He could always opt for the 01 model. Thats what I had to do during the center cap fiasco on my car....but...thats another story.

I don't mind the caps actually. I like the bigger Pontiac dart, and the fact that they are flush with the rest of the rim, compared to the newer cap that has the hex pushed out. But I like the fact that the newer ones are all chrome. If I found some of the newer caps for a good price I'd consider grabbing them to see how I like each.

Ya, but everyone has torque stars on 92-95'*, these 17'* gives it a "set apart" look. I really like the way it looks, and the 17" will give a nicer stance.

I appreciate everyone'* honest opinions!

I definitely prefer the 17 inchers I've got. They have a perfect amount of negative space too, showing the calipers very well. But that'* just what I like. They are just what I wanted: newer style OEM Bonneville chrome, and 17". If I found a set of the 2000+ 5-spokes I would have liked those too. But I actually like these better. They aren't as heavy "looking" and are more unique as well. I definitely wanted something that isn't already common on a 92-95. And AFAIK I'm the only 92-95 SSE/SSEi with these. Bmsgaffer being the only SE with them IIRC.

Now if the car was lowered about an inch it would be perfect!

Oh wow took me awhile to find this post!

Yeah they look great on there! If I didn't already have my GXP'* before I bought my 2000, on my '96, I'd have for sure kept those swoops...But like I'd LEAVE the GXP'* on the old one! Yeah right! That was a crappy choice to make...swoops or gxp'*!

Well, I'm happy the swoops lost out, they look great on your car! I like the center caps on those. They sure do 'bling' when they rotate and are clean.

Awesome. Thanks for the pics....I'm happy they went to a good home.

I agree...the car would look great black...
