i've been searching for a couple of days for a set of rims. what's the consensus here on which 4 lug rim looks the best. i've got 8 spokes right now, but really don't like them to much. let's see some pics of 4 lug rims!

Depends on what you like. Personally I like good old Chrome wheels, but wider than stock.

I've never really liked most alloy wheels. For me, I think one of my favorites over the years was the steel special edition Baja Champion wheels that VW sold in the early 70s (when they are in good condition that is)
