2003 ION-3 Quad Coupe
Happy wheel match

I was surfing the other day looking for wheels for my future ION quad coupe (I hate what they are coming with) and found http://www.americanracing.com . If you go to [wheels-wheel match] you can put in your type of car, the color, and then pick which wheels you want to see on it. So far, I'm leaning towards the Sniper (polished, not chrome) but I'm still researching.

I thought people only had '60s flashbacks. ;-)

Some guys about eRic's age are restoring a Chevelle SS396 near my house and it is usually under a car cover, but you can see the Craiger SS mags on it. I think cars usually look best with wheels that are correct for the year of the car, but if you have a really wild custom job, then really nice wheels from any era are fine (and believe me the wheels available today, just like the cars of today, are generally MUCH better than anything from 20, 30, 40 or 50 years ago).

I've got Motegi wheels (owned by American Racing, www.motegiracing.com )... I had some fitment issues initially, where the rim was rubbing against the front brake caliper bracket (on only two of the rims - the other two fit fine). They've worked great since that was straightened out. The Motegi wheels are comparable to AR wheels.

The TireRack has the same type of setup as the AR site does (pick your car, your color, and choose different rims to see on the car). Pretty slick.

The rims Ronal has for the VUE are sweet, they really dress it up nicely. They seem a little pricey... but then again, I bought my rims on sale from, ahem, Sears.

The right wheels on a nostalgia piece make all the difference.

I don't know why, but for some reason I just don't think aftermarket rims look good on a Saturn... their factory wheels are probably the best looking you could get for the body style

Wow, they still have the Bear. Wonder how long those things have been on close out? I've only seen them live and in person once. They look even funnier on a car (Golf based VW Cabrio).
