I still think the stock '02 5 spoke chrome wheels are the best looking on a Bonneville...

Exactly, I hear ya... I would like more rim and less tire showing also...

Too bad Pontiac didn't have an optional 18" version of the stock chrome wheel...

They are real close looking to the 18 " GXP rims, but I dont like the fake little bolts in them. Millies are top end, a grand for wheels and rubber aint a bad deal. 35'* are pricey. Still I have seen the stock GXP wheels on ebay for $700- a set. If you like the look why not check there once in awhile.

Today the only have a single rim posted

they have similar wheels at the tirerack, I too like that style, these are a little more cheaper. They come in sizes 17-20'* and they also have the chrome option avalible for 18'* only.

Hi, I dont mean to steal your thread...

But was wondering if FoxXx96SE wouldn't mind doing a photoshop for me of a stereo setup.... ?

I am having a VERY hard time finding a head-unit that looks good with the rest of the interior....

Thanks!
