Hey Shayne, I fit a 95.5 airbaged 3 spoke sport wheel
in my Black 5spd. Allen has done the same with his
Black 4.2.....& if I remember correctley the REAL Dave
C had a 3 spoke airbaged sport wheel in his...what has
to be ONE of the nicest V8's in Der States...LOL 5spd
4.2 swap.
 But if you don't wanna go through the trouble then I
suggest getting in touch with Mike
DelTergo...lister....he has non airbaged 3 spoke sport
wheels he sells. I think you would need a hub adaptor
for the non airbag wheels..but I'm sure Mike has those
as well.

 When I was figuring weather or not to stay OE with
the car as far as still being able to retain the
airbag it was a no brainer...the S6 sport wheel looks
HAWT....but the non airbag sport wheels look nice as

 I can send you some pics of my install if you would
like, I all so have pics of Allens install. But if you
cruise over to Motorgeek you can see them for yourself
in my project thread...which by the way is done! I
bolted the last bolt on the front bumper the other day
& let me tell you I like what I see!
 I gotta get a way to host some pics so I can link it
to the V8 list..cause I'm not sure when I post a link
from Motorgeek that everyone can see the pics.
 But I just have a few minor issues to deal with now
that the car is all together...but it doesn't smoke
out the pipes anymore, doesn't leak any fluids of any
kind....& it rev's like a mother! The suspension is
VERY tight/FIRM!! & the Blk/Blk color is fantastic!!
Ramble off.....;-)
