I've got 235/55-R17(stock 00+ size) Pirellis. These aren't the same 00+ 17'*, but the fittment is the same.

That looks awesome !! Thanxs 4 sharing. Any difference in the way the car drives with 17 instead of 16inch ? Did the mpg change ?

I didn't notice any MPG change. The car does feel a little more weighted down and bumps are a little more prevalent.

Hum, I'm not real big on the older Bonnies, But I gotta say those wheels make that car look darn good.

Those rims look great on the 92-99 years, WOW! I would almost trade my chrome t-stars and put those on my 97.
