    Well, i decided to ditch my white walls for a while. Now i am trying to decide if i want to run my spider caps or the original hub caps. I will have them back on the car by late tonight if the tire shop finishes the mount and balance.......

    Hard to definitely say without seeing them on the car, but I'm guessing the spiders.

    For what it's worth, I like it.
     
  6. Been pondering doing it to mine for awhile now.
    I like it, kinda has a sinister look to it.

    For the cost of another set of rims, you could have it both ways as to whatever mood you're in.
     
  12. That looks so rad! Can't beat black wall bias-plys on a black car!

    Its a change, but to be honest, I liked it before better if your gonna run the caps and black walls. (Sorry, just my .02)

    It looked good with the caps off, but it needs chrome bearing caps if I did that......

    Also, I like the black steel wheels too. But the set I have is the original set and they are pretty rough if you look at them up close.

    Personally, I like whitewalls better on these cars. Esp your car, it breaks it up a little. Your car is dark, without much trim. I think the whitewalls ad to it, but if you like it with the blackballs, then enjoy it!

    I agree with you cretin. I was just looking for a little change in appearance. It's easy to change back if I ever want too.....
