Don't hate me because I'm ignorant...
But can someone please explain or perhaps show me the difference between "ghetto golds" and gold cross laces? I think I have cross laces, so what are th GG'*?
And would a grill from a 96 and up SSEi fit my 95 SE?

Gold cross laces are referred to as ghetto golds. They are the same wheel...unless I'm missing something

The grill will bolt to the hood, fitment after that is the issue. The headlights between those years are different as is the bumper. There are a couple here I think ...I'd suggest hanging in until the search bunnies can find you a picture or two.

I thought that maybe that was the case but I have heard so many references to both I thought there was a difference.

I don't have them, but I have the ghetto gold front emblem and gold lettering on the center caps.

At least back when I first joined, we referred to ghetto golds as the original gold crosslace like I have on my white 90 SSE, the ones with the HUGE center cap that covers the nuts. They are now known as the original ghetto golds, and the newer crosslace are referred to GG also.

Thanks all. At times I thought they were the same, then I thougth different. I saw some pics of ones called GGs but they appeared different. Perhaps they were the 90'* original.

I still liked the original GG'* that were on my SSE. But they were not worth salvaging.
I can't say that I don't like myTS'* tho
