Trade or Keep?

ok so i have these 18" rims with some curb rash that came with my 92 Lude when i bought it in August 2010. at first they were kinda sexy but then.. idk have 18s with low profiles and the pot holes.. u catch my drift. Recently i have been seeing the Si wheels the ones that came with the 94-96 lude and idk maybe i would like to trade wheels and tires

But tell me what yall think should i keep em....

Or

Trade em


here are the pics

My rims





or get these



I guess i would also trade wheel and tire for 17s or 16
BTW the wheel pattern on my wheels is unversal 4 lug (4x114 or 4x100)

Re: Trade or Keep?

Hey man, if you're really interested in the Si Sawblades, lemme know. I have an extra set in my garage. Only problem is that there are 3 driver side wheels and 1 passenger side. I've been trying to find another passenger side wheel at a decent price so I can get a matched set and sell them. None of the wheels are bent or damaged. However, they are 15 years old and showing their age. Minor curb rash here and there, and the finish on the wheels is fading. I was going to strip them down and have them powdercoated but I don't have the time any more. If you're interested let me know.

Re: Trade or Keep?

Hmm... thats tough. The wheels you have do look good, but I can see where you're coming with on the rubber band issue. However, I don't thjjk you would have the same wow factor. If you are interested in turning heads of everyone then rock what ya got. If you want guys that know ludes to turn their head get some stock wheels if you get my drift ;)
