    Does anyone have a picture of a C body with the 20 spoke Mirada wheels, pictured below?

    Correct me if these are not Mirada wheels.

    Those are actually R body wheels. My sources say 1981 only, others say '80-'81.

    They are quite rare and I don't think you'll find the picture you've requested. They won't look much different than the actual Mirada wheels. If those are for sale at a decent price near you. I'd grab them quickly.

    These have the wrong centers, but you get the general idea.

    those are mirada wheels, ive seen them with light argent, argent, dark argent, blue, white and red accents.
