Its a dream to drive now compared to before. I put 225/55/16s on there and what a difference between the 205/70/15.

quick pictures, but the car is dirty so w/e.

Definitely looks better. I'll have to get a picture of my grandfather'* LeSabre with the 00+ Monte Carlo rims on it. Same thing, much nicer of a ride (I'm rocking it while the integra gets a timing belt)

maybe I'll drive it to Rochester next time to have a buick meet....

Nice look. I think maybe I like those better on the Regal.

I'll make the per verbal "Your nuts are showing" remark. You know black lug nut covers might look good. You always see those rims with the chromies.

Thanks for the comments guys. It was money well spent.

As per the lugs, the chrome covers (which cody gave me) dont fit on the stock lugs which is what was used to bolt the wheels back on.

As for you, Gumball, I did the clear corners before summer, but never posted it. Very observant.

Heh, Bonneville wheels are so versatile! I've now seen Bonnie wheels on Cadillacs, Oldsmobiles and Buicks!

Rock on
