Looks sharp Pete! The swoopies are sharp with that color. Since I bought my car in March I've had 3 or 4 times when I've had compliments on my swoops. Updated center caps might look hot too.

I love it, but I have two problems, one you can do something about, the other...you cant

1. 01+ center caps (but looks like yer onto that)
2. 17" just dont seem big enough for the back end of the 01+. Its so big and bulky, it seems only 18'* could balance it out.



That being said, you'd make a good choice with the swoops, they're good for your new car. And the 5 spokes give you some bargaining leverage when its time to sell.

It'll be nice to get our cars side by side with the same rims for a kick *** photo shoot.

Overall, well done Pete!

Pete, I think both wheels look great, but since we're all giving our opinion I think the 5 spokes give the car a further sense of refinement compared to the swoopies, but I don't think you can go wrong with either.

I agree, the 5-spokes did give it a 'cleaner' more subtle and perhaps 'classier' look to it.

If they made swoopies in 18s I'd be in heaven! The perspective in that one pic makes the back wheel look really small.

i think that the 00 centercaps look good, they compliment the gray of the car

I was thinking the same thing Aaron. They match the gray perfectly and tie everything together.

If I can find a set of chrome caps I'll swap them to see what I like more. Maybe I'll borrow Jim'* for a while when I go up to his place next month. I'll let him drive around with the Pontiac darts. lol
