Gotta admit, these style rims look BETTER on this style body than they do where they are supposed to belong. Plus, they came with Yoko Tourings that still had quite a bit of treadlife left (they are long-wearing, but not good for performance). And they look WAY better than the Aerolites...and lighter to boot!

Buck fiddy. Take my Aerolites to the yard and I get 40 back.

And yes, they do look good. I need new center caps for them though. Anyone want to photoshop what white or chrome might look like on it??

OMG. Those wheels finally found their correct home. They don't look that great on the 96-99s, but DAMN, they WORK on the 92-95! Excellent decision.

I saw the link to this and thought you had for fun switched wheels with another car just to see what it would look like, but I scrolled down and BAM! Awesome!

It looks disproportionate with the wide SSE/i cladding IMO. But whatever floats your boat DId you save the aerolites?

Still got them, though probably not for too long. I'll put them up on CL for cheap, and if they don't sell, I'll make another pilgrimage to Daytona to get 40 bucks out of them (core charge). Either way, they ain't going back on the car.

I want them (Aerolotes). How much you want for them shipped? I'll have to talk to my Dad first about it., but I am definitely interested. A lot better looking than my gray ones.

Damn, those look a ton better. I've never been a fan of the colored aerolites, but your new five spokes look great!
