Brian,

Your Rivi not only has clear cornering light lenses (!), but a color that goes beautifully with those standard rims...

It's kinda' weird, but those bone-stock rims are more rare than my top-of-the-line chrome ones!  I think they are a 1/2-inch narrower than the supercharged rims and the chromes, but they take the same tire size and I think they are REALLY good looking wheels!  AND, I don't think they were shared with any other model, like the Park Avenue used the chromes with different center caps.  (Speaking of center caps, I'll bet yours don't break every time you take them off, either...   rolleyes

Mark, interesting observation regarding the standard wheels.  My first thought had been to find a set of the optional chrome wheels in nice condition, and I'm still pursuing those.  But I must admit that the standard wheels have grown on me with this car, and I like the look.

Glad to see yet another Pacific Northwest guy here.  I'm a Willamette University alumni, so have some strong connections to Salem.
