    OMG... the pain of polishing between all of those rivets..... I so feel for you.

    And they look great!

    Looks good Kurt. Honestly, I'm so accustomed to seeing your car with your old wheels I kind of like the old look better than the new look but it doesn't matter as long as you like them.

    I was fortunate to find a deal on them already in the 4.25" bolt pattern. I will say the tires were more expensive than the wheels ...and I bought relatively cheap tires.
