My favorites are the metric phone dials, visually. But, not a big fan of the metric limitations... $250+ for a tire employing 1985 tire construction technology.
So, I am perhaps considering a similar style rim. None floating around this side of the pond, as they came on A-R 156s and 147s. Used ones easily found in Europe, tho.
Need to study these a bit more sitting on a GTV6 body to decide. The rims are drop-dead gorgeous, and the GTV body is to my liking. But, sometimes, marrying two pretty things into one, does not equal a beautiful singularity. Not 100% sure yet, that these rims rhyme with an '80s body style? If I hang a picture of the two together on the wall to study this... I may end up just getting used to the combination, and calling it a deal. Better to not let it get that far before deciding.
These can be had in 16" and 17". Think I lean toward the 16s. Not so large that I lose much ride cushioning. But, just enough to make the cornering a bit more sensitive. That's if I keep the overall height of the tires the same as the stock 15s. Don't want to be pushing the limits of what the wheel wells can digest in corners and bumps.
