I think that body style would look killer with a set of 20 spokes. Someone should try it.

Most will think I am just "posing". Those in the club know better

Considering I was running with this rim and tire for quite some time (due to the original tire developing a bulge), it'* a huge improvement.

are those tires factory size? they seem narrower. When I had the 5 spokes, my tires looked fleshy.

They are the stock 225/60-16. The pics aren't the best of angles, and the rims are straight, so maybe its an optical illusion thing. They really don't grip that great, but it'* ok...they will get me by for a year.

Me too. At first I got them just for the tires, but then I thought....damn they look good.

Honestly, I don't feel like shipping the rims out. And I think you would be better off just painting yours.

Hey, if you don't sell the aeros, i'd like the center caps, or at least one.
I have a broken tab on one of mine, and apparently USPS lost the ones I had coming


Looks good, though I still like my white aeros

I think they'd be cooler in 16U:


Oh, did you get tired of the SE Grille?

Got so tired of it...I smashed the hell out of it. Litterally. Honestly though, I had to break it to open the hood. Long story, and Don was there for part of it.

Rims do look good painted up

Sandrock, I have some black center caps from a grand prix that i had on my SLE that I think would look good.



LMK in a pm if you want 'em, they're just sitting in my garage.
