Re: NEW 17 inch GTA Wheels

Sounds great, I have looked for replacement rims that don't look stupid and have not found any I like as much as stock. I would like more tire without leaving my stock rim look. Don't get too big, then they start to look like those gross rims being slapped on SUVs.

Re: NEW 17 inch GTA Wheels

I photoshopped some GTA rims to 18in. I think they look badass. Would love have some 18x9.5's up front and 18x11's out back.

Re: NEW 17 inch GTA Wheels

Well I would like them. I have two cars that has these style wheels my 88 GTA and my 99 Bonnie SSEI Supercharged. I wanted to put some on my Grand Am GT but the wife says two cars with those wheels is enough. haha.

Yes thats three Pontiacs. I want to get a GTP Grand Prix next.

Hey Zimmstoy I would like to talk to you about your transmission swap. Could you send me your phone number. ltdodson@underwood.navy.mil

Re: NEW 17 inch GTA Wheels

I would like to have a set of those...Oh yeah! Bring 'em on. Would you offer them in black maybe? My questions, would they have the factory offset like the originals? A definative front and rear rim? It would be cool to keep that set up.

Re: NEW 17 inch GTA Wheels

I think they've lost interest in this idea, since noone's really responded to our interest

Re: NEW 17 inch GTA Wheels

anymore i see hawks moving more towards the 4th gen crowd and not the 3rd gens, everybody else is so why not... I guess that's where all the money is since most 4th gen owners are check writers.

Actually what I see IMHO is more of the LS1 swaps into 3rd gen cars. But that just waht it looks like to me I could be wrong,lol.

Re: NEW 17 inch GTA Wheels

you know what I'd like to see? A custom accesorie setup for 3rd gens to put on the LS1 and LS6 so you don't have to notch out the subframe crossmember for the A/C... sure you can get rid of A/C, but I like my cold air :P

That's too bad they lost interest. I really like the GTA wheels, but I wish they were available in at least a 17-inch size.

i don't see why people are so hung up on the ls1. It'll be old news soon, the ls2 and ls7 are already out. For the price it costs to put an ls1 into a 3rd gen, you could build an L98 motor that would crush it. And it's a hell of a lot less work.

Re: NEW 17 inch GTA Wheels

They say many people from the forums said they were interested but very few were willing to pay for them what they asked. Too bad
Hey Fearthisgta, do you have an enlarged version of the pic in your sig? I love it!
