Potholes suck. I ran over a deep one a month ago on an overpass/merge onto the highway and took out both driver side tires and wheels. I've had 20's on the car for almost 10 years without issue in both California and Colorado but finally lost the battle.

RIP 20x8.5 (ET 13) Velocity STW-190. I really loved how these looked on the car.

I couldn't find replacement for the out of production wheels, so settled on US Mags Roadsters 20x8. Tires for both are 255/35/20 I'm glad I didn't try for the 9.5's on the back. We had to jack up the opposite end of the axel to get the wheel in, but its inches from rubbing once mounted.

I'm not entirely a fan of the grey but don't hate it and the wheel has nice detail. I may paint the grey black or a light silver. I'd rather it be polished but it has a texture to it that would be a lot of work to remove.

not sure on those new rims, but they certainly ARE different than anything else i've seen so far on a wagon.
I really like the paint job/wood upgrade - looks a bit understated and refined

Thanks.

The woodgrain is blackline walnut reprint made for the 70's Ford Country Squires, the surround trim is black vinyl with a woodgrain texture, so it reads black until you catch it in the light up close.

I'm hoping to finish wrapping the stainless steel trim in gloss black vinyl and put all of it back on the car soon. Just waiting on cooler weather.


As for the wheels. It was a toss up between these and chrome Hustlers which look great but maybe a bit too Baller for my taste. I figure eventually something better will come along and some guy with a 80-90's squarebody will want these used.
