i like the earnhardt better personally, but im also not much of a fan of big rims.



remember, it doesnt matter if other people like them or not, it matters that you like them, if youre happy with them that is what counts :)

I like the style of the rims, I think it would look better slightly smaller like 18 to 20 inch.

Btw what is the Texas Edition? Is that from the factory?

Theres no such thing as the Texas Edition, he just put the badges on there for his own unique ride. I'm not a fan of big rims but I actually like these, but maybe in a little smaller size. I agree, like the tails as well.

18" I think is ideal for the 00+ Bonneville. Not too big, but not small either. The GXP rims are my personal favorite.

I like the Texas Edition badge, although I wouldnt have put it in that location.

I think the 18's look good, very understated. I could go up to 20" depending on the rim. Thats for looks though, i wouldn't run a 20" around here. Our roads are crap, i bent my 17" rims and i have a lot of tire around them.

I really like the Earnhardt rims, and I usually HATE big rims on a B-ville...

But I actually really like those rims on your car

You'll have driveline issues because the engine, transmission and axles are going to have a hard time trying to get those big wheels moving, and the brakes are going to have a much harder time stopping them. I'd upgrade to GXP brakes, minimum, to keep your car at about stock braking issues.

I like the wheels, I'm just not a fan of the issues they create, as well as the terrible ride they give, because of the tiny side wall. They'd look really good as an 18" or even a 20" wheel, though.

Ugh, just a personal opinion take it or leave it, the car looks like it's on stilts and has very little rubber to burn..
