Default Aftermarket Wheels For The GXP

OK, Who'* got them and how much did they cost? I want to see pics!

I have two wheels with some scrapes and I'm checking into my options. I do like the stock wheels and I found this place that sells OE wheels pretty cheap (245.00ea).

http://www.wheelcollision.com/pontiac3.htm



If I can find some nice aftermarket wheels for around 500-750 I would consider that route. I would keep the same size rim so I can use the tires I have.

Anybody else have any scraped wheel issues? My care came with them so all I can do is replace them to remedy the situation.

American Racing Wheels are a goodbuy. The ARW'* I bought for my LaCrosse CXL were 800

I chose Alloy Technologies wheels for my GXP, They set me almost a grand.

Nice wheels. I wish I could find the stockers in chrome. I have chrome wheels on my other ride.

Alex, this was originally posted in the mechanical section, and was moved here. In the future, just PM the Staff member with your question instead of posting off-topic.

You could always polish you stock wheels. These are some that I polished off of my 00 GTP. They were painted just like yours from the factory..... took alot of work, but I think it paid off.

Yep, they turned out nice. I assume you had to remove the tires (or, at least break the bead). How did yo do it? Was it a kit?
