Are those 8" wide cross laces much heavier than the bonnie ones?
i'm not sure; i've never weighed either. i wouldn't think they would be that much heavier.

btw, i i've made up my mind....the 16x8s are staying on the SSE.

I like them too. I am a big crosslace fan. I don;t know why but I have always liked them. I am glad to see you put them on and post pics so I could see how they look. I actually have thought about getting the 16X8 silver crosslace as well so I could run a wider tire. Current car came with some three spoke, silver painted alloys that had bad chemical staining, so I swapped the silver crosslace from my 94 SE. A couple of questions. Are there any clearance problem with steering wheel at full lock? Are the lips of the grand prix rims polished or painted (hard to tell in pics). Does anyone know if the aluminum center caps from newer Prix wheels (like LakevilleSSEI has) or from the 16X7 bonneville crosslace fit on the older pre-97 Prix wheels? Definitely get the crome lugs. I have them and they look great. and, before I get beatup too badly, I have always liked the t-stars too.

no issues at all....no tire rubbing whatsoever. i think i could get by with 245/55s actually with no problems! oh and they are painted not polished.

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like we crosslace fans need to stick together.
