Heyy all. Yes its annoying ol' me again, lol. My girlfreinds mother has an old kingswood and apparently their restoring it to original condition. Now all of a sudden shes asked my gf if id like her original mags for my car. Id have to polish them up and buy new wheels, but what do you reckon? They're the real deal and all. All opinions are greatly appreciated. BTW my cars a maroon VS, many people have the same colour on this site.

Thanks all!!

*EDIT
the included picture is from google, not the actual mags

yeah mate i reckon you should go for it, why not?, it's not like your forking out 2G for new wheels, and it's something different

but you need to have these tyres:thumbsup: 14775 | Antique Tyres

rip those hubcaps off, grab a can of wheel paint and spray your rims.

dont get those mags. yes they may fit on, but the stud pattern is NOT correct, it is off by about 1.5mm, which is enough to cause problems. the wheel nuts wot seat properly, or your studs will end up bent, and pose the riskof breaking.

save your money, and buy the correct wheels for your car.
