Default Polo green C4's with aftermarket wheels

I'm about to be purchasing a 1996 polo green LT4 with 39k miles and I would really like to see some polo green C4's with some aftermarket wheels. Please for the love of God, no A molds

I love the original wheels on these cars... the sawblades. What's wrong with sawblades?

Well now I know there are at least two of us that like the original sawblades, however I must say that the pictures of the different wheels look very nice.

OP already said no to the best looking ones.....A-mold. They just look like they belong on there.

I loved the sawblades, in fact one of the things about the C4 that got my attention. However, after 4 or 5 years with them I bought the C6 rims from a fellow forum member and they even had tires mounted, this allowed me to switch them out to compare looks.

It was immediate to me the sawblades looked dated so I got all new rubber and never looked back.

I think the newer style rims, whichever one you choose really complement the look of a C4, just enough to get it out of the 80's or 90's feel.

I found a pic of the 91 wheels I bought at Carlisle back in the day for my 87 vert. I decided I liked Rikens better and sold them to an Aussie from Queensland. He owned a buffing shop and look how he spruced those sawblades up. I think they would look great on a Polo Green C4.

Just about anything other than GM wheels....which would include A-molds and C5/C6/C7 replicas.
Fikse, HRE, Forgeline, etc.: all good.
