Default will these rims fit my 95 Bonneville?

I have found these rims that are in my price range and look pretty good. Only problem is that the guy has no idea what them came off of. Can anyone recognize them? Markings on the back are: 16 X 6.5 JX46 9595778. The long number is a casting number according to my local pontiac dealer so no luck there.

As long as the bolt pattern is 5x115.

The rim is about .5 inches narrower than stock as well, which I believe is 16x7.

Those wheels are off a Pontiac Torrent. They have the same bolt pattern as the Grand Prixs and Bonnevilles (5x115). Just figure out the tire size and post pics when they're on

Well I have the hubcap wheels right now so they might be the same width. I wish they were wider but for now, they might be ok. Maybe later I can get some 18'*.
thanks for the info,
Jay

i'll second the fact that they are off a torrent. we have them on my mom'* vehicle. just an FYI, the insides are a PITA to keep looking nice because they like to corrode and adhere brake dust really easy!

Well, I picked up the rims this weekend for $100.00 for the set. They are in REALLY great shape. No scuffs or scratches. Not even as much as a wheel weight mark on the outside lip. There were some small weights on the inside but it looks like they were the only one ever on them. Washed them up and they look brand new!!! So here are some pictures of trying them on the car.

I even started the car and ran the wheels in drive and turned side to side with no issues.

I then started the brakes and found the rotors had been turned way too far the last time the brakes were done and the caliper piston was extended all the way out. The front pad had less friction material than a piece of copy paper!!! So it was new rotors and pads for the fronts. The rear shoes looked brand new and the drums looked ok. Found out the rear brakes were not adjusted anywhere near where they should be. Got the drums turned and installed then adjusted the rears where they just made a slight drag. Did a full brake fluid flush with new fluid and stops GREAT now!!! Money spent $103.00. This includes 6 cans of brake clean, (yes, I’m obsessed) a large bottle of brake fluid, and a Gatorade. While I was at it, I rattle caned the wheel wells satin black rustoleum since there was a copious amount of overspray from previous body work. I also painted the calipers and drums with 600 degree Barbecue spray paint. Looks great.

So I have ordered tires and an alignment to be done today and ordered 20 lug nut covers off of ebay for $15. With the exception of Freon, she is ready to ride. I plan on putting a few hundred miles on it to be sure nothing else will fail. Then the following paycheck with make it COOL with a complete Freon charge.

More pictures to come. Thanks for all your help.
Jay

Not bad for $100 wheels. I know they're small but at least they're not hub caps!! Can't really afford some 18'* or GXP'* right now so they'll have to do.

Bad news is that my wife drove it to work this weekend and smelled a bad brake or clutch smell when she got there. Since it'* an automatic and she says the driver'* wheel is dirtier than the passenger one; I figure one of the calipers is sticking. So much for those new brakes huh????

BTW the Bonne is replacing our current work vehicle:

1995 LeSabre 184,000 Miles Series I. I work during the week and my wife works on the weekends; so it goes to work 7 days a week, 40 miles each day. Great car, just not a Pontiac. Besides, the Series II has A LOT more power!!!! It will be for sale as of Monday. $1750 OBO in case anyone is interested.

Thanks,
Jay
