' do look incredible tho, but then again, i like multispoke wheels
