I've been wanting to try some full wheelcovers on this car for a while, so this is my first baby steps in that realm.

I kept the same size wheels all around and swapped the tires over. The rears are "dirt track" wheels because they're the only thing I could find with the correct offset for my narrower rear end. Plus they were cheap!

Eventually I might make some mild changes to the Lancers, but I kind of like them as-is with the gold wheels. Or try some different covers altogether. Definitely gives the car a more understated vibe.

That looks really sharp, I love the gold rims with your black car- very '50s especially with the spinners!

Looking great with the wheel covers but I personally do not like 3-tone or more than 2 colors on a car and the rims should be color keyed to one of the body colors. With a gold-anodized side trim the gold rims would look good. Just my opinion.

I hear ya, Sid. Gold has been used to add subtle visual interest throughout the car; the grille, the engine, the instrument pods, door panels, seat piping, etc. So it's not completely out of left field.
