Right... I have for the longest( repeating myself again LMAO ) Felt that the 2.97 gear ratio was the best overall ratio for the LN3 3800... It makes its torque so low down, this ratio seems to make the best of it... And add to that the F41 Firm ride and handling suspension and you have a desirable bonnie for sure... And those wheels are hard to come by... I gave up on trying to find a set...lol

I'll keep that in mind...

Theres a guy here in OK City that has a set of 17 X 8 Grand Prix Alloy wheels for 350 bucks.

If he'll hold them for me for a month I'd like to get them.

I love the look of 5 spoke wheels.

Heres a PhotoChop of them on my car with a 2 inch drop, Cool huh?

Now that looks cool...

Would you be willing to part with those wheels? And what kind of shape are they in?

And seeing the Bonnie from the side like that makes me love the body style even more...

Yes, if I can get the GP wheels I'd be willing to part with them.
I'm going to call him tomorrow.

It seems to me that all they would need is a good cleaning up.
They do not have any road rash that I can remember, they would need a polishing and redo of the clear coat. Also the painted on "Pontiac" thats painted on one spoke of each wheel is kinda' faded.

I'll take a pic of each wheel and PM them to you tomorow.

Well the guy with the GP wheels sold them before I had a chance to get them.

I've never been a fan of 6 spoke wheels, I love the look of 5 spokes.
But if they're rare maybe I should get them polished and learn to love them.

I don't know, I really wanted to go for some 17 or maybe even some 18 inch wheels, with the big wheel opening the 16'* just look a little small to me.

Look at an 87 Bonneville Base with 14inch wire looking wheels, now those are small. Trust those 16'* look great. Its all relative!

In 90-91 that deck wing and those Wheels made the Bonneville LE/SE stand out from the crowd... In 88-89 is was the SSE that got the wing... In 90-91 it was optional on all models usually with certain packages... Makes the car look a lot better... Its neat to see that wing in the rear view too ain't it..
