No way the '87 calipers are the same as a '99. I'd have personally shot GM if they had done that, they were bad enough to have rear drums on the SSEi as it was



'87 had smaller front brakes, as far as I know.

Okay '88 to '99. I'm sure they had the same caliper setup. I wasn't trying to prove anything but a simple point, in that his wheels will fit.

The brakes on my 91 are smaller than my 95...

Thr rotors for the 91 are a good bit cheaper too, and don't have the severe warping issue either...

A 16x7 bonneville wheel from 92-99 should fit his 90-91 just fine

I believe that he has 16x6.5 or 16x7 right now on his SE...
