Not really my thing. I don't think they' look right on these cars. Don't think they look right on any car really. But whatever makes you happy, I guess.

Nope, but it's not really my style, I'm into he whole hot-rod image. I wish they made Weld Draglites in 5x108, then I wouldn't have to do a hub swap.

pros: if you wanna roll spokes, then go for it. I think a 100 or 150 spoke looks good in big sizes like 20 or 22. Gold is a little too tacky, go for silver. If you get spokes, you gotta get candy paint, do it right so to speak.

cons: theft magnet, tires are hideously expensive, they would be a biatch to clean. they are too gangsta for me.

if you got the cash, do what ya want. I prefer a lighter performance orientated rim.

20 or 22 is way too big for any car. And spokes really aren't my thing either. But its your car man. If you think it'd look good, knock yourself out. It all just depends on what your into, I don't think most people on here are probably into things like that.

Not a fan of wire rims either, I just think it would look strange on an MN12. But as others have said, it's your car so do as you wish...at least you'll be different.

Some people never grow up.... but I digress


I'm not into the large wire rim deal myself (or the small ones for that matter, though I have seen some applications where I thought the big ones looked nice). But I suppose the folks that make 'em gotta earn a living too. If you like the wheels and think they'll look good, dont let us stop you.

i think they look alright in the 100 spokes, 150's have to much wire, and make the rim look cluttered, i got the hundred spoke k.o.'s and they do look alright on my car, for now, but i plan on getting some 18" five spoke rims later on........later'z....
