Twister97 is on a distinguished road
Default Black and Gold

Its had three sets of wheels through its life. The stock 15" Steel Wheels with the hubcaps. Then the 17" ASA Silvers, now for very long trips and snowy months I picked up a set of these 16" Ghetto Gold wheels at a salvage yard and the Kumho tires are at 215/65/16 All Season, Temp and Traction are A, with a speed rating of H. From the Tirerack.

One thing I noticed right away was the difference of ride. The 17"* are a more agressive tire and the steering is a lot more firmer. These 16"* make the car feel very loose and easier to drive, as far as cornering.

Hmmm, I could just go get another grille, paint it gold then slap it on. They are really easy to take off and on. Might have to look into that....
