I voted for the new spokes.

Stock. I like the stock look. I'm bias though, I'm not much of a person to mod. Just fix things as they break.

I'm talking about tire/body gap. Bigger rims and same diameter tires wont' change that, it'll actually make it worse. It'* a nice sporting look, not flashy or anything, more like a track look. I like it.

But if you could find some nice drop springs..

Stay Stock! The chrome wheels look classy.. the epic wheels look cheap compared to the stockers.... sorry to say. tough decision for you!

alright. I did a photoshop of the rims. (yes they turned out kind of bad.. lol) Well, I'm not sure really. I like the way both look really. I do like the chrome wheels because they're classy, but the spoked ones are sporty looking. Hard decision.

The spoked rims have a green tint to them because I took the rims from a picture of the Riviera when it was on grass. it was the only picture I had of them that showed them actually being clean. The green makes them look really funky.

EDIT: I did some more work with photoshop and get rid of the green tint from the rims. Worked pretty nicely.

If you had the stock aluminum rims and not chrome, I'd go with those spoked rims, but since you have chrome, if it were my car I'd stay with chrome...but either rim style fits nicely.

PS.. If only you saw a picure of MY wheel gap. Looks like a dang muscle car the way it'* jacked up in the back It'* pretty high in front too....I liked it better when I had my old crappy frozen struts...car looked like I lowered it 2".
