Wouldn't nice narrow wheels be primo in the snow, though? I want to strap up the thinnest, cheapest winter steely set I can find up at LKQ. I wonder what chance in hell I have fitting a FWD offset steel 15 over wilwoods?

I personally don't like any wheel with spoke past the lip, but don't care enough what any wheel looks like to pay extra for looks alone.

They don't make my flatouts anymore! Boo.
