Could be neat, but those are the "special order" wheels, and it'* a RWD car, so the offset may be different. That price is the price for one wheel, but you must buy them in groups of 4. so it'll be atleast 1800 before shipping.. I could find the specs for you in a little bit. The FWD GXP styled wheels have been on the GP, the Bonne GXP, and even the Asstek.

The Solstice normally has these gxp styled rims in paint like below, polished, and chrome. We ordere polished, but took paint when we would've had to wait due to constraints. Probably will be easier to keep looking "new" in a few years.

Most solstice wheels are a PITA to get for two reasons.
1) new car, and demand is high by GM to get it going.
2) The main wheel supplier for GM was dumped for someone else.

No, the price is for one, but you can only buy them 4 at a time. It'* somewhat misleading.. Any other wheel on there (the GA GT wheels for instance i looked at once) are all priced that way. The option for those wheels is between 1500-2000 through a dealer before you trade in your old ones IIRC...
