I'd like to thank JimB

I got my "new" wheels and tires on today!

The wheels were a gift from Justin who got them from JimB.

Here is a picture of my 2 friends, and the wheels in question.



And here are the wheels today on the old girl. Makes her look 10 years newer!











The wheels required a little work. but nothing a wire wheel and some sand paper couldn't fix. I'm thinking it might be time for a wash and some glamor shots!

Thank You Jim!

Thank You Justin!

They are fake Lorinsers installed in Southern California, and were on the car when I bought it in 1996 as CPO off a Mercedes Benz dealer's used car lot near Disneyland, California.


They do look nice on your SD, Nik. They are 16" wheels. Glad you are enjoying them.

L.L. Cool J. yo...

Look pretty nice. I keep thinking about modernizing from the original bundts, but it's a cost that isn't necessary, and I still have good rubber on the 14"s.

I like the "deep-dish" offset...gives the car an aggressive stance!
