Unfortunately when i bought my car my oem saturn wheels were painted or powdercoated black. I dont like the tacky look, so i had these made for my car. They are custom 3 piece wheels

Novas are really hard to find period so it may be impossible to find someone with Novas that wants to trade for your wheels. Might be better to sell your custom wheels outright, and then use the cash to get Nova's when you find them. You could also take your Saturns to a wheel shop to get them professionally powercoated back to silver and then have those to use if you sell the custom wheels before you buy the Novas. And then when you have the Novas you can sell the Saturns or keep them to put back on the car when you sell the car and then sell the Novas for a pretty penny.

What are you looking to get for the the wheels? I'm sure you don't want saturns, that is what I have with 90% pilots.

Are those BOZE wheels?
They look great. I was going to get those wheels, but done with gold centers (black car) for the JPS look.

How much and does anyone know if they would fit on a 93 SE without having to make mods. Very interested as I have been thinking about changing mine for awhile now.

Easy to have the fronts bored out from 58 to 60mm.

Don't let that hold you back.

These are boze wheels.they have the larger center bore, i am running them with rings. As far as selling the wheels, i have contemplated doing so when i sell the car. If i dont get what i want for my car ill sell it with stockers and the wheels seperate. Novas are finitely hard to find! If anyone does want to trade novas for these then please email me

Nova wheels

After much searching (with LotusGarage's help) I finally found 1 Nova to replace the one I destroyed. Your best bet would be to get a custom set of wheels with the Nova look. I am going to sell the set of new saturn wheels I got when I couldn't find the nova.

I have a set of the OZ Nova wheels with nearly new Nitto 05's that I might be willing to sell. They have no history of damage and were recently repainted by Wheel Collision Center in PA. they are pristine! They are currently on my Esprit SE, but I am not convinced I like the look as much as other options. The tires I do like.

If the op doesn't respond, I'd be interested in the wheels

Considering selling my OZ Nova

I can post pics when I get a chance, but they are pristine with only about 500 miles since redo. Also new center caps.

I would consider a part trade for Futuras, Original SE wheels with 16" rears, or original S4 wheels.
