The only thing I can tell ya is that any aftermarket rim(unless u spend BIG bucks)are alot more heavy than stock......so for those purposes alone.....I'd stay w/stock.....I know, I have "18'*, but trust me when I say, when I change them over for winter or vice versa I can definatly tell the difference!!

Gotta say, I'm not a fan of those new rims. I'd stay stock if those two are the choice.

How about the rims that came on the 2003 Buick Park Avenue Ultra, those "multi-swoopies"? I think that would look good on the Riveria

im really on the fence about this one.. i dont really like either that much, but you have to love the 17 inch chrome factor

did you find a 4th rim?

I believe a friend of mine has two of these rims sitting around. Its been a while since I have seen them so I have to check.

Not to drag my own topic "off topic" but is there anyway to repair that forth rim?

the crack looks unfixable to me, but i have no experience fixing rims. my bet is that its a big negative on repairing that
