I have always wondered how the 16X8 Grand Prix Crosslace wheels would look on my '97 SSEi, and know that a couple of times each year, someone asks how they would fit their Bonne.
Well, this weekend, I had a local GP buddy with a set of 16X8'* so I put them on.
They are an inch wider and the offset is a little more than another 1/2 inch (25mm vs. 42mm). The extra inch would allow me to run wider tires. They needed some clean-up and they were gold, but I still had high hopes.
The pics don't look nearly as strange as the wheels looked in person. In person, they really didn't look right. No matter how hard I tried to like them, I couldn't.
Also, these set of wheels had 235-60X16 tires vs. 225-60X16 on my stock crosslaces and the lip of the GP wheels extened past the front wheelwell by about a 1/2 inch, so the benefit of running a wider tire would make them stick out even more. (Not a good thing IMO)
Anyways, I thought I would post pics of the test fit so others may look and learn.
