Default new rims opinion

looking for new rims..
i love my current rims but because i had them on all winter long.. they dont look soo good up close.. so i might buy a new set and keep the current ones for winter

im kinda interested in the Boss 318 Black Chrome rims, also in 20s instead of current 18s

what do you think? would this look nice my bonneville ? or find something else

personal opinion here but i'd say find another set of split 5 spokes or some solid 5 spokes the 6th one looks kinda funny just my 2 cents i really like the ones you have now

My opinion, not the best fit for your car. The sixth spoke looks a little off on a five bolt wheel.
