Looks sharp! LOVE the trim rings, but I'm biased I guess ;\)

Thanks guys! I'm definitely a fan of the trim rings too. It's a sharp look.

Very sharp! I used to have trim rings on all my previous 9C1s until I'd swap the SS rims on there. This has crossed my mind but I've read more than a few times that the "shallow" flat wheel edge doesn't like to hold well the trim rings us '03+ guys require.

So far I've had no issues. They've only been on for a few days, but I've had it up to highway speeds and down bumpy roads with no issues, knock on wood .... Thanks for the comments guys!

I have a 2001 P73 and Im trying to decide to get a new chrome grille or the black police one after my GF backed up into my car 2 weeks after I bought it!!! My car is grayish green (ford calls it green, it looks more gray than anything) so IDK if it will look that nice but that def helps my decision in favor of the black honeycomb

I personally think the black looks better. The chrome was just too distracting for me. I think the black accents the whole car a little better. Glad I could help, nice car btw.

I would have kept the wheel covers. My 2001 had centers and trim rings I put on there myself.

Course, the Vic looks great regardless, good job man!
