jr's3800, Nice wheels and I like the exterior color. Hey, you never know, i may have a one of a kind 92 and 1/2 Bonne. Someone mentioned that the 15" gold lace rims for the Grand Prix might work. Haven't checked that out yet.

Actually the 15" crosslace rims from a Grand Prix are bigger than the 16x7s put on the Bonnevilles. The Grand Prix crosslace wheels are 16"x8" so they are wider (not taller). They never had any 15" crosslace except on the Fiero which has a much smaller bolt pattern.
Sad to say is you may have to wait until your Goodyear Regattas (NIce choice of tire -my favorite all season passenger tire) are worn out, or else you could just save the Goodyear Regattas for winter (that way you can have nice Regattas when it'* snow time).
Be sure you go to www.car-part.com and search the New York salvage yards. This website has so many salvage yards connected that you could probably find some nice gold crosslace rims for dirt cheap.
BTW, by all means get the gold crosslace wheels. There is a maroon 92-95 Bonneville I see every once in a while and it has the Gold crosslace wheels on it. That car looks like it gets detailed every other day. It is probably the nicest Bonneville I have ever laid eyes on (that wasn't modifed other than the rims). The gold rims just make it look like it should be put up on a pedestal.
And nice job with the spoiler. Definitely brings the car to life.

Oops, the Firebird got 15" crosslace rims also, but they have larger bolt patten.
Fiero 5x4.25
Bonneville 5x4.5

OlBlueEyesBonne, thanks for the link. I have seen it before. I guess thats why the GP is called a wide-trac. I saw a 93SSE this morning with the gold lace rims and they sure did look nice. Besides checking the NY state list I will do a check of the whole US. If I find something far away I will just catch a flight to check them out. One of the privilages for being in the airline industry. I think I am sold on the gold rims. Would be nice to find something locally though.

jr's3800, Found a couple of places this morning that carry the 16" gold lace rims, but the center caps say ABS which my car doesn't have. I guess you could call then window dressing maybe?

Meh...could be worse. Just remind your service fellers once the rims go on, that there is no ABS

jr's3800, I guess ABS was an option back then. I didn't see it on my RPO codes.

How about a BONNEVILLECLUB.COM or a Pontiac logo sticker to go over the ABS cap? Just a thought.

That would be a sweet sticker! Actually Not having ABS? huh. I'm used to std brakes from the ol nova, and i've only used ABS on our yukon. I did use mine a couple times on some loose stuff at speed though...

BonneMeMN, It would of be nice if it had ABS. The winters here can get pretty nasty at times. I live on top of a hill and you should see all of the cars that slip and slide going up and down the road.
