My girlfriend'* parents bought a 02 Bonne with those wheels and everytime I see them I want to swap them for the ones on my car. I love them. How much did you get them for?

OK, go find one on ebay and find out how much they want for it. I paid that for all four. (Ok, save you the leg work: $200 for the set from a boneyard)

John, you're a fan of the spoke style wheels arent you? I like those kind too. It was a toss up for me between these and the five spoke (with a little twist at the end) chromies off a 2003, but i like the swirl style anyways and those were gonna cost me 200 per wheel... so the price was right and i couldnt help myself.

On my way back to school i went through the $1 self-wash to get the heavy stuff off, so might take some more pictures later after im out of class or ill finish washing it at home first.

Let me tell you 245/45/17 tires make one *HECK* of a difference on the handling of my car. That thing sticks to the road like friggan glue even with my FE1 suspension or whatever the soft one is. I feel the big bumps a little bit more, but road noise actually went down.

I think 17" swoopies look great on 92-99 body styles.

$200??!! Man, thats lucky! Everything on ebay is like 900-1000 for the whole set after shipping. Maybe I need to go check the local wrecker.
