I had several 89-96 GM B-body cars (full body on frame). They came equipped with 15" 70 sidewall tires.
Back then cops referred to their cars as curb-jumping-height.
Meaning in pursuit they could hit a curb and not bend the rim and continue, while as a civilian or a tech could somewhat get underneath the car.

I miss those days of full size cars looking good with 15" wheels with the 17" being the sporty version.

I had plenty of Caprice cars with 15" rims, one with 17" Impala SS factory rims, then moved to the Dodge Magnum with 18" and now I'm here with the T-Rex with 18".

Next time you see a 94-96 Fleetwood with the LT1 admire their 15" factory wheels and the curb height.

I take it back on the GM poor concept design as I just saw this BMW in person, so the new ugly award goes to.........

The only thing that I liked are the wheel valve caps as they didn't design them LOL.

Yeah it's a little hard that the same company that made the i8 came out with the i3, but I had never seen one in the wild and unfortunately it's ugly at any angle lol.

Okay, groovy (as we used to say back in the Electra 225's heyday). So they're talking about 400+ miles on a charge for this "Ultium" battery, but what they never talk about is how long it takes to fully recharge the battery when you're on a long trip. Who wants to spend an hour or more waiting at a charge station -- assuming that you don't have to spend time hunting around to find one -- on an already exhausting 10 hour trip from NY to NC, for example?

You would have a hour of quality time while charging to read Buickforums, text, email, FB, Instagram and bond with the family LOL.
