Which of these wheels looks better to you? #4438571

First picture : original wheels ( 13" x 5.5" ) 185/70R13 Tyres
Second picture : later model ( 13" x 7.0" ) 205/60R13 Tyres

I can only choose one of the 2, because in Spain we have to homologate any wheels that we put on our cars, it's illegal to drive around with wheels that are not homologated.





I hope this is the right board to post this?

Definitely the spokes, not the manhole covers.

The wheels in the second picture are known in the community as pepper pot wheels, i think it describes them perfectly.

If the wheels are the same dimensions and have the same tyres than the original ones, no problem.
If you want to use a different size wheel or tyre, you have to get them homologated through the Spanish equivalent of the American DMV.

FordCapriDriver,

Just want to say I'm glad you are an active member here. I like seeing content/perspectives from other nations here.

And yes the first set look much better than the 2nd.

First set by far. Love the Capris. I owned a 74 2.8L and it was one of the best driving cars.
