Does anyone by chance know what the lightest rims that Pontiac made that would fit on the bonne at least +16"? Assuming I have enough $$$, I'd like to get a lightweight set for autocrossing this summer (so that I could mount some stickier tires on).

Most people say the crosslaces, but I'd be curious to know how much the 1992-1995 10-spoke rims weigh.
Oh, and definitely not the chrome torquestars with oversized tires.

Crosslace at 18lbs each. I weighed one of my stockers at 21 or so.

For AutoX, Brake early and try not to turn so fast. Try to "bump" brake pressure to pop the weight to the front right before you turn in. Sways and springs are your best mods, But your money is best spent in track time. If the tires are sqeeling, You're losing time.

Thanks for the info guys.

The FE2 suspension upgrade is already on the to do list for this summer. And yes, the best money spent is track time. The first day I went, I improved greatly by the end of the day, and at the next event I got even better. I still need alot of work and practice to catch up to the Mini'* that always win my class though.

I have no problem with the wheels that I have now, in fact I thinks what makes my car mine, but I'd need a second set for the stickier tires. I kinda figured that if I could get a decent set of Pontiac wheels from a junker for cheap, and they were relatively light, I'd just use them.
