Default Suggestions for New Rims

Hey all

One of the things I have to change on my 97 is the rims.
I was thinking buying a set of the stock chrome rims for that year, but I'm also open to suggestions.

I found a great site http://www.tirerack.com

Select the make model and year of your car and you can view any type of tire or rim on it that they carry. Very Cool!

Also, I remember a site that you could buy OEM rims from, they had an online catalog, but I forget the URL. Anyone have/know that site?

Merlin,
I think my car had the same rims that your 97 has now on it before the previous owner put the current rims on....Wow did that sentence make any sense???

hhmm...
I dont really lke those eighter..
is it 114.3 or 115?

16X7? or 16X7.5?

I like saw a catera with these wheels. reall nice, clean 5spokes...


its better to go origonal (even if they wernt made for your car exactly) becuase afterstock rims arnt usually as round and as balanced.

these ones are soo neat... (note the center peice is change able and they make pontiac(...ext) ones + smooth ones without text)


also a good place to find wheels is ebay.
I bought 17'' cregars for my truck on there for only 1400us.

I really like those.... but can they come w/o the Caddy leafs in the center?
Pontiac logo maybe?

What do you guys think about these two?



(I photoshopped the image of the car to remove the chrome, that mine doesn't have)
