My Car...Finally!...Fools! 2586487_1_full

We've finally got some nice weather up here and I was able to throw on my new 22"s and emblems. Calvin is p!$$ on 20" in the 1/4 window btw.lol

Here is a closeup of the wheel and emblem:

I don't think I'll be able to damage the tire on the curb thankfully, they were pretty damn expensive. There is a bit of rub on the front of the fender at full lock, but I've pretty much worn the fender away so the clearance is good now.

Here's my interior, don't worry, I only use my visors when it's sunny:

I hope you guys like it and sorry it took so long to get pics up.

Wow, you've put a lot of personal touches on your Riv. There will be none like it, enjoy. Once you get past the shock factor of your unusual rims it almost reminds me of Ben-Hur spikey things on that guy's chariot that messed up that other guys wheels. Neat.

What brand, and what model are they? Are they a two piece? It looks like the outer part is put on afterwards? Do they make noise at speed? How high is the car off the ground with these wheels?

Do the front seat headrests having monitors in them too for the rear seat passengers?

Yes, they are 22" rim size. They "appear" to be larger. No curbs yet. I'd love to see someone try to sideswipe me now! I have no idea of their brand, only stamping is "Made in Tiwan" of course. One piece wheel, I'd say my ride height is about 3" higher. It is slower of course, but I get looks. wink

Road noise isn't any more than stock. No headrest monitors, I don't watch tv if I'm in the back anyways...

very nice. that is definatly unique. i bet those tires were a 6!†©️h to mount!!! i feel sorry for whomever you took it to. i used to hate mounting low profile tires on rims, never easy and it always took several tries to get the tire on the lip, but at least they were easier to seat than the big truck tires/rims. headshot

You guys didn't find anything Foolish about my car?

Honestly you guys are too nice! Maybe I should have found a more "unique" car to use as "mine." lol

I'll hopefully get the real thing up whenever I get a chance to get home and get it cleaned up and do the work that needs done to it.

I will be keeping my little sig picture down there for a while though, it should remind everyone that looks at it how they got fooled on 4/1!rock

Probably because I trend towards conservatism when it comes to add ons and I usually call it when something looks bad. twisted

Yep, I looked for the most "dis, dat, wit, wut, dem" street-talk-type page I could find.

I think the tire rub at the front of the front fender is hilarious though.
