OE Spec = 15X6 w/+40mm offset

You need to forget about finding anything in a aftermarket 15 or 16" wheel that will look respectable on your car. Those sizes dont have the attention of any manufacturers and what is out there looks terrible. I would either build a custom billet wheel in the size I wanted (15" or 16") or give in to the masses and look at 17 & 18" wheel options, its not the end of the world. Otherwise I think you are just going to be walking in cirlcles.

i talked to american racing and the ar 883 maverick in chrome is still available
in 15x7. i want to maintain the tire height of 26.9-27.1. call me old school
or old fashioned cause i am [62]. my 03 bonneville came with chrome 17"
wheels which i love but id prefer to stay with stock size stuff. just looking
for a little more flash than the machine finished stockers. as far as im
concerned it handles well enough now. why ride on a rubber band
thickness tire. anyone have a picture of that wheel on a cat or bird?
thanks --irv
