When Chrysler meets Saturn

So my dad currently has a 2004 Saturn Vue. When he bought it, it came with the stock 16" steel wheels and hupcaps. Anyways the factory hubcaps are horrible. They are only held on by cheap plastic lignuts that screw onto the lugs. They rattle over every bump or at high speeds no matter how much you tighten them. They had to go.

So I has a few options, ditch the hubcaps, find some factory 16" alloys or go with something totally different.

I chose option 3.



I picked him up a set of Factory 17" 300 Limited wheels. They are a perfect swap. OEM tire size was a perfect equivalent for what he had on the steelies and the bolt pattern is the same. The funny thing is even the hub size was the same. The only thing a bit different was the offset. They stick out a hair more than the old ones but not enough to cause any problems or look funny.

I think they look so much better than what he had. He really likes them too.

It looks like a completely different vehicle, amazing what a set of rims can do.

Agreed. Almost gives it that "not so cheap" look
