Those are new wheels.. and as far as i can see in the pictures, they aren't balanced at all. I wouldn't worry about rotating them, but i'd definitely take them to your local tire/auto place and get them balanced. I don't mind the lighter gold.. it is more subtle, and in some ways can be much more appealing. It can possibly help you out of your gold freakishness stage You've got my approval. Hopefully i'm putting on my chromies tomorrow, so we'll have to snap some shots when i get back to school. See ya

I really miss the golds- mine were the 90-91 with that annoying center cap. what is the weight of those ones in comparison I wonder?
The color combo does look great tho- I always liked the 92-95 gen in green with the gold. I hope your interior is tan....
love the tint too.

Actually after i mounted them I hauled them to my goodyear dealer and had them balanced. One of the front wheels has a huge 3oz weight on it so i'm guessing that'* the one. I will try rotating, but i hate doing that cause I already rotated the tires during the rim swap so the tires are currently where they need to be

I've actually seen it done. There is one I see around here all the time, its a 92, white two tone interior with the 90-91 ghettos that just happen to be in mint condition....

I like the rims and how they look on your car. I have the ghetto golds and personally I want to get the silver ones.

More and more shops are using the stick ons. They go on the inside of the rim and tack on using some sort of strong tape backing.

I rather the ones on the rim, at least you know they wont go no where unless you hit a curb or a pothole.
