Those look like 88-91 SSE wheels to me. There are two types of SSE wheels for that trim line. The one pictured is more rare. Lemme see if I can find a pic....

Thanks for the thought. The only thing the seller was accurate about was that they are "like new". The stainless outside rims are absoutely pristine. There is not a single nick on the lacing. no way these wheels saw more than a month or two in action.

My advice is to (1) See if you like them anyway, -like if they fit and all, or (2) Go ahead and press your case with eBay and continue pressing the seller for a refund if you return them, or (3) re-sell them yourself locally or on eBay.

I've had really good results recently with eBay refunding 100% money for an eBay auction paid with Paypal where the seller failed to ship after getting paid. I was pretty amazed that the system worked, actually.

I love your seller'* reasoning. He'* having financial difficulty, so that makes it okay for him to screw you? That'* a riot!

That almost demands bodily harm, right there, in my opinion!

Well now you probably have cause for a case with eBay, depending on how he represented it in the auction text.

Factory Pontiac Bonneville Gold Rims

16" X 7" Gold Webb Design
Full Set of 4
These rims were used on years 1993 to 1999

Wheels are like new No Center Caps
5 Lug 115MM Bolt Pattern.

and picture

I called the NSA (only kidding) and found his phone number. He said it was "unfortunate" and had no reason to rectify the situation. I said it wasn't unfortunate, it was outright fraud. He still didn't get it.

Let ebay and Paypal handle it, I'm done with this guy.

FYI. This is the first time I have had to file and I have come across some semi-spooky stuff re:Paypal. If a seller is resistant to rectifying a problem, Paypal can not only freeze his Paypal account, they can go into his attached bank account and take the money. Some people who claimed they don't keep any money in the (checking) account except to pay bills, have had their accounts encumbered by Paypal. I didn't realize Paypal had such clout.

Back on topic....

Does anybody know of any 1993-1999 Bonnevilles that have other than the 5 lug 115mm configuration with the standard fwd offset? It will help me quicken the process with the investigator and bunk crazyguy'* claim that he took them off of his Bonneville. I'll search the site and do my own due diligence, but if somebody knows off the top of their head, i would appreciate any confirmation. Thanks guys.
