i ran 13's on all my metro's but 1 it had 14's. those are pro-line wheels . came from pep-boys (ebay) for $25 each . not sure what they weigh but with 175/50r13 tires they are much lighter than stock. the wing was to help when pulling a box trailer . it would only go 65 without it . with the wing i could keep up on the highway 75 .

Would you sell the rims seperately? If they're 13's, true and round, I'd be interested. I wouldn't need the tires though. Send me a PM if you are.

PS - Good to hear about the wing's aero benefit for trailering. I hadn't considered that.

Looking at the Proline style wheels on pepboys.com, they list the 13 inch rim as 5.5 inches wide. The stock Metro rims are 4.5 wide. Anybody know if that would present a problem for continuing to use the stock 155/80/13 tires?

Darin, according to this, your tires should fit on 5.5 inches wide wheels.
