    Anyone ever seen '01 -'02 WS6 wheels on a Formula?

    I want WS6 wheels for my Formy....just not sure which style. I keep going back and forth. I know what the earlier style wheels look like on a Formy, but I haven't seen the newer style yet.

    Anyone have a pic?

    I know I can see them on a T/A, but I really want to see them on a Formy.

    If no pics, does anyone think this combo will look good, or should I go for the earlier style?

    Oh, and does anyone know which style is lighter?

    I assume your talking about the speedline wheels that Pontiac started using in late `01.
    Look for pics of `95 Firehawks cause those wheels were the standard wheel on that Car, and that should give you an Idea of how they look on a Formula.

    Thanks for the info! I actually just found this out after I posted this question on another forum.

    Great info, btw. I had no idea that the Speedline wheel style was made before '01.

    I'm still considering going with wheels like yours, it's just that I don't want to cheap out on tires, and 18" tires are EXPENSIVE!

    I priced out a package on Wheelmax, and the only set in my pricerange are the cheapie Nexens.

    My tires were only $578 shipped from Tirerack.
    Kuhmo Exsta SPT's 245/40/18 & 275/35/18.
    Total cash outlay for my Wheels and Tires was under $1300.
    IMO you'll spend more for less to get those 17's unless you get a used set off of Ebay.

    Thanks! Do you have any shots from the side?

    And great exhaust tips, btw. Are those B&B?
