Which Rims?


Let's take a vote on which Rims I should keep on my 1995 RT.

Re: Which Rims?

Tough call, they both look Viper since they are both stock. Both look exactly equal if you ask me. Get some aftermarket!

Thor:
I voted for the 5 spoke...so if you decide to go with the 3 spoke let me know. I wouldn't mind some polished ones. Mine are not polished. [img]/images/graemlins/down[/img] Gerald has a good point about after market rims. But I think the S/C comes first tho...

3 spoke! There's something very sexy about a Gen 1 with those wheels - lower it a bit too [img]/images/graemlins/wink[/img].

Great looking car, THOR, I WILL get you that Michelin poster!

Re: Which Rims?

I voted 5 spoke but those look like 96 so it's not a slam dunk, I prefer the high polish of 98. You can get the 3 spokes polished and they look 100% better.

Re: Which Rims?

I've had both, and I definitely like my car better w/ the 5 spokes (and lowered). Mine are the higher polish 5 spokes though. The 3 spokes I had were chrome (came w/ the car that way) and they looked pretty good too.

Thnax guys for all the responses. The picture doesn't do them justice, but the five spoke rims are the high polished finish.

I like both sets of rims, and will probably just run the 5 spokes for now. I will certainly put the original 95 three spoke rims in the attic for a later date (and in case I change my mind). [img]/images/graemlins/smiles[/img]

Thanx for your post Clint.
I do like the 3 spoke rims a lot. I could not make up my mind if I wanted to polish or chrome them. Then this set of 5 spokes came along, and ... now I am confused. [img]/images/graemlins/dunno[/img]
Maybe the 5 spokes will grow on me given a little time. If not, I'll put em up for sale.

Yes, if you can find that Michelin ad/poster that would be awesome.
