I agree with all of you. I can't stand the big rim look. I think it'* more of a status symbol fo the people that buy them. If you can drop tons of cash ( as in close to $1,000 a peice) on something as silly as those rims on a car, you must surely be raking in the big bucks. I see this on other boards too. Especially a Riviera forum I go to often. atleast once a week there'* a thread titled "can I fit 22'* on my riv?" Can't wait until this "fad" is over.

well i agree but 20'* are probbaly the biggest rim that looks good one cars
then again i could care less what my car runs in the 1/4 its far from fast stock so ill stick to the luxury aspect of it
if they fit all the up in the wheel well they look good like this

Hey guys I do know this much the top one with "GXP" as you call it is actually only an SLE! I can tell by the badge on the side. Just a little tid bit for you, for 2004 the SLE looked like the 2000-2003 SSEi like they always have. The GXP styling for 2004 and 2005 didn't change but for 2005 the GXP body panels is shared with the SLE. Sorry I had to say something!
