im not so sure, the rims have sharp edges to them and you dont have a straight line on your car.. a rim has to match the flow of a car.

I agree.

The crosslaces look great on the 95 Bonneville. The only reason I would replace them is to go to a larger rim size and run summer tires on the new rims. To do that would be a decent expense. But I would want a max performance summer tire.

BTY your color is really nice!

That'* interesting that you said that. My rims (I'm sure Oats has seen it so did Tom) are straight yet it works wonderfully with the car. Those rims does look similar to the rims on (I believe?) J Wikoff'* car

I'd stick with the laces for now.
Coated/machined wheels are harder to keep clean so,I'm more partial to chrome

The vinyl was not Photoshop. It was reflective and made for some really cool effects, but I grew tired of it. It is no longer reality.
