I usually prefer the 5-spoke look to the swoopies, but something about those red calipers really brings it all together well. Nice tails too!

I think Graphite Metallic is one of those colors that lets five spokes or swoopies or any rims work good with it.

I don't diss you for that, I think it'* actually a good decision.

Not that the swoops look bad, I just think 5-spokes look better. Maybe the newer hub caps could help?

I like the swoopies better personally. And with the painted calipers and the clear tails, very nice!
Now, you ready to take $00 for your other one?

your 5 spoke rims would look hot on your old bonnie.

YES! I have been checking ebay for the chrome center caps for these. I think that will make them look even better.

Roadtech, you're right, the 5 spokes would look nice on the 94, but it'* for sale so I won't be putting them on. I used to have the swoops on the 94. JWikoff has the 5-spokes on his 92.

Shadow, I love chrome, so I'm not sure about the GXPs. I'd love a set but I wouldn't know what to use for summer. The GXPs are the one 5-spoke wheels I would keep if I had them originally.

Thanks Vince. I've actually been thinking of getting GXP tails sometime, and the GXP spoiler. It wouldn't be a cheap change though.
