Thanks Jim
Oh yeah, harry, the 20 spokes are not easy to keep clean my friend. Just fore- warning. But they do look wonderful when clean.

Wow, those do look nice. Those will fit a 2000 Bonneville??? I did the math and it shouldn't throw the speedo off too much.

They'll fit . Same bolt pattern 5 x 115mm although the offset is a little different.

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???


oh i thought they were 114.3




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

its840,
your post stated that they are the same bolt pattern.
I did not say you could not use them. we do have members with 114.3 bolt patterns
but they are taking a chance at it. only because they do not sit on our lugs centered
and over time may do dammage

granted the bullit rims look sweet

I e-mailed the eBay member about the 2005 Grand Prix wheels listed a few posts up. He responded that they are 5x4.5 which equates to 5x114.3. I'm assuming they are probably 5x115 and he was just rounding down from 5x4.5275??? Just want to make sure these will fit properly. Thanks.
