I don't know. Not really a fan of huge wheels like that. IMO there is such a thing as too big. I personally wouldn't put anything bigger than 18" on anything.

I would actually like to see a drop on it if anything, if you are going to lift it go with 26'* and donk it out. I personally the chrome handles are a bit much, but that may just be me. I think the handles would go better if you had pillars, mirrors, and other things chrome, but them by themselves looks a bit out of place

Go to 19'* or 20'* at the most and drop an inch.

I won't disrespect you for creating the look YOU want, but you just destroyed the handling and ride. That'* what these cars were built for.

26" wheels on a GXP? You know, a Bonneville is bigger than a Mersserschmitt or a Honda. The GXP'* wheels are already 18", so you could just stay with that and still say you have not just big, shiny wheels, but a big car in general.

If your wallet is really as big as the rims you want to put on, do some body stretching to make a really wide, very long Bonneville. That would be cool to see. Either way, keep taking good care of it. You can use that "It'* an SSEi" statement when your neighbors ask why you're taking car pictures. Please take some more pictures. I'd like to see if you've done any engine or exhaust work. It would be cool to see more.

Oh, great then! That'* very nice attention to details. Did you need to get any adapters for the wheels not to rub? I'm sure, though, it all looks really clean. Congratulations for having a very unique car with everything functioning properly!
