Hello,

I just wanted to introduce myself. My friends call me D-Ron so I guess thats what yall can call me. I am very happy to find this site and Im sure I will spend a few hours looking through old posts. I look forward to conversing with my fellow Riviera Owners.

Here's a picture of my car.....

I say 20's as well. Some cars make 20's look small. My one buddy has a 2007 Infiniti G35x with 20's on it, and they look kinda small. I dont know if its just the style or the tire size. Thats my main concern about purchasing 20's for the Riv. I dont wanna look at my riv wit the wheels on and think they are small.

Thanks for the welcome. They are 20" Verde Diamond wheels. I was going to put 22's on it but didnt wanna cut any fender or do any trimming just yet.

By the way I have a good connect on tires, so if you need 20" , 22" inch tires let me know and I will give you the name and number of the company.

The tires are 245/35/20 I also believe that the 255/35/20 will fit also. I can get a good deal on these tires if anyone needs some. BRAND NEW

Sweet! I put 22s on my Impala. I like the look of the 20s on the Riv though.

D-Ron, welcome aboard. What year is your Riv? The portholes look decent on there, but I couldn't bring myself to put them on mine. Rather, I'm planning to remove some excess stuff like that.

The Rivi is is 98 SC with currently 89,000 miles. I had a Buick Lesabre with rims and she broke down awhile back so I picked this car up from my moms friend for $4500. Its super clean except a few dings her and there.

Nice deal! I got my 98 last summer with about 100k, no dings, excellent paint, perfect interior, runs great, for $6k. At the time I thought the price was high, but couldn't get the seller to budge a penny on price. 9 months later it seems like it was a pretty good buy for me after all. burnout
