How do you think these would look on our 87-91'*?

Listed at 99 for the $16" rims and $109 for the 17"'*

I want them on my SSEi when I get it, but was curious to see what they may look like on our model

For some reason I liked these on the 90-91 bonnevilles... They just looked good... And it seems that some of the loaded up chevy *-10'* have rims that look quite a bit simmilar to these..
Those cost $153 on AAArims.com

You get a $25 credit if you buy all four.

Don

I found those rims at my local wrecker yard for $200 CDN..the kind you want the top of line SE rims.

They looked muddy but otherwise in kick *** condition. The caps however, struck me as odd...they are the same ones I have on mine. The stainless steel cap with the engraved Pontiac symbol.

Does that sound right? Oh... dumb question would 16" rims fit a 235/65/R15 tire....somehow I doubt it..or could they jam them in?

ya, they were, the rims were kinda muddy and I needed to by the air valve separatly but nothing a good hose down couldn't fix.

The centre cap worried me though, I think he was mistaken, we were talking about my 18 slot rims at the same time. Bah, I'll just stick with mine for now.

Can't afford to put new rims and rubber on my car right now :(
