I found these at my local Pull-A-Part this week:

But I currently have (and am kinda fond of) these on my car right now:

I can get the Draco's for $160 out the door, and an feeling a bit torn.

What would y'all do? Vintage or more modern?

Beware of cracked or bent aluminum rims . . . . they can be welded or straightened (sometimes) but you don't know how roughly a car in the boneyard was treated (it didn't get there on good behavior alone).

Get them to agree to a discount if you discover damage when you go to get them balanced (in the very near future).

Alloys... better looking, better for suspension, less weight. I was going to say to do a winter/summer arrangement, but then you're in LA...
