Default Tryin On The Winter Shoes

Since this is the first winter i am going to be driving the Bonneville, I decided i probably should get some good tires. Well a friend of mine scrapped a Bonneville so i bought the rims/tires from him.
They started life as Gold Crosslaces, the guy who had them before me painted them silver, i didn't want the silver so i painted them black. I really like how they turned out.

Today was like 80* and the trees are turning so i decided to swap rims and take some pics...

I hate to say it but i almost like these black rims more than the impala rims

I didn't get to take too many pics then the battery in the camera died

Go for whitewall tires or raised white lettering. But looks good, like the black/white combo you've got going.

I love it . The only thing I would change is I would leave a center rim cap silver.
