Keep a eye open in the for sale area. I see some pop up in there from time to time. You can also tray local salvage yards. That way your not dealing with high shipping costs.

All the Bonneville wheels from generally 92-05 are interchangeable. I'm aware some 87-91 Bonnevilles had 14" wheels, and that would not work with later models because of brake size. The 16" and 17" wheels have the same bolt patterns and possibly the same offset. You would just need new tires with 17" wheels, or 18" wheels if you get the ones from the GXP. I have 16" chrome Cadillac wheels on one of my Bonnevilles, and they look good. I'll try to find a picture.

Yeah, you can get some nice, shiny wheels for pretty cheap at a JY. My friend got very average, not-shiny, 15" Caddy wheels for $50 with tires. As long as JYs don't want more for larger chrome wheels, you should be set. Maybe as long as you plan to pay $100 for just wheels, you should be able to find a deal.

best bet is to look for something that has a 115x5 bolt pattern with a 40mm offset... thats factory for most of our rims and will pretty much guarantee a perfect fit without rubbing or causing problems... just dont go too big on rims or tires cuz youll loose turning radius or rub... 3800performance.com has some rims and tires for sale but theyre pricy... 17s with the right spacing and 245/45/17 tires i believe thats right... but theyre set for 17s to match the normal tire diameter so your speedo wont be too far off either... thats another big thing to look out for unless you wanna recalibrate your speedo afterwards

Try finding some on E-Bay but shipping can be high.
