Default curious....93 ssei + aurora rims

ive got a 93 ssei, as seen in my sig....and a set of 95 aurora rims with tires sitting in my garage. i think it would look like crap, but my dad thought it would look good....anyone have any pics or good at photoshopping? im not even sure if the offset is the same, i believe the aurora rims are +42 but i cant remember.

i put one on, and i really like how it looked. since ive got the ugliest rims available on the bonneville, it looked alot better.

BUT......it rubs, on the front. bad. anyone know the offset of a 93ssei'* crosslace rims?? i could get some spacers, space it out like 5mm, but the tire still has 235/60/16'*........do those tires even rub when the stock rims are on??

ive got 2 really good 235/60/16'*, and 2 really good 225/60/16'*. so im thinking ill put the 235'* on back, 225'* on the front. and eventually put new 225'* on the back, if i cant get the 235'* to fit on front.

anyone have some input??

i think my rims offset is about 51mm

LOL! I'm considering doing this to my 94 SSEi. My ghettos need some TLC and I want to put my alloy Aurora rims on the 225'* I have with the Bonneville.

Mikey...PLEASE post pics

ill post pics, mine are silver, and they looked really good with the red, but so do the regular bonneville silver rims, just not our nasty crosslace.

the offset is all screwy though. aurora rims are 51, what are the bonne'*??? i can get a plate, but i need longer studs. anyone know how long the stock studs are, and if there easily changed on a 93ssei? i know some cars are easy, some are a major PITA

also, aurora rims are 16x7.5, adding to even more problems. i think i need to space them out about 3/4", so longer studs are DEFINTATLY in order.
