    WS6...or Not???

    I recently bought a 2002 WS6 TA and on the wheels they do not have the WS6 logo on the center cap. Most of the WS6 TA's I see do have them. I am wondering is it really a WS6 and how do I tell. Also am I able to replace the center cap to the WS6 or not..if so where can I buy them at.

    Check the RPO code on the driver's side door and look for "WS6". I'm sure you can get those centers from a Ponitac dealer (expensive) or online at Ebay or a forum.

    are they 16s or 17s?

    like said above, only way to tell for sure is the RPO.

    repo code is best and safest way to confirm

    I'm pretty sure only the earlier 17" rims ('96-'00 w/ thin spokes) had "WS6" on the center caps. Later ones had the Pontiac arrowhead.

    But, yeah, the only way to tell for sure if your car is a for-real deal WS6 is the RPO decal on the driver's door.

    The speedline rims came with arrow caps not the WS6 ones. The caps on you're rims are the right ones. But check the WS6 RPO code on the door like its been said to be safe.

    was your car smashed at some point? Chances are the door was replaced and you no longer have your stickers.

    you may be able to get a printout or something from a dealer by giving the vin.

    isnt that lil sticker the money part of the car? haha doesn't that tell you if its a true WS6. so basically without that sticker ppl could sell regular LS1's as Ws6's

    give the dealer your vin and they can at least give you a printout of the options for the car not the sticker but at least you have proof of what it is

    sorry that was LAME... but I remember hearing about a company that will reproduce those stickers, like for restorations etc. But I am unsure of the name.

    try Google and see what you can come up with.
    If you can get an RPO list from the dealer, im sure it wouldn't be hard for some skilled individual to re create the same sticker in photoshop.
