Default 740 Rigel wheels

Anyone use them without the dinner plate on a 240?

Some reason I dig them… they look winter rally-ish. Thinking about picking up a set for my winter rain tires.

They are actually kind of rare, and 15x6 is an upgrade for a 240 (unless it came with Virgos).

I prefer “advanced steelies”, thank you.

Just wanted to see if anyone has done it. Wouldn’t mind Virgos but guys around here want big money for curb rash and 30+ years of caked-on brake dust.
