Found a clean set locally....stock 16x6.5 5 spoke design....currently have 14x6 spoke design.

:/ I am not sure what to say about this. 16s don't have much in the tire options department. get 15s if thats what you are looking for. As for what the wheels are worth, how the **** do we know if we don't know what they are or what shape they are in?

Well as stated in first post they are clean and in good shape....I usually get michelin ps2 tires for my other cars and they are not available in 14s sooo thought . And why won't 16s they were stock on the later cars.
Idk guess I'll just stick with 14s for now
But $50 for all 4 seemed like a deal but of I can't use them then I'll put that tword roll bar

If you've got the 90-93 daisys and can get a set of stock 16's for $50 I'd do it. I'd prefer some 15's, but IMO the 16's a a definite improvement. I wouldn't be surprised if you were able to sell them later for $200.

I have a set of 14 inch ones on my car but they are not the na dumb looking ones.they where on my car when I got it. They are the 14x6 jj 7 spoke design. They look good on the car I think. I'm going to need tires after christmas. So If I can find a tire I like that will diy my car uk just keep the 14s for now. They are verry light. But then again if 1lb rotating mass is equil to 6lbs sprung weight then 15s would be almost the same as a passenger in the car. I can feel the difference when I go for a ride with my wife (97lbs) on the street. I hear dunlop makes a few 14inch tires that are decent. Sooooo

Find a cheap set of 15s soon and get tires after christmas deal with the weight
Or keep my 14s they look good on the car and there light. Just find a decent sticky tire
