Anyone have any pics of 9c1 wheels on a wagon? I have an all white '95 RMW and thinking about going that route, but want an idea of how it would look.

Here's my old RMW. It got a lot of WTF stares but I loved the look. I think the stares were cause it was loud as balls. People always got out of my way with that thing...

Thanks for the pics. What's the best way to clean them so that they shine. What products should I use?

That photo of mine is right after the wheels were very recently refinished ~ sanded and repainted with rattle can black and new center caps.

I've got them on both my wagons. When I first put them on, I just painted them black with the center caps. I posted pictures on the forum. One member, whose opinion I value, JaySS, said it makes the car look like a beater. I got thinking about it, and he was right.

He suggested paint them silver with chrome rings, polish the center caps and new lugnuts and bolts. I couldn't believe the difference. My wagons are woody's. Non wood wagons look OK with black wheels, but not woody's.

^^ I like that look with just the center of the center cap being chrome [and chrome lug nuts], makes it look better with the trim rings.

lol mike tx: I have that photo of your car on my computer - it's the wagon that my wagon will hopefully one day grow up to be. :)

Except I'm ditching my silver two-tone.

Also, 235/70 tires are .2 inches shorter than stock, so yeah not a huge deal.

235/70R15 was the optional tire size for B-wagons with V92 Tow Pack.

I plan to run 4x 255/55/17 with one 235/70/15 spare.
Looks like there is only a 0.3% error between the two.

28" tires look really good on the wagon and 29" not that bad either, maybe a bit too big but better looking than 27" that are stock Impala SS size.

Code:
235/70-15         6.5in  14.0in    28.0in         87.8in        722        0.0% 
255/55-17         5.5in  14.0in    28.0in         88.1in        719        0.3%
