They do both look nice...but I don't think #1 fits as well.

dont like the number 1s because of the bolts or whatever. those look cheap. I'd go for the second set.

I'm liking #2. It seems to go with the subtle/sleek nature of the car.

Never under-estimate the appeal of simplicity. The 1st set makes it look as if you're trying to be a street racer with an Olds. The second set looks more like they came with the car as a special trim order. Go for the second set.

here'* an Aurora with similar rims.. I think they look pretty good. Should I go for it? It'd probably be a little over $1,000 with tires and rims when it'* all said and done and I'd keep my stock wheels with my Pirelli'* for winter. (or should I keep my Yokohama Ice Guard winter tires instead?)

Actually i found a better rim that I think would be more suitable for the Aurora.

It'* called Enkei Vortex. I would post a pic but my computer is slow. They just came out with those rims and I think it would look really freakin awesome on ur car
