Taken inside my garage today---too much flash on these, or not enough on some others; these are the best of several shots. Outdoor shots would have been better (stay tuned). Although the pics suggest otherwise (reflection from something behind me I believe...) the chrome is perfect-as are the black spokes and center section.

Nice wheels Lee!
Are they just bolt up, or have you got spacers on?

Wheels are no longer on the car since it's up for sale.

Just painted these gold recently, which looks much better IMHO. Gets me that poorman's Compomotive MO look. They actually look much better on the car than in the pics, but take a look:

Guys from the local group have asked me this a few times. Mine is the same grey cladding w/strato silver. Is it unusual?

A guy with his own site just happened to take a few shots of it while I was at work. I figured it was a wreck, but thanked him for the opportunity.

I traded off a set of stock '97 cobra wheels from a car I'd sold a few years earlier and didn't know what to do w/the wheels. Turns out, one guy wanted them and would swap for a set of E0's. Some wheel paint and clear coat really has done wonders. 8)

I can't recall ever seeing a silver '89 before - I'm inclined to say it wasn't offered, but that's just unfounded speculation on my part since I've never seen one. Is your VIN tag still on the door jamb? There's a factory color code on there.
