thank you 98riviera98 it is white diamond dust not white pearl. I heard somewhere that to get such paint on a Riviera (any GM car) you had to pay $500 extra (this is a Cadillac formula paint) read here:

I bet these rims would looks a hell of a lot better it they were NOT chrome. A satin silver like my stock rims would problably work better with the Riviera and save the huge amount of chrome for something that can't hide it's sporty side.

I think chrome rims of this style and others with a lot of chrome surface just rub some people the wrong way giving the majority of us the impression that the person might be just some kid who likes flashy things.

Some people (like myself lol ) will try some different combos and look at prices and beyond that consider the effect it has on people.

It was really a chore choosing the green I picked but to this day I will get some really sincere compliments but there are others who will right it off as some kid and his flashy color. You tend to tune into to the positive and F- the rest. smile

I don't know why you'd want to waste your money on 2-spokes, when you could have the newest design... the 1-1/2 spoke:

Don't forget to put some tire behind the spoke on the front wheel, AA. Tsk, tsk.

If they made those though...I would buy two sets...

On an entirely unrelated note, anyone ever play Moon Buggy on the Commodore 64? That was an awesome game! I ruled at that game. I bet I would rule at riding this guy's whip too, though there is nothing about it's appearance that would make me think Moon Buggy driving skills might apply.

I'm not sure. Googling around suggests there was a genre of similiar games, and on the C64 it was called Moon Buggy.

if your buddy's Talon is red, that problably who I saw. It was what I thought was an Eclipse; same generation. Ask if he's been to Boston in it.

Is it blue, green, or dirt? I can't tell...but I don't think it's red. Sorry Andy.

I knew they weren't gonna be cheap, and I don't have money to throw at my car, but that's a great price for them.

For $1500, I could get another Riv lol

It's easier just to steal them off someone elses car (joking).

You should be able to pick some up cheap. When I first got my riv, I was seeing a lot of these rims (on Denali's and the like). They look both cool and annoying while driving in the sun.

I remember playing a game called Moon Lander for the C64. Perhaps moon buggy was the sequal...
