      I really want to like Super Advans, but everything I see them on just doesn't work. They look great on their own but once on a car not so much. Please show me Advans on a car that looks good. Am I the only one?

      I always thought they looked good on 90s JDM, and that's about it.

      I'm sure they are great for light weight and performance, but I hate them aesthetically speaking.

      They work great for 90s JDM. Beyond that, no. It's really hard to pull off the three prong look.

      I bet they'd look sweet on a 1st gen probe.

      Hard to put my finger on it. Maybe it's because they are kinda bland looking with no color. They'd probably look really good with the gold-ish centers. I've always liked Super Advans, but its hard to find a car they look good on.

      SA3s are some of my favorite wheels of all time. super classic and looks right at home on Silvias and NSXs. they also work on Fairladys and Supras.

      This doesn't work for me either. I think you need to have polished rims and machined center, and then a gold colour would look really nice. I think the tires also don't help. You need an aggressive tread pattern. Some slotted or drilled rotors would give visual interest in the big gaps. Ultimately, I think these rims really need 18" to stand out, the S2000 looks like 17".
