    Great lookingcar...except for those rims. Sorry man, but they need to go. But hey, to each their own.

    The design of the rims is nice, but I think that anything over 18 inch is too big for a Riviera.
    But you're happy with the new look of your car, and that's all that counts :TU: !!

    It's kind of the trend in New Zealand. To put anything less than 20" would be considered not worth it :D

    People are also following that trend here in the Netherlands, even in the conservative province of Zeeland where your country is named after :cool:

    Take those off PLEASE!! Looks like you had a VERY nice car to start with. Anything over 15-17" looks like it's straight out of the ghetto to me...

    Don't let these negative responses get you. Its your car do what you want. understand that you exsposed yourself to people that don't know when to keep thier mouths shut. I was told that if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all.:bglasses:

    Wheels are a sensitive subject in the old car realm. I agree with the opinion that it is your car so you need to do what makes you happy. I'm a stock guy who likes hub caps on my car, but that is not you. Go for it!

    Haha I'm not bothered at all :pp

    Culture is an awesome thing and the world would suck if we were all the same.

    People in the ghetto couldn't afford those my friend :cool:

    P.S I put them on for handling purposes too. We actually have corners in our roads :pp and the low profile tires make it actually stick to the road. Couldn't stand the feel of those 15" BALLOON TRUCK TIRES flopping round every time you turned the wheel. :D

    I like the size. Rivieras have big wheel openings and you need a big tire or a big wheel to fill them. If you don't have whitewalls its a little to much tire for a 15". So I say 17-20 inch look good. I have been looking for something with 6 spokes so you don't see through them as much.
    I'm picky about offset. It looks like your wheels are the kind you often see on Suburbans and chevy trucks. They look good, but a deeper dish would be perfection. Like it was said above, everyone has strong opinions on wheels.

    People in ghettos could not afford them? People in our ghettos up here all have those. They put them on worn out Chevys, Buicks and Olds. They will go lean on food for weeks to buy them. I know, because they keep stopping me trying to buy my Riv to put those on it. It makes me sick thinking about someone raping my car like that.

    After they have bought it from you, it's no longer your car.
    So what's the problem :Do No: ?

    Ask a ridiculous high price, if they still want to buy it:
    Cash the money and buy something better :TU: !

    In previous posts you told us that you want to convert your 1966 Riviera with a 4 speed manual gear box.
    To a lot of people that's also "raping a car".....
