I want chrome torque stars! Actually, I would love gold but I assume those were never made. Were there ever gold swoopies? Or just the GG'*?


Gold TS were never made nor were the swoopies

and the Silver Crosslace Still rock




There is however a 5 star rim that was made for the GP in gold, which is similar to a TS. They weren't that popular, so there weren't that many made. There is a black GP with these rims, and I have seen a few of them by my work. They're definitly not aftermarket, they are an OEM. I'll have to get a pic the next time I see it.
Silver cross laces are cool, no doubt. I would just prefer gold wheels because of the green car.
And, I would love to see the gold GP wheels.
I am also seeking a gold exhaust tip, if anyone knows where to get one.

I absolutely love the GG'*. They look excellent on a red car, gold car, green car, any color car!

I was waiting in the parking lot once and I had a ricer walk by me. He glanced at my car, then as he walked further he quickly looked back again and took a good look at the wheels. I guess a light went off in his head or something. You shoulda seen his face.

What about these?

PONTIAC GRAND PRIX '97-98 ALLOY GOLD WHEEL 16 X 6.5
Would these fit? kinda like a GG but with a sporty twist.
Honestly though, I want a "shiny" gold.
I love my GG'*...dont get me wrong. It'* funny when I saw the add for my car I immediately pictured Green with the GG'* but I didn't even ask., I figured if it is in good shape I'll take it no matter what color/wheels it was. (They were only asking $1250) I was quite happy to have it be the Green with the GGs. But it is kind of common and like I said I kinda want more sporty and shiny. Plus two of mine are in pretty bad shape and the other two really need a good cleaning, which I am not motivated to do since the othere two are so bad.

I really like those! I'm not sure if they will fit, I don't know too much about wheels. I was looking at getting a more sporty wheel for my Bonne, but I didn't want to give up the color of the GG. I know the ones that I did find cross-referenced with the Grand pix, but I can't be totally sure if those would work for you. I'm sure somebody will pipe up and give you an exact answer.

Yes, they will work fine. I'm currently running the high-polished 5 star GTP rims on my 95 SSEi. Those GPrix wheels are the most hated wheels on the www.oqcgp.com board....they are only used as winter wheels (mine too) for for the track. HTH

LakevilleSSEi was running the Grand Prix style gold crosslace twists. They will work on a Bonneville, only I think they were not 7" wide like Bonneville wheels are.

I thought that there was a size difference. Would that really affect anything, other than that I would need new tires? I need those anyway, so that is no big deal.
