Throw some tire wet on them tires and the chrome will blend in better

But really they don't look bad. I think the center cap is a little much maybe.

You're welcome! They look great on you car !... and so does the flag emblem. I was shaving the Brembos so I put 3mm spacers on, did you?

ps- hint put antisieze on the knockoff hex screw cause if you can't get the knockoff loose you can't get at all the lug nuts

Thanks for the kind words! I was looking for that old school look ...like I had back in the 60's with my first muscle car.

no spacers on the brembos.......Had them installed, and they had fun figuring out the o-ring, and for those of you who are not a fan, oh well old school cool can not be for everyone thats the thing about taste....And well curb your stock rims once and see how you feel about them.......at least these are inset spokes

These do not fit? Needs spacers and you need to shave the calipers? And properly fitting wheels in a similar style from a number of different manufacturers weren't on sale at Walmart when you were there or what?

As for curbing your rims may I suggest don't drink and drive.

They fit but with only 1mm of clearance to the Brembos ( too close is what I meant by "shaving" the Brembos) so I added 3mm custom built aluminum spacers as Brembo recommends 3mm minimum clearance. Next time you're in Walmart ( or any wheel dealer on the web) try finding one that has 20s that also offer a knockoff spinner.

Like he said they're not for everyone but if you like the old school "muscle" car not "euro sports" car look they're great.
