Default Help me find some wheels for my Grand Prix.

I have been thinking about getting some different wheels for my Grand Prix, because I feel the stock wheels are pretty ugly. The problem is, when I start looking at wheels, I have no idea what would look good on the car. I am looking for a 16X8 or 17X8 wheel, and it should be pretty light, I don't want some wheels that are gonna slow me down. I don't know what the offset or anything is either (my other big problem).

This is what the car looks like with the stock wheels:




I guess if you could just find some wheels that you think look good on the car, I could deal with the offset and bolt pattern and everything once I find the wheel I like.

Thanks,

Shawn

Shawn, I think chromies might be too pimp....or flashy. I'd go with some brushed or anodized aluminum......a matte, non-shiny finish.
