"New Wheels"

Thanks to rockingoat for the wheels. I think they look really good. It may not be the top pick for some people but I'm really happy with them.

Glad you like em!

I like the color, but no matter how hard I try I just can't like 17s.

I think the stock 17's is a great looking wheel. They do require some extra work to keep them clean. I think we'll see the day they are sought after. and bring big bucks from those looking to restore originality. I just bought another pristine set to put up.

My final goeal is to save up for CCW's one day. The wheels I had on there were leaking around the bead and it was going to cost me around the same amount to get them fixed as it was to get the new wheels. These wheels will help me save a lot of money on tires since they came with tires and the tires I had on there only have about 2,000 miles on them, probably less.
