Default Will Trans Am Rims fit?

I'm looking at getting some Trans Am rims for my car. Think the years were 1988-1992, the deep dish black spoked with chrome outer type

Anyone know if they will bolt right on without any probs ? they are 16 x 8 -4.75 bolt pattern. I think they would look bitch'n with some phat rubber

Well, if they do fit at least they are black. Cleaning Spoked tires is a major PIA for me .

Don't think they will fit. 4.75in = 120.65mm and ours is 115.

It probably wont fit because of the FWD & RWD offsets are different, but it still wouldnt hurt to try. Weve used my friends rims & sliciks of his GTP and used them on my other friends 96 Cobra. It was a real tight fit but it worked(had to kick the tire off).

They are a different bolt pattern so they wont fit. Also, even if they did, the offset would put the outer edge of the rim two to three inches farther out than stock. A bit too much of the "ghetto fatty" look if you ask me.

Find some factory lace wheels from a 1989-1994'ish Grand Prix. They are 16"x8". They look just like the Bonneville crosslace wheels, but if you look at the lip of the rim there is a lot more lip. Also look at the back of the rim to find out the true width of the rims, which should say something like 16x8JJ.
Good luck.

You and the beer maiden need ceramic pads. I don't get dirty wheels at all any more.

I need ceramic pads too...but I'll wait till I get the slotted rotors. Cleaning my wheels is a PITA, but this new wheel cleaner I found is amazing though Not as much scrubbing anymore.

But those TA rims would look awesome on your car! Maybe find some crosslace Bonne rims and paint them black. My ghetto golds look phat on RLD. Ask Jim, he'll agree.
