    Wheel combo is killer. I usually like the gennie wheel/trim set ups, but you car really came to life with the change.
     
  10. Thanks so much...it's like a whole new car!
     
  11. Buickfunnycar,
    Do your new wheels use shank-style or acorn-style lug nuts?
     
  12. Very nice, if you where asking my opinion which you weren't, I would follow the raw finish through out. Mirrors, tail light trim ring, windshield. but i know you didn't ask. I dig the wheels for sure. . . .
     
  13. Sorry I'm a little slow all i read was the first page, looks amazing
     
  14. New wheels use the older shank-style lugs and I must say they fit like a glove,very nice close tolerances...as you might expect with an American-made product.

    lo c dan,
    I hope you got your question answered,these wheels come stock with a satin polished lip and center but nothing else on the car is satin,what little shiny bits there are all chromed or polished so I had to go the polished look instead of satin. I did however,resist the full-polished wheel route...I prefer the "competition" look of the as-cast aluminum.

    I can't wait to get my F.Hawks, I got the raw cast finish with machined lip. I too like the "Business" look. I should have mine in a week or so.
