    So I sold my dailey... An OT Tahoe and have been driving my old reliable 59 olds.... Got tired of looking at the old 14" whitewalls that have been on there for 10 years... So I bought a set of 15" Buick rims with some good bias blys on em. Yea I know they are rat rod red, blah blah blah.... That's the color they came!!

    So I decided to slap some hubcaps on it to see which ones I liked.... I ended up with the pontiacs... They look the best to me!!

    What do you guys think?

    Since it's an Olds I prefer the Fiestas at bottom. Cool car.

  5. As a fellow Olds owner, I would pick the '56 pontiacs. Killer car. What model?

  17. I say go with the Buick covers as well, but the Pontiacs look good too.. glad I don't have to make the final call. :)

    Damn Chad... saw the post title and thought you were talking about a new girlfriend or something. Nice thing about a car that size is you can definitely carry enough feed for her in the back seat!

    I like the 50s Buick caps. I like a nice moon disc look, and those are close to it.

    I'm running the pontiacs just cause they have so much more flicker to them, but I can always switch them out!!! :D
