PostSubject: N97s or full wheel covers   Thu Oct 21, 2010 5:26 pm

I am looking for opinions here. So I have made it a poll.

I was thinking of cleaning up the wheels and painting them gloss black, and polish the caps, or just keep the full covers on. I like it either way.

What does everyone think?

I like the N97's (voted)
Just had mine powder black gloss for caps & trim rings (might remove rings for the winter)
Only 2nd thought I had was maybe gunmetal would look better, I always liked that corvette look.

I say hubcaps for the winter beater. At least the center caps wouldn't get screwed up.

I agree, it just doesn't have that mean look the N97s give it. I would use those before the snow/salt comes, then switch to caps. Unless theyre not that great anyway, in that case just run them year round.

Trade me the n97's for a set of actual "old school" wheels and then you can ride in style Wink

That's what I want to do on the 93 civi I have. I'll probably just try to mimic the look with some kind of center that actually will stick on these wheels, then dig up trim rings from somewhere.

I get my trim rings from Bennys. They are about $6 a piece and stainless steel.

Are they done? - Did you ever post pics? - Please do, if you have not posted them yet.

I really want to widen two fronts @ 8.5" and two @ 9.5 for the rears.

It would be most DELUXE if trim rings from OEM 7" Vette Ralleys fit the fronts and rings from the 8"ers fit the rears.

Lol. Talk about bumping old threads. I believe the white car is now pink, the trim rings are sold out at benny's, and I may have seen those wheels today on my northern adventure. I may be wrong, but they looked like 8's to me.
