Well, only one I can think of was the craigslist wonder that came up about a month ago that had wheels of every type on it. Including a snowflake XR7 rim on one corner.

That said, I can't ever recall seeing anyone with the 15" snowflakes on a Bird before.

I had Cougar lace wheels I painted black on my Bird for a while before I found some SC wheels for it.

Thanks, but that's not my Bird anymore. That pic is from 2006, about a year before I sold it.

You sold it? Well, that's better than wrecking it for sure.

Dang .... that was a good looking ride .... I just love the color but to really set it off, "think pink" (and red) ...

.

A fine pair ... ... and whatever you do, Have a Safe Trip!

Those wheels bring me back. I did always like how they looked with fatter than stock tires on them, the tire bulge matched the curvature of the wheels nicely. Last time I saw my old set they were on the Taurus the guy I sold them to owned

I really like the rims on your Cougar. Where did you get them and are they still being made?
