So, I recently bought myself a boat, it's a 1984 Buick Lesabre and it's second night in my driveway, someone has already stolen the passenger side mix-match hubcaps I planned on replacing anyway.

But, now I'm concerned about replacing them, should I just roll with steel wheels showing, or get true wire replacement wheels.

What would you guys do about this?

It's a white sedan with a black top, so I don't think steel wheels would look too bad all around if I kept 'em clean with the white wall tire

You the same guy that got pulled over in it already?
>>
It's a 84 lesabre it probably looks like shit already just go steelies.


If you have to have it look good, save up for actual wheels

yeah lmfao

Yes, steelies are badass. Bonus points for white wall inserts. They're rubber rings that glue onto your current tires to simulate white walls, cost like 50 to 80 bucks a set.

Damn, that looks good. I don't know why you wouldn't just buy white wall tires to begin with though.
>>
>>14224082
Because it's more expensive unless you need new tires anyway. Also it limits your choice.

If you live around a lot of dindus, I'd suggest just buying cap locks.

I had these on my vintage chebby :

I never understood the point in balancing a wheel if you just slap a big heavy wheel cover on it.

The police explorer vehicles in my town all have steel wheels, but they stay glossy and well painted with just a chrome center cap.

How can I achieve that same look on buick steelies?

that product does nothing to prevent the youth from mangling the hubcap during his course of business
