ok i just typed a big *** post but dial up sucks *** so I will make it short now I guess.

STOCK GP WHEELS ARE REALLY UGLY IMO!!!!! I actually think the best stock looking wheels are the ones on it. I'm not looking for stock wheels. The stock '90 GP wheels are JUST LIKE MINE only they are painted and the holes are on angles instead of being straight.

I don't like the stock 5 spokes because I think the silverish color is gay and I don't like how they aren't straight (they angle inward), and also I don't want it to look stock, and those wheels would appear stock on the car. And I like the crosslaces, but 1, they are on way too many cars so they are really popular, and 2 they are a PITA to clean, and 3 they are really heavy.

I am really looking for like a 5 or 10 spoke white or chrome wheel, but can't find one that I think would look good on the car, or that aren't overly popular.

Basically I am looking for AFTERMARKET wheels. If I were looking to make the car look stock, I would leave the wheels on it on it.

I don't mean to sound like an *** or anything, but I really don't like any of the stock GP wheels.

Thanks,

Shawn

mikey, those are some nice looking wheels. I am looking for something to that effect for my car. (only a little smaller and a little cheaper) Unfortunately I think 18'* would be too big for my car, and I DEFINATELY can't afford the $1100 you want for them. I only paid $1800 for the car! I am looking for more like $500 or cheaper rims. I am a high school student and I'm not made of money. (you think $170 a week is bad, try $200 a month) $1100 rims would be nice, but thats 5 and a half months of pay without any other spending money...too much for just wheels IMO. But those are close to the style I like to help anyone that doesn't know what I'm looking for.

Thanks,

Shawn

I like the 7 spoke rims a little, seeing that they are factory Caddilac wheels makes me think they will be very expensive though, and I don't know if the offset would be correct. Are those 17'*??? A wheel like that might be nice if they aren't too much $$$ and the offset is correct. Is there any way you could figure out what the offset is on that rim?

I don't like the 14 spoke wheels mostly because they say caddilac all over the center cap, and because those are the exact same wheels my grandfather has on his STS (they weren't factory though, he got them from a friend with another caddy) and I really don't think they would look that good on my car.

Are you talking about the 97-00 GP??? If so the offset is completely different and the wheels won't bolt up. Not to mention I don't really like those rims that much (I think they are pretty plain). But the torque star rims would look cool if the offset was right, unfortunately it isn't.

Dealership takeoffs=cheaper!
I have H2 wheels and tires that where taken off at the hummer dealership for only 1,000cdn to go on my play truck, after I get a lift that is...
The wheels on my niebours STS would look good on anything
His even have a clean center cap.
