So I was curious...

...how would a set of chrome Lincoln 10-spoke wheels look on my 'Bird? See for yourself...

Agree'd.

Lose the white side wall stripe.

Use that antenna for military satellite reception?

Update: All the wheels are now pointing the same way...woo hoo!! The whitewalls have also magically disappeared.

I can't wait to get new tires, though. Right now it has those crappy Walmart "Douglas" brand tires and the ride is, shall we say, less than optimum? But they came with the wheels and are practically brand new, and the miser in me can't come to getting rid of them until they're used up.

BTW the antenna is for ham radio. It hides in the trunk when I don't need it.
