No offense, but they are ugly as sin! With that said though, for 400 bucks they would be awesome winter tires.

Left a 421RWHP 2004 GTO, but honestly loving the G6 GT coupe!

Past Pontiacs
87' white Firebird(sold)
01' green Grand Am SE2(traded for the 03')
03' orange Grand Am SC/T(totaled)
04' blue GTO(traded for the G6)

Current Pontiacs
00' tan Montana(I swear, its the wife's)
06' black G6 GT Coupe

I think my 17" chrome tech's look better than those with $400 in my pocket
just my two cents though

Actually, as I see it the size is not whats important, its the visual appeal. If size was important then 18" steels would look better than 17" alloys, but they don't do they? Just sayin

Just saying, that if I had to chose between those wheels and mine, I would pick mine. But between those and the stock 16" double 5's its about an even toss up for me. Again, that't just my opinion.
