Remember, you heard it here first. :)


Just kidding!​





But considering what has happened in the last 12 months

there is just no telling what in the world the future may bring.

Little White Lightning... the Skyvette... has some shiny new... old shoes.

hope the cops are not going to give you a hard time for having the wheels sticking out to far from the outer edge of the wheel fender. but like the look of it. did you have to use spacers in order to fit them on.

Wow...I really like that.

In general I hate most of the custom wheels that people seem to love, but that looks really good, especially with those fat tires.

You should see about getting some Saturn logos for the center hubs. It just doesn't seem right to have a Vette logo there.

Heh heh, love those corvette salad shooters :D

Bet the 1980 series would also look great:

Yeah, but from a distance
these emblems look line a thick line across a thin circle..
With the cfours there's just no familiar crossed flagpoles.
Already keeping all the other OEM Saturn logos in place.
Was thinking about going with maybe ...
something Vauxhall .... for SKY heritage.

Fitment fail. I really like those wheels but order to run them like that you'll need to slam it, buy smaller tires, stretch them, and possibly pull the fenders. That would look mean but right now it looks horrible.

They are running just as they appear. These dress shoes will not see a dragstrip and will not enter any autocross events. Front tire/wheel weight is about the same as stock at right around 52lbs, with the rears a couple of pounds more. These Skyvette spats are mostly for zooming around town. For cross country trips she'll go back to a more conventional set of jogging shoes.

I'm not talking about how they drive, I'm talking about how they look. Poked out wheels are cool but they have to be ran right. It should look like this:



Right now it looks like a ghetto low rider:

Oh man, that's cold... :lol:


But really, they don't stick out that far.
That's because you're used to them... BTW, are you really running with blue turn signal bulbs? I'd love to go wider, but not if it made my Sky look like a slotcar.

Oh, no way. They are Sylvania Silverstars. They appear bluish when off but are amber when in use.

I think the wheels look awesome, regardless of if they poke out a smidge. And they look nothing like a "ghetto lowrider", geez. The Vette they came off had big hips and long plastic nose, so they sure as hell look better on a Sky. ;)

The fronts are out a bit and the rears are out quite a bit more...
and that supposed wheel well gap... is a whole 6mm more than stock.
