Default Changed up the rims on my Monte

Needed new tires, my parents had a set of 06 SS rims laying in their basement, unused for about 5 years. I decided to steal them and change up the looks on my car a little.

I like them a lot more than I honestly thought that I would.

Yeah, it's definitely nice! I might take my old rims to a company that specializes in fixing up rims, to get them stripped, examined, fixed if needed, and chromed.

Or I might just sell them off, and see what direction I feel like going in, in the future. With what little I drive the Monte these days, these tires will probably last me 5-6 years, so who knows what I'll want to do by then.

I've always kinda liked a wheel that has a fair amount of "face", or "chunk" to it.

That, combined with the 18" size, makes the style of this SS wheel a perfect, up-to-date match for the "big-body" look of the 6th & 7th-gens.

I'm still voting for the other ones, which look more custom. The '06 ones are nice enough, but it looks more thrown-together and not as identity strong IMO. Those other ones chromed would be b!tchin'
