1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA - $10500 (Canton OH)

Looks like wrong wheels (?), but a good deal.

That's interesting. I just got a historical plate for my '89 GTA and they only issue one - no front plate required.

I hope they get close to their price, I'd like see the value on these 3rd gens start to climb.

Here in Michigan, only one is required, but you can get a front plate if you want (extra cost of course). I bought one for my old Chrysler years ago.

Not sure what they are, but they do seem to be a little different then what I'm used to seeing on these cars. Special option?

Wheels are ARE, American Racing Equipment. They were popular replacements for factory wheels of that era.

Not sure, why would they want to replace the stock rims with these? They look a little bit like the stock but not as nice. The stock rims look much better then these do. These ARE rims look more like they'd go better on foreign jobbers, not on T/A's.

Re: 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA - $10500 (Canton OH)

Not sure why some folks did, but for whatever reason, they chose too!

I agree, was never a fan of this ARE 'replacement' wheel, always thought the stock GTA wheel was nicer. Opinion. However, ARE also offered another wheel which was closer to the GTA stock rim, very similar but different. IMO, it had a lot more 'class' and fit the GTA personality better.

Always made me wonder why someone would spend all that money on aftermarket wheels to get something so similar to stock that most couldn't tell the difference...

In other news, I'd love to know what this GTA sells for-I have the exact car with a little less mileage and paid no where near that asking price. I'd consider selling it at $10.5K if his sells for it! HAHA!

20 years or so ago I remember those gold BBS rims which also looked a lot like the stock gold GTA rims. The BBS's look a lot nicer then the ARE units....IMO
