    So my new bug has some shitty wheels. Must have been made with cheap taco bell steel, hubcaps don't even stay on (brother in law lost a cap when it fell off on the highway). So I think I need some new wheels.

    Here's what my options are:

    A) BRM Replica Wheels, around $550 for a set of 4.

    B) Stock chromies with hubcaps. I already got some caps, so it's around $250 for the set of 4.

    I dunno, somebody convince me that the more expensive wheels are worth it :? I think I need them photoshopped on there, anyone up to the task?

    put some 22's on that shit and make them spin. lol not really.

    I say go for the BRM rims. I think they look a lot nicer then the stock rims they gave out.
