You are now the second person whose car I've admired to tell me that they were running H&R springs. I guess that solidifies what I'll be going with. Thanks!

My goal was a wheel that mimicked the look of the Vantage GT4 wheels:
My view, I love the wheels AM has designed, this is what you see on the cars, it's comfort food. It looks "right". Aftermarket wheels could be far superior in quality, but I have yet to see a single wheel I would take over any of my factory favorites, the 5 spoke sport pack DT, the 10 spoke sport pack DT with charcoal back, or the original V12 10 spoke with charcoal.

As you yourself were trying to emulate a factory wheel.

So far, every car shown that have aftermarket wheels and almost all the factory wheels have thin spokes.

When Aston Marin introduced the N24 model it had Speedline(?) wheels that had wide spokes. It was also the first model that had the carbon fiber side skirt. I was probably the first to install those side skirts on a regular production model(mid 2007).

The 18" N24 wheels look better, that's what's on mine!

Beefy 5-spokes work for me! I've got a few examples that fall in that category:

If you want the quality of your wheel to match the quality of your Aston Martin then you should consider the HRE Classic 300's or the 940RL as seen below.

IMO-thick 5 or 6 spoke wheels or 3 piece riveted wheels looks good in most racing or track cars. For my taste I want little sporty look but I want the wheels to match the Aston's Elegance.

Funny that this thread started recently as I had one of my customers who purchased from me in 2015 reach out to me yesterday to help with his new 911. He shared these AM photos with me which I had never seen before.

My first set of non-OEM wheels were the BC Forged RT50. Picked them because I wanted the look of the 5-spoke wheels of the N24 but with a thinner, more elegant spoke to better suit a street car.




This set is 8.5" in front and 9.5" in rear (same as OEM) but with a much better offset. They're flat-face so not concave at all, but they'd look really awesome with some concavity, too. Those wheels are now on my red Vantage project car, but I'll be swapping them out for another set soon. I'm torn between a couple of designs, including BC Forged RS42, which isn't too far off from the split 5-spoke wheels from the earlier Sport Pack.



The other one I'm considering is the RZ39.



My grey Vantage has a set of BC Forged RZ05's in a much wider fitment - 9.5" in front and 11" in rear.





There are plenty of other wheels styles and finishes, too. Happy to help discuss some options!
