Default Snow Tires with 16" Steel rims on 05 SLE

I have a 2005 SLE Bonneville and it has the 17" 5 Spoke Chromed Alloy wheels, and I change them to 16" Steel rims with Snow tires "Blizzacs" on them and I was wondering if the Pontiac Vibe 16" Hub caps will fit on the these steel 16" rims. I think they should, I have the lug nuts from my 93 SSE SC and they will fit on my 05 SLE.

I know that the 16" wheels are not recommended for this vehicle, but they came with the car when I purchased it from a private couple in PA, and they came with the SLE, and I only leave them on for as long as there is snow in Cleveland...

Thanks

TIm

The hub caps should fit. There'* no problem using 16" rims. I have them on my car. As long as your not running over sized brakes there is no problem.

Thanks, do you know anyone with a cheap set of Vibe covers, they look the closest too the ones my Bonnie has now, but in a 17" rim.

I'm also looking for 2005 GXP Exhaust "Dual" tips I can fit to my SLE..

Looked on Ebay but what'* available are not the OEM Stock ones for the 05 GXP
All others look like crap. I would love to get an entire Stainless Exhaust from the same vehicle since the SLE isn't Stainless.

Hmm, I think Rad is down in your area, and I seem to remember him having a cat back he was selling. Try finding his profile and post up a visitor message.
