Default 2001 SSEi - OEM chrome wheels question

All, if there is one thing that sets my SSEi off is the chrome swirl wheels. I love them so much that I am considering a set for my 1999 Trans Am.

How can I tell if the SSEi wheels will fit my 99 T/A (bolt hole pattern, rim width and height)?

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks,

The Josh

I just figured I would ask before I went through the trouble.

That website says the OE wheels on the SSEi are 14x6. Mine are 17 inch wheels (not sure of the width).

The T/A wheels sound right.

Lol your right. but as you can see the bolt patterns are different.

If you love the swirl look, why not opt for something like this:



It'* an actual factory Pontiac wheel that is pretty rare, I found the replica here: http://www.lakeshorewheelandtire.com.../web_store.cgi $220 bucks a piece though.
I'll try to find a pic of them on a TA, look pretty sweet IMO.

Here they are on a WS6, I think they look pretty sweet, most of the F-body guys either love em or hate em, and I think the majority of them hate em for some reason. Anywho:
