    NICE!!! EXACTLY the way I'd like to go with mine.

    I don't think I'd ever be able to justify spending the $$ on the hood, but I want those wheels!!!

    Looks very nice!!
    While I like my spoiler, the low rise looks just as good.


    By the way, the stock tire size on those wheels is a 275/40/17. Just an FYI.

    thats what I bought my car with. they looked horrible. I ended up selling them and the shitty nankang tires they had on them to some guy with a red 95 v6 firebird. (He had the bowling balls )

    the size of the rim has nothing to do with the speedometer being off. as long as the over all diameter of the tire doesnt change, it wont affect the speedo/odometer. the stock wheels and these wheel both have an overall diameter of 25" or 26" i beleive.

    My 16's were 25.5 dia... My 17's are 26.25 dia or .75 dia difference you will be about 2-2.5% difference without a reprogram or ~2mph faster then factory. Now, GM makes the speedo show about 2mph slower than actual ...so it should be pretty close to correct. I took a GPS to my cars when I change wheel sizes. In my case, I have change rear gears from 3.42 to 3.73 and tire dia. I do have a programmer that I can plug this in along with speed limiter delete. I bought the programmer when I first got the car. $350 or so and it's has help a lot. It's a Hypertech.... Unfortunately can't get a Predator for my '98 or I would have bought one of those a long time ago.
