Hey does anybody know how 18 inch niche bahns would look on an Impala? My friend is selling them, and says they look good on SS's. They look funny to me though! If anybody has these on their ride could they post a pic of them? Thanks

Dave Jackson in SoCal used to have a set of 20" Niche Bahns on his SS. They are a, umm, "unique" look. Some like them, but they weren't for me.

Dave has since sold them, and gone to 18" Torque Thrust IIs. Just my opinion, but the TT-II's look a LOT better.

When putting rims on a Imp you have to have one with a dish or dish effect to the rims for it to look good. A plate type rim like the Bahns dont cut it. WWW.superbuytires.com Look you up some rims and tire combo.Good luck

Go with your gut man! "Funny" is an understatement. Rice? Yes. Big a** Chevy B Body? NOOOOOO! Ofcourse that is just my opinion.

Make sure they are the right backspace or you'll need to spend more jack on spacers.

I have a set of 20 inch Giovanna Berlins I'm selling in the for sale section. (need to drive in Mexico for work, can't afford to mess up nice wheels)I'm asking the same price as is average for a nice set of chrome 18s. Oh yeah, these have a deep dish design on them that looks great and also have a wider size in the back. If you want to see what they look like, (not to mention check out how much you would be saving) go to www.superbuytire.com and look for them. Anyone looking for some nice wheels should check 'em out!

your pic has to be hosted. Then all you have to do, once it is hosted, is know the exact location of it. You type in
