Okay, by now these questions are getting pretty old, but can someone point me in the direction of a set of rear wheels that WILL FIT w/o fender rolling that are 18x9.5.

I would like only wheels that do not require fender rolling, and which have been confirmed to fit, to be posted in this thread.

Thanks.

My perfect wheel would be 18x8 up front and 18x9.5 in the rear with a deep dish style.

Bah, thats what I figured, every thread so far about wheels has said you can only do 18 X 9 at most.

:(

TSW Thruxtons
18x8.0 5x120 40 Hyper Black $199.20 each
18x9.5 5x120 45 Hyper Black $199.20 each * backordered

Go to www.bigwheels.net and look at the OZ Galileo III's ($669 each) or the OZ Superleggera III Forged ($720 each) and you'll also find 18x8's (40mm) and 18x9.5's (45mm) that will fit.

Those are pretty much your only options.

But two things:
1. YOU WILL NEED TO ROLL THE REAR FENDERS. IT'S NOT THAT PAINFUL.
2. You'll probably have to mount 265/40-18's on the rear and 235/40-18's on the front (to keep the same aspect ratio front/rear). You might be able to fit 275/40-18's and 245/40-18's, but I won't guarantee no rubbing.

Not only would those require fender rolling, they might not work at all, given the offset is a 38. Some places say that offset won't fit, these guys think it will, and when I last talked to them they'd never test fit a GTO, so who knows if they're right.

They still believe the bolt pattern is 5x4.75 so I'd take their "what fits" with a grain of salt.

Discount Tire Direct has the Thruxton for $199.00 each no freight charge. True about the back order. I'm looking into how long...
