In a nut shell those rims look sick on both cars. Enough said! Oh and the 1/2" tire wall size must give that car one of the crapiest rides known to bonneville kind!

Thats a tough call. Personally I think 20'* like GAMEOVER and Bonnalien (I think his are 20'*) are very tasteful. I don't think they look bad at all, I might go as far as to say they look really nice.

Yeah guys who would spend three grand on rims on a Bonnie? I mean there not for drag racing or anything so why surly 1,500 could get you a nice set, but then agian why didn't they fork over 5K and get a GXP with 18'*! I think anything much over 18 or 20 inchs on a Bonnie is over dueing now on a Silverado or Tahoe I think differently!

do it big I guess, I've been thinking about this a little.... I don't think he/ they were really interested in the performance side of the car; Insted, they seen a great looking (and performing) car and decided to make older folks heads turn. Maybe the message is "I can afford this and make it look better and flashier than stock"

You must admit cars like this stand out from the other thousands of "Stock" bonnies.
