Default GTP wheels on SSEi

Right now I have a set of 6.5" hi-po 5-spoke GTP wheels on it. I had two bent rims and no money to buy tires, so I stuck this set on with so-so tires on it. I had them on my wifes Montana with a little taller 235/60/16. I think they look awesome (from the side) better than the 99 hi-po "turbo" fin Bonne wheels even. But the offset is set in slighty from the 7" Bonne wheels and it looks even narrower from front or behind.

Since I really like the look of these wheels, I think I'm going to find a set of the 94-96 GP hi-po 5-spokes. They are 7", like the Bonne wheels, but have that wide (88-96) GP offset. I was going to use the 8" crosslace (see thread "Crosslace wheel size?") They won't stick out quite as much as the 8" crosslace (they were borderline NASCAR-looking), but still be wider-looking than the stock 7"ers. Heres a pic of the ones on there now

Here'* some more lame-o pics I just took.

I love those wheels on my GTP, especially at night. Not a big fan of them on the Bonnie though, they look better on the GTP because of the lower stance IMO.

i kinda share your opinion, but its your ride, so to each his own. I am really mixed on the look. Day pictures would help.

What I like best about them isn't the wheels so much as the taller tire. It fills in the fenders much better. (235/60/16)
