Default will the rims from a 97-03 GP fit my car?

ive noticed that a sorta friend of mine'* GP has been sitting unmoved in the school parking lot for quite some time....possibly DOA...and she has the chrome, 5 spoke, kinda backwards swooping rims(you know of what i speak) and i was wondering if they fit my car, cause i might make her an offer or somethin....actually how do you think theyd look on my car? and is that style 15s or 16s?

They are 16", and might look nice on the Grand Prix, but on a Bonneville they look ...out of place, and they are too narrow. Our Bonneville'* have a 7" wide rim (16" versions) for a reason, and the GP'* have a 6.5" wide rim.

They'll fit right on, but I'd suggest looking for some rims that are 7", 7.5" or 8" wide.

The 96-99 is curvier then say, the 92-95. I'd be curious to see what they look like on my car.

yeah they do look kinda outta place i mean its not like lose your lunch nasty or anything, i think they look ok....but unless shes like "take these rims for free" then i probly wont get em....or unless im snaggin the whole set for like 100 bucks or somethin i actually like my stock rims...they clean up real nice...but they still dont draw the attention and whatnot that chromies would, and i cant afford to buy new ones.

My chrome torque stars (see my avatar) may be available soon.

The jury is still out on who is paying for my toasted Bonny (GM vs. my insurance), but was able to save my chromies (and the tires) from the scrap yard. If I don't use them for a potential replacement Bonny, I'll sell 'em... although OlBlueEyes has already got first dibs.
