Why are there no decent looking rims in 5x115???
It's ridiculous. I've looked everywhere, they're all hideous!!

Supply and demand.

Off the top of my head the only vehicles that I know of that have a 5x115 bolt pattern are FWD GM cars (w-body, h-body, n-body) and the Saturn Vue..

Not exactly cars that people put high dollar rims on.

Yep, but they have a more neutral offset than us, and they poke.

We have a pretty high positive offset, and most things poke. It sucks, cause we would be able to run adapters to be able to mount pretty much any rim if our hubs were an inch or so inboard..

I've been toying with the idea of Corvette wheels, because they have a very high positive offset as well, and would allow us to run adapters without any poke. Only problem is, I think they're too wide.

I love my KV5s... took me a long time to find a set I liked, but it's possible.

Probably. It's turned into a rolling cluster f**k and hasn't been right since the trans rebuild last summer. It's been sitting at the shop for nearly a month waiting for a rebuild of the FUBARed rebuild. When I finally get it back, I'm taking it back to stock and testing the waters to see if I can get what I think is a fair price for the car...

I'll be listing a demod thread as soon as I get the car back. Stay tuned...
