The rims in that link aren't necessarily the ones I want. I just want newer Bonnie 17" rims.
Thanks for the welcoming!

Yes a TGP is a Turbo Grand Prix, only made in 1989 and 1990. They came stock with a 3.1L intercooled Turbo, designed by McLaren Engines. My TGP has a TopGun 160 chip, 160 t-stat, Custom engine mounts, Custom Crossover pipe, UD pulley, and K&N right on the turbo. These things have 1/4 mile times in the 15'* and that'* bone stock. A modded TGP can easily get into the 13'*.

Anyhow, I so will those rims work?

Tire specs for a 92 SSEI

Original Equipment 225/60-16

Tire specs for 2000 SSEi

235/55-17

Looks like you'd have to upgrade both the rims and the rubber, unless your SSEi has 17" rims already. Somehow I doubt it Do you have ghetto golds, or the color matching type.

The rims on my car now are the 16'*, and they're silver. If I do get the newer rims, I'll definitely get new tires too.

BTW, the tires on my car now are Goodyear Eagle 245/50/16.

I'm sure they'll bolt up fine. Those 245 must be replacements. I found the info on tirereack.com, I did a search for tire sizes of 92 SSEi'*, they came up 225
