Very nice, and clean too.

Makes me feel bad for not washing mine since early March. (It is garaged however.)

Here is a picture of the new (getting them used from a friend) 18" chrome rims I'll be getting on my Riv. My current rims and tires are for sale, I'll put a post in the "for sale" section when I get a chance or pm me if you are interested in them. Not sure about shipping them, but I'm sure something can be figured out...

Here is a little teaser pic of my Riv with the new 18" Zinik Z18 Minardi rims I picked up this weekend.

I updated the title thread also so I can just add to this one and not make new threads when I change stuff on the car.

Actually it does get driven in the winter, but maybe only the 3 years that I've owned it. The chrome rims come off and the factory ones go back on in the winter though.

I think I'm the third owner of the car, the first owner may have driven it in the winter, but the second owner who got the car when it was 2 years old never drove it in the winter so it had 8 years in there where it didn't seen snow at all.

I love the way my old rims look on your car Dave, if I didn't have a black riv I'm sure it'd be white diamond like your's. thumbsup

Your car looks great! I like those rims, but actually not as much as I liked the previous rims you had - except that they were too small. I'm thinking of getting the 17" version of those Gnome rims. I want to get my black Riv as clean as yours. Great job!

Steve, the Gnome rims are discontinued, good luck finding them, or caps.

You sure you don't live in Fargo? That looks EXACTLY like my old house and driveway you're parked in. WEIRD.

Really? Positive it's not in Fargo and the house is for sale also, if you know of anybody looking for a place in southwest Minnesota send them my way.

Yeah Steve KMC discontinued the Gnome rim, I won't say that you can't find a set of 17" for sale someplace but you may be looking for a long time if that's the rim you want....

I see some places on the web offering them for sale. Perhaps they just haven't updated their site yet.
