These are very nice looking. Good choice. I too, am considering changing the wheels on my black 2002. I think the factory wheels are just plain gaudy. I've only had the car two months and have been upgrading mechanical stuff first. So far, I've replaced tires, spark plugs and coils, windshield wipers. both headlight assemblies and fog light assemblies. I plan on going to Vision "Boost" wheels. Like these wheels they are primarily black with machined areas that will accent the chrome pieces on the car.It seems like every once in a while someone asks the question about updated wheels. What looks good? I love my Bird, but I’ve always thought the factory polished chrome looked a little bit “plastic” and dated. My car came with Michelins with loads of tread, but date codes about 6 years old. It drove fine, but there was always that worry in the back of my mind about one coming apart at highway speed. So with the idea of getting new tires, I thought It’d be a good time to try something new with the wheels. At the same time I thought it’d be fun to go up a size. So the 235-50-17s were retired to the basement and 245-45-18s took their place. With only a tenth of an inch change in overall diameter, and 1/2 inch wider wheels, the fit was easy, but it gives it a more aggressive stance. The wheels came with the lug nuts, center caps and new valve stems. My dealer did the install two weeks ago, confirming everything fit and so far, I’ve gotten compliments from everyone. It’s a fresh look but easily put back to the factory stock. Just tossing out a possibility if anyone is considering a change.
