    Here's an example with turbines... I saw a similar one at a service station near me (Triad, NC) a few days ago, and thought the 93 Cobra reproduction wheels look great.

    Oh, and "thatdudeinblue" (David Patterson) reviewed the car when it had snowflakes. Interesting before/after change: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oncx20RWL_A

    I agree (and they were similar to the factory issued MN-12 "fan blade" or turbine wheels). Here's yet another video of the same car: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqAY0IppaZQ

    I agree, they look better on there than I had imagined.

    That's the car that caused me to like the 93 Cobra wheel as an option. Especially since Thunderbird center caps work in them.

    In the video it says he used SC center caps?... Must be a slight difference?

    Also, the 14" 8 hole wheels look sorta good. I still have this car, too. It was my first car, my first vehicle was/is a Jeep J10. Still own it too. LOL
