Here's some info I got today from jhp...

Yes these wheels are available, they are a genuine G.M. (Aussie) part that only come in 18" x 8". We don't have the centre caps but can supply the Aussie centre cap. We keep these wheels in stock. the price for the rims (4), centre caps (4), wheel nuts & nut covers (20) is $1775 AUD (Australian dollars), the exchange rate is in your favour $69.77 U.S = $100 AUD. The freight cost will depend on where in the U.S the wheels have to go, with air freight the wheel will be there under a week.


Not bad...works out to about $1700 with air freight shipping...

Bluegoat, can you post a couple of pics so I can see if I want to purchase from Geoff? And did you get the standard 18x8? Thanks!

To be honest I'd wait a few weeks (month or so) and just order them by the new GM USA part #. Those are the new optional 18" on the 05. This means they will have an RPO and a part # to help crazy guys like us order them!

Ehhh, yeah, but Chris, we all know the price of GM parts per wheel (i.e. chrometechs).

That and what he wants isn't going to be the same style optional on the GTO. It doesn't look like the Autocross kit is going to include new wheels either.

I would pass on the center caps, the stock Pontiac caps will swap straight into the Monaro's wheels.

Chris,

Do you know what kind of tires the 18's on the 05 will have? The ordering guide says 235/40ZR18 summer only tires but doesn't give out any more info. Hopefully Pontiac will give us some good performance tires.

I can see if there is an '05 running around tomorrow, if there is I'll grab some tire specs.
