Damn!!! I wish I could find a set of those rather than my 18" Prime/Chrysler 300C Special rims.

That dont even look like an Aurora, but a nissan or something. Wheels dont look bad though, but I like your chromies better.

Ouch! lol, dont tell any 2001+ Aurora owners that

Looking at it again, I now understand why Nissan Altimas and the new Max look like they do....Oldsmobile leading the way in design

Hey atleast nissan owners don't take infinity wheels and put them on their car...

GXP rims are fine, chrome is just for looks, gets dinged anyways, and is HEAVY.
