Hate is a strong word, I guess it fits my sentiments here.

I always thought they looked alright on the second bus, I think they were powdercoated grey?
Other than that, they usually look like crap.

First thing I would have done would be lose the stinger.

I guess I'll be the dissenting opinion here but I think they look pretty good. I think the circles/curves in the wheels fit well and accentuate the curves of a split bus. In fact if any of you have a nice set I'll give you$100 for them! Wink

I think they look pretty cool on a bus, but not that good on a bug...

Personally I think it depends on the vehicle and what stance it sits at in order to look right or wrong. Stock height bus with em on it, ummm no. Slammed, well maybe.

I kind of like them, much cooler than empis.I've got some tele-style wheels I bought off ebay. They're a wierd bolt pattern, ie not VW, Porsche, Ford or Chevy, but are 6 by 14s, anyone know of the best place for custom wheel adaptors?
Or maybe I'll paint the centre of my stock wheels black and add baby moons....
