Mooneyes, smoothies. They're just wheelcovers that you can either screw in to the wheel, or clip on like a hubcap. You'd be better off with the screw in kind.

It would look better than the rather ugly silver painted wheels.

I think the aluminum mooneyes would look good to go with the rounded look of the riv...very unique.

I can get these 18's for 1100 after tax. Tires included with roadside hazard assistance. Normally priced at 1600. They have sort of a Z06 look to them. Good deal or should I keep looking?

They sorta look like something you'd find on a truck. It's hard to say how they'd look on your car.

What kind of tires are they?

I think 18's would look good. The 20's on the CarDomain page that Jim found are TOO big! Have them put your Riv on a lift and try a wheel before you mount them to see if you like it.

Now I think that looks SHARP! thumbsup

But I have a preference to five spoke wheels, I have them on both my Harleys'.

What rims are those? Damn that looks good! Will those really fit a riv or did you photoshop them on there? ...good job by the way. I'd give you an "A".

PostSubject: Rims that best suit the Riv....   Fri Apr 06, 2007 5:00 pm

Im new on the site, and Ive noticed that most, if not all people have left on the original rims. Is this some kind of unspoken Riv rule? If not what rims have you guys seen on a Riv that look the best to you!?

Rims are cool, I would just rather spend that grand or so on go fast modifications, personally.



bow if you get those, however, I will worship you a little bit.
they are moda MD2's 18x8 - can be found on tirerack.com
The best i've seen so far, IMO but rims are really pretty diverse so I wouldn't be surprised if there were others that even I like better.
