rarest and hottest wheels for 1st gen

If you could have any wheels for your 1st gen, what would it be? Would love to see what members are rolling on. What to share some pics?

Hottest? I don't know about that - but these certainly helped to 'update' my 84SE;

Click the image to open in full size.

Just to head off any comments over IM - this is NOT my garage! The picture was taken at an RCCAZ car club event a few years back when a Mazda stealership grand opening asked us to bring some cars to fill-in their service bays.

Also, I've since added the Mariah Mode4 front airdam, which looks better to me. The wheels are MB (were distributed by Discount Tire) model 272's in 15x6", 4x114.3 (SE pattern), and aren't available any longer. I've always liked the 'phone dialer' look of the mid-80's Lambo's and Lancia's and these were the closest I could get.

I love any type of mesh. MY 13 by 6s are a bit small, but finding a 4X110 to set me apart from the "X" (or "+") wheels everyone has was worth it.

I know not the name or the brand, but if anyone knows let me know so I can find some damn centercaps.

Rarest stock wheels are probably the Almex ones. Most popular is any type of mesh.
