And here is the big reveal.
I love them. Exactly what I wanted.
Love the tire thread and look.
These are definitely a step up from my old 14" wheels.
I probably won't be doing a test fitment until later this coming weekend.

Yeah post them up on your ride. I see they are $80 a rim. That is cheap! 18lbs a wheel in 16x7. Great color choice. That style of color is what I want to go with on my next set for sure.

Yes can't beat that price. I think they were priced reasonably. They make them in 14s all the way to 19s.




Here you go guys. Perfect fitment. No rubbing etc.
Got some new spline lug nuts in the same color to match as well. This is all I have for now. In a few weeks once winter is gone they'll go on full time. Image

Not yet. I didn't put them all on. Just put 1 on for picture purposes. Spring weather is upon us tho, here in Indiana at least. So I might put all 4 on by this coming weekend. Maybe have new full pictures by Sunday night.

Guess I spoke too soon on the weather. It's back to cold. Maybe another 2 week and wheels will be on.

Update on the hood. Decided im too busy to work on the hood so I took it to a bodyshop guy a buddy recommended me and he gave me a price I couldnt say no to. Hood will be ready in about 3 weeks.
