Would you run these wheels?

Mixed feelings about them. Paint, polish or trash?                 Plus I wanted to try a resized photo.

Hey thats not bad and alot easier than polishing. These came on the car when I got it, I would not have picked them out but its kind of a challenge to see what can be done to them.

I would run them. I always say its the height and width of the tire that make it look good. Are they 13s, 14s 15s?

14s by 5.5, I looked it up they actually are factory fairmont wheels. The tires are 205 70 r14 btw. But they are dry rotted and I will be replacing them soon maybe i'll play with tire sizes.

Some powdercoat and polish would make those look good.

When I saw the picture of just the wheel I thought trash but after seeing the wheels on your car I would definitely polish them.

Thanks for the replies, does anyone know where I could find some caps that would work? Mike
