New Rims, No Tint, Detailed - 11 pics

My car is finally looking the way I wanted it back in the early 90's. I always loved the OEM look, but wanted the coupe wheels. When I saw Bling's "Legend on the River" photos it re-ignited the fire under my ass to buy some 7 spokes asap...thanks Bling.

I had the rims installed Thursday and was so excited I purchased all new detailing products. Meguiar's Smooth Surface Clay Kit, Meguiar's Cleaner Wax and Mother's Back to Black.

I'm no photographer, but did my best. I hope you like. IMHO my car is starting to look a little more...well...Splendid





















BEFORE

My old rims are for sale - see my sig for link

Thanks for looking.

7 spokers are very flattering on gold. Nice.

I think OEM is the best look. I just don't happen to think any of the various arrangements of OEM got it exactly right all at once

I'm really glad to hear that, I love these wheels too.

Got really lucky when Joe said he had a refinished set.

Enjoy em bro, they look great on your sedan!

I second that. Golden Glow looks amazing when it's in good condition.

agreed. Here is my quote to Blingting in "Legend on the River" ....5-2-08 "Call me simple, but I really like the 7 spoke OEM's on the sedan....especially your sedan. I've been on the lookout for a set...hopefully some day."

Thanks.

They were installed by Capitaland Tire in Latham (old Wolf Road). Really close to my work. I drop it off and walk. They hook me up because I bring all our work vehicles there.

Yes that is Nisky's Town Hall. What part of Albany are you? My S-I-L and B-I-L live in the Buckingham Lake area off Western Ave.
