I don't post many pics of my car due to it's current condition, but a few years ago I shined it up and my brother in law (professional photographer) took some great pics for me.

Here's that big ole Riviera Butt...

If someone can help me thumbnail it or something for a quicker load I'd love to figure it out.

Okay. I realized I had no Showroom thread besides this one, so I renamed it and will finally post some pics of my car. I've only been posting here since the beginning... might as well add a few pics!

I just put on new (to me) wheels and tires, Borbet Type E 17x8 with 255/45/ZR17 BFGs. I am very impressed with the cornering improvements.

The rims look nice, did you pick them up used? Isn't that similar to newer Impala rims?

I like those rims alot because they make the Riv look sportier, yet they don't go overboard. I'm interested in something like that, maybe just a tab more conservative-looking. I'm a bit torn when it comes to rims because mine has the 7-spoke chrome OEM rims, which are really nice-looking, but I think they date the car more than I like. I'd also like to get much wider tires than the 225s I have now.

I agree that there is too much wheel gap, but it looks really nice anyway.

lol
I agree that you guys are funny!

Seriously, the handling of the car is like 10 times better. What a huge difference. This is going from my stockers with worn out Michelin Pilots 225-60-16 (which I loved) to 245/45/ZR17s The old Pilots were only H rated, vs the new ZRs, plus the 45 profile is just awesome. They are a little shorter than stock, so the gap is more. I don't think I'm going to lower it since my winter tires will be stock sized too... but I can see where the looks would improve quite a bit. Lowered cars is not my thing.

Thanks a ton for the complements. I've been looking for rims pretty much since I bought the car. I like simple, easy to clean, sporty... these fit the bill nicely. The only thing I would have liked better is if I found them in chrome.

I got a pretty good deal on them used. Borbet doesn't make Type Es anymore. I paid $300, had to have one rim straightened (another $100) and bought two new tires (two of them had bad cracking). TireRack had the tires on closeout sale for $78.00 each, what a deal. My brother works at NTB on the side, so mounting and balancing was FREE and well done!!! So all in all I spent a little over $500 which is still a good deal for this setup.

Thanks for all the complements, I am very happy with the way they turned out!
