    The front slots on Eve are 14 inch. The lug holes are disintegrating. The rubber is Goodyear, but their "Maypop" series. Those rubbers may pop at any moment. IMG_20180309_201500.jpg

    So US Mag/ Wheel makes new versions of Slots. Ebay/ Summitracing and presto... new front slots 15 by 5 @ $122 each.

    I never was a fan of alum slots simply because they always looked dull. However, I am liking the new shinny version shown above.

    Shiny!

    If anyone is interested on seeing how they would look on your car - have a good set of aluminum 14” wheels – that was taken off of my wagon not long ago – that I will sell extremely cheap.
    If I still have them, I’ll even toss in a new set of lug nuts, as well (but gotta find them, first).
    They look like ones currently on Slant6billy’s car.
    I just don’t know how wide they are.
