Looks like crap, you should give them to me and spare yourself of humiliation in the G3 community. I'll bear the burden for you.

i think GM should of offered these wheels for our cars. they look right at home...
mine when i got them


after the polishing


mine are off an 81. they are polished from the factory and do not have the black center hub area. i did go with the caps with the black instead of the all chrome. it accents very nicely.

i sent mine to a polish guy @ 60 a wheel. was well worth it. he not only polished them,but he made a new outside lip because they had a little curb rash. they have been on the car since 2003 and still look as good...

That's because you bring them inside for the winter & prob wrap them in blankets :-D @ $60/ea + what U paid, think I'd do the same.

I used white diamond polish. Can get it at Advance for around $15 a bottle. Best stuff I have found. I would love to find someone to do work on mine like yours 1973454Monte. The lips on mine are also chewed up pretty bad. Would happily pay $60 a pop. And those are the best lugs I could find. Got them off ebay and they are cheap, already chipping away.
