Findlay GTP, first of all let me say your ride looks awesome. I am loving those rims on your black GTP. I have the same ones on my galaxy silver SSEi.

I just wanted to take a second and share this with you man. I know what you are going through. I went through the same thing a little while back. I wanted the 2001 centre caps very badly. I had them priced out and everything. But, after surfing the net and looking at other SSEi'* with the 2001 centre caps, I fell back in love with my 2000 centre caps. I don't know if it is because my car is silver but I think the 2000 rims are better suited to my car. Also, IMO the 2000 rims look more muscular than the 2001 when they are actually on a car.

I do understand that your car is black, not silver, but I think your rims look pretty sweet now. I am, by no means, trying to sway your opinion. I am just trying to share with you what I went through and put some more thoughts in your head.

at a stop the '00 may look better, but when the rims are spinning the '01'* take the cake IMO. aside from seeing more "Bling bling" in the spin...the center of the cap sticks out a little bit and i think it looks sweet.
Even if i buy them and i am not please i can always sell them.
thanks for your input though.
these rims give an awesome back spin though...saw a video of my car dynoing with those rims on it was wicked awesome

Don't endorse stealing my center caps Jim! When I had my Aurora somebody stold one of my caps in a Jewel parking lot. I was pissed. I had aftermarket re-chromed Stock rims from www.aaarims.com I called them up and the sold me new caps, all there center caps are new by the way, they were like $18. Give them A call.
