Default 17" wheel question

Hey Guys--

First post on here. I have recently purchased a 2000 SE with only 13,900 miles on it. The 16" aluminum wheels look fine but I wouldn't mind upgrading to a Pontiac 17" wheel.
Being new to the Bonneville world, I'm wondering if anyone could give me any stock Pontiac 17" wheels that will match up. Perhaps off an SLE??? I've done some shopping on Tirerack.com but I think I'd rather put stock wheels on it if I could. Wouldn't necessarily have to be off of a Bonneville. I have found several Bonneville wheels on eBay but just want to make sure what will fit up so I thought I'd ask the experts.

--Thanks guys

Search "Bonneville Wheel" on eBay. Most of the more popular (or "better looking") rims are either stupidly expensive or sought after. Keep an eye out on eBay and in the For Sale section here, and I'm sure you'll find something eventually.

First of all, welcome to the club If you could hit the profile button in the upper right hand corner and add in your year and model to the signature, it will help people assist you when you have problems in the future.

Secondly, You just need to make sure the bolt pattern matches. I believe it is 5x115 with a 38mm offset though the true gearheads will chime in shortly and concur or correct me

I do belive you will be able to find a set of Chrome Swoopies on Ebay, the nice looking 2000+ SSEi wheels.

5 x 115 is correct..... I don't know the part number of my rims, or else I'd tell you! I'll ask Gumball and MarkWB if they know....

well since ive purchased my grand prix ive read that the mustang and the gp have the same bolt pattern. so the bonneville and the grandpirx have the same pattern. so thus a mustang rim should work on the bonneville correct???

NO...... mustangs (or any ford product) are not the same bolt pattern.
