Default Need Rim Help

So I picked up these rims from the JY last week. They aren't perfect, but a little touching up isn't hard. I pulled them off of a 94 Bonneville SE.

I looked around online and tried to find what car they were originally from. I believe they either came from a GP or a Firebird. I read that the Firebird had a different bolt pattern than the Bonneville. But they were definitely on a Bonnie at the JY, so I know they'd fit at least.

Does anyone know for sure what these came from?
And if the bolt patterns really are different, should I even consider putting them on my Bonneville?

Thanks, and here'* a pic.

They have the "Pontiac" name etched in one spoke on each wheel.

They do have a slightly different offset, but nothing thats a deal breaker
