Default Grand Prix wheels on an 87-91 Bonneville? Anyone have pics?

I was wondering if anyone had a picture of GP wheels on an 87-91 Bonneville? I would like to get either the torque star wheels, or the 5 spoke wheels (the thick spokes). I think the torque star wheels would look awesome, I would like to see some pics so I can talk myself into spending the money

Thanks!

I don't have any pictures, but I do have an opinion...

Personally, I think that the thick 5-spoke GP wheels would look better, just because they would do a better job of hiding the fact that we have drum brakes.

But they would both look good, I'm sure.

I am referring to the wheels on the red GP shown above exactly, I think they would go great with the lines of the car. I just got a factory SSE spoiler today in the mail today, that should add to the look if I can ever get the wheels! Can someone photoshop with the red GP above and an 87-91 bonneville?

Any other opinions?

I suppose you are going to need a car to PS the wheels onto, huh?



IMO, there is no beating these wheels.

I like those wheels on SSE'*, but without the ground effects, I don't think they look as good. Getting kind of excited to see what those wheels may look like on there. I drive through way too much snow to put ground effects on, does anyone agree with me on the look?

I'm surprised, at the amount that a decked-out SSEi costs, that it took until 2000 for rear disc brakes to even come on a Bonneville. =\
