Everyone hates my wheels

Everyone hates my wheels but me!




Next week I will have it running and cleaned up.

I love the look!

I'm sure pure pressure will kick and get some rallies.

Re: Everyone hates my wheels

And there you have answered your own question. Who cares about anybody else? I actually like them too.

Re: Everyone hates my wheels

I always thought the wheels really make the look of the car. Like others have said, all that matters is that you like them.

I expected you to have TT 2's...

Your wheels look fine to me.

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example

Correct, I don't like them! But, that's just one opinion.

Re: Everyone hates my wheels

I run my black 14" with the original wheel covers. With the derby caps the purists would want to see body colour wheels.

Re: Everyone hates my wheels

"Dogdish" caps. Derby caps are 68/9 (and later) rally wheel caps. But yeah, red would give it some POP !

Has anyone tried trim rings on the 67/8 base steel wheels ? In 69, trim rings were optional on standard wheels....or I think they're standard wheels. Pics from CRG...

Yep, I don't think it's the wheels so much as the lift kit look.
