Default put GTP 16x8 crosslace wheels on my SSE *PICS - 56k warning*

well the tires on my original SSE rims are crap, and i don't really like them anyway, so i put the 16x8 Grand Prix GTP crosslace wheels that were on my Cutlass onto my SSE. they stick out a bit more than the Bonneville 16x7 crosslace wheels, but they are still flush with the body of the car and don't stick out at all (btw, they have a 25mm offset, i'm not sure what the Bonneville crosslace wheels have for offset). i'd rather have 16x7 Bonneville crosslace wheels, but these will have to do until i can find some and buy new tires. the 16x8 crosslace wheels definately gave it a more beefy look IMHO. tell me whatcha think:

I like the look of the fatter wheels on the Bonne, thoes tires look weird to me, I think that a different tire would make the car looks even better.

Those wheels give it an interesting look...

Where did you take that pic BTW?
In this pic if you count from the left in the background the 4th car over is an SSE bonneville 88-91( White )
