Good point. I guess when I was going 50, I was going 45. Anyways, I'm going to go out one day and drive sisde by side with someone at different speeds and get to know what my speedometer will be saying at those speeds.

Looks pretty clean IMO.
One though -how did you get 14" wheels over the front calipers? I tried putting 15" Oldsmobile aluminum rims on my 1994 SLE and they wouldn't go on -the calipers were too big.
I have tried 14 inch spare wheels from older Bonneville'* (1987-91) with no luck either.

Surprisingly they cleared. I got maybe an inch of clearance though. But it is on the hub so when i hit a bump i wont have to worry about anything scraping.

That don't look too bad..... I figured 14" would look utlra tiny... but they are pretty nice.
The 100 spokes are pretty damn cool though.
