I think they look badass, esp on white! As shown here on a 1992 GTP Richard Petty Edition Grand Prix:


Edit:

Found one with blue, and I've seen red as well....

The crosslace are either painted or off of a pre-97 grand prix. The McLaren Turbo GP'* had black crosslace...the off-set is different and the actual wheel is wider. They will fit the bonne, but may protrude out a little too far.

Painted would look awesome, would have to be nice and glossy so it would stand out in a good way.
I like how they did it on the older GPs defintalty something to work from
