Default Rim opinion plz

I always liked all the Pontiac stock rims especially the Torques and the Honey Combs... I was wondering what you thought of each of these types of rims on my car... I can get the honey combs with tires real cheap and havent found a set of the chromies yet

you want new upgraded look, go with the rear rim if you want classic old school go with the front

Would you be interested in the 9 spoke rims? I know they are not the most popular but you mentioned you like all the Pontiac stock rims. Just curious?

I don't like both to be honest.

I think Pontiac rims are more suitable for all Pontiacs and no crossmatching. Have you tried www.tires.com or www.tirerack.com? They show good wheels.

I would try www.tirerack.com first because it'* more detailed. However, you'll hae to "Print Screen" then save it to photobucket because you can't linik tirerack to here.

EDIT: For your car I strongly recommend those rims (hell of a deal.) http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...976&highlight=

I think the 20 spokes off the 00+'* look awesome on regals.

I don't think either look bad at all really. The one up front seems to go better with the Regal in my opinion. The rear gives it a sportier look, but I'm not sure I think "sporty" when I see a Regal. The one up front gives a more "classy" appearance, which is more in line with Buicks I think.

Of the two, I like the front wheel better on the Regal. It goes with the car more.

I don't care for either one myself. I say find a set of the chrome rims from a GS.

Good point, the GS Rims are the most perfect for that car.
