How come nobody likes the stock "cross lace" rims? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

I love the crosslaces. They're the lightest aluminum wheel produced for us. And make some changes to your brakes to prevent the dust to begin with.

They're EASY to clean if you use ceramic brake pads.
