Default rora.. rims?

I'd like to get a second oppinion from Bonneville owners on if they think these rims (which were previously on the Riviera) would look good on the Aurora or not. It'* basically split with me. I can't decide if I like them on there or not. Some days i think it looks great, other days, I want to keep the totally stock look.

I'm too lazy to use photoshop so I just set the rims next to the car. lol

Both spoked rims:

The reason i want to do this is because I want both a winter and summer set of wheels. I'd like to put my snow tirse on the stock rims, and my summer tires on the spoked rims. That way I don't have to pay the $60 mount/balance fee two times a year. With two sets of rims I can do it myself at home and just pay the $120 once to get the tires mounted and balanced.

I'd go for it. Those style of wheels usually look good on anything.
Of course i'm slightly bias on that one.

Holy wheel gap, those cars need to be lowered 1-1.5" badly.

I'd do it.

shhh. you're not supposed to see the wheel gap. I'm afraid to lower it. It'* already only 5" off the ground in the front end. The wheels are just too small. they're only 16". The bonneville has 17'* and it'* the same body style. Probably why the wheel gap looks so huge.

I think both look great on the car, so switch em for winter and summer based on which you like more.
