Default any idea how these '04 Grand Prix 16'* will fit on my '98 Bonneville SE?

I've got a set of these available for a great price locally, but am concerned about the offset as I have no idea what the difference may be.

Wheels are 16'* off an '04 Grand Prix shod with Good Year 225-60-16'* as pictured here:

...and my car is a completely stock '98 silver Bonneville SE, currently on stock 16'* with same sized 225-60-16'*

I'm thinking they'd be a nice upgrade since my car needs tires anyways, but I don't want to end up with a goofy fitting set of wheels if they're tucking like a motorhome or hit my brakes or something. Anybody else have these wheels on there car or any knowledge how they fit?

Thanks!

does anybody have any pics (or link to pics) of these wheels on a Bonne?

sorry if it'* a nooB question but i'm not sure what the model wheels would be called for searching purposes.

basically anything off a grand prix, or another bonnie after 1990 will fit onto your car... but unfortunately for some of us, the g6'* g8'* and other new cars are a different bolt pattern

you want to look for a 5 x 115 bolt pattern and be offset for a FWD car, should bolt right up

Just a quick note on GP rims:

They are a little narrower than the Bonneville rims.

Thank you. That was more along the lines of what I was trying to ask.

I know the bolt pattern is the same, I was more concerned with cosmetic appearance if there was any significant offset difference.

i.e., Bonneville stock wheels are et30, those GP wheels are et45, etc. (totally making those numbers up). Sounds like they're close enough and the price is right so I'll try to pick them up regardless, I just was trying to find out what I was in for or see pics of those wheels on my era Bonneville.
