Keep em stock. The wheels on the 02 look great.

if you have both cars together, why not just take off one side of the 02 car and put it on the 97 car and put the rims from the 97 car on the 02 (one side only so less work)

That way, you can walk around the car and decide for yourself.

Put the chrome 5 spokes on the old Bonne, and the bigger ones on the newer Bonne.
