    Unhappy Should I feel guilty for hating my wheels?

    I have an 02 WS6 w/the polished speedline wheels...i really dont like them..I LOVE the WS6 wheels before mine w/the larger black WS6 centercap and the straigther spokes that go more toward the outside edge...should i feel guilty for this, i feel as if i had a child and am upset with them for having bad teeth or something...

    hawk rims FTW or a set of 00-04 vette rims. they have the thinest spokes

    I am considering powdercoating the spokes black and only leaving the lip polished, it kind of goes against my "dont fuck w/factory wheels policy" but it might help me be more accepting of the bloated 5 spokes...otherwise id want the polished or chrome

    don't worry, i feel the same way! i HATE my wheels... i think the best looking wheel on a 93+ bird is the 97-01 WS6 chrome wheel!!! TT2s look good also....

    if SLP still sold the 97-01 WS6 chrome wheels i'd buy another set asap! (i bought a set for my 95 formy back in about 2001... i wish i kept them when i sold the car!!!)

    EDIT: firehawk wheels look good also... you can buy them from SLP still but they don't have chrome anymore just silver painted

    i like them both, but i think i'm a little more partial to the 97-01 wheels, i know it may sound silly but i like the ws6 center caps instead of the pontiac emblem.

    I like mine (same as yours), but I am considering changing them when I can afford to since a drug dealer where I live has the EXACT same car as mine and people keep thinking I'm him (I have dark tint) and trying to run my off the road and run into me..

    Really though, I think those wheels look nice.

    This is the only reason I didn't get a WS6 in 2001, the ugly new wheels. You can buy the older ones at Lakeshorewheelandtire.com.
