Looking great...Cars do tend to get jealous. My Cutlass convertible has been slightly displaced because of my van... I think she feels like the older sibling that gets neglected when the new baby comes. On top of it, I've put my attention in a 1994 Cutlass convertible belonging to the neighbor lady...I think my 1992 is feeling very put out.

I think you should keep the 5-spokes.

I hate to say this but I definitely think you need to keep the 5-spokes. IIRC you said the rims were absolutely flawless compared to the swoopies.

Well I'll be putting the swoops on tomorrow. I'll know what I want to do afterwards. The swoops are more unique and they just look so nice on this body style IMO. Not that the 5-spokes don't. I was hoping I'd find an SSEi without chrome so I wouldn't have to make a tough decision like this.

The swoops are flawless except for some minor curb marks on a couple edges, maybe 3 rims...I'd have to check again. The 5 spokes AFAIK have some minor curb marks on one. The condition of each set is excellent. There isn't a huge difference in the two at all, and the curb marks are not noticeable until you get close. So my decision will be based on how the car looks with each set.

I'll post more pics tomorrow with the swoops on.

That almost looks like my stable Pete! Just put a big dent on the 94'* rear pass door, and paint your car white and you'll have it!

I agree the swoopies look WAY better than the 5 spokes......never cared much for that style.......but at least they looked better than the painted rims that were stock on some SLE/SE models (like PearlBonnies originals).

Now get that beast over to Intense and fix'er up Petey boy!!!

I can understand that. Thats a tough choice. I like em both.

My offer still stands to swap my winter rims for your winter rims.
