AFF02s are back on MaverickMan's website, for a limited run. Based on my discussions with the carbon guy, this will probably be the last time these will be available, so act now.

I have these rims, absolutely love them. I get so many complements on them, but they are super light and best quality rim I have ever bought.

ACE Alloy Flow Formed Wheels AFF02 in black ice.
Here my offsets. No rubbing or rolling of fenders.

Running Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires install on rims
19x8.5 front 245/35/19 45mm offset in front (Front rim and tire 45.2 lbs.)
19x9.5 rear 275/30/19 52mm offset in rear. (Rear rim and tire 47.2 lbs.)

Rim weight no tires.
19x8.5 weight in at 20 lbs
19x9.5 weight in at 21 lbs.

Very nice. I had read a couple posts about these wheels when trying to get a grasp on what I could fit under the rear without modifying the fenders.

As I recall from reading in various threads we can do the 19x9.5 with 275s on the rears without any further mods (not cutting/rolling/suspension mods) ?

Correct, mine do NOT rub and I have not modified or rolled rear fenders. I do have 350mm rear Lovells springs, Koni shocks, polyurethane rear sub frame bushings and diff insert.
They are supposed to not rub even on stock suspensions setup in rear with 52mm offset it rear.

Too bad they aren't available in 18".
To be honest, these 19" ride better than any 17 or 18 inch rims I have had on GTO. Soft tire I am running helps too, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S.
Best traction setup I have had so far. 3.72 seconds from 0-60mph my best with this setup, before couldn't get below 4 on all other rims.
The extra rubber and lighter weight rims totally changed how the car performs.

Ive been trying to determine the direction I want to go with my 05 that I recently picked up. Its a SAP car with extremely low miles, so Im rather hesitant to cut/roll the fenders and even more hesitant to do a mini tub. My previous 06 had the fenders cut as well as a mini tub with 315s on the back :sneaky:. However my current 05 will soon to be 575+ to the wheels..... The car came with the dealer installed optional forged wheels from MC2 which are only 8" wheels. So the max width tire Ill be able to get on the back is 245 or 255, which even with the best sport tire (perhaps the PS4s or the Cup 2s) I wont be able to put much of the power down. I saw pictures of these AFF02 wheels a while back and thought they looked awesome. Decisions, decisions 😆

Thanks for providing those tire specs. Can't wait for my set to arrive. Been looking for a lighter rim to replace the heavy stockers for years.

We have a brand new set of 18" tires waiting to go on. We have 19's on there now and my wife and I both prefer the 18.

So per the website only the black chrome is available with the custom GTO offset? The other colors require fender mods?

I believe that is the case. Only the black chrome wheels have the "special" GTO offsets to accept a 275 rear tire without any modifications. I tried to get the other colors with the black chrome offsets, but was denied.

I also believe that was the case, only the black chrome has correct offset to fit 275 in rear with no modificaitons.
Other colors don't have correct offset.

I really like the custom offset. I like the black chrome but don’t LOVE it like some other wheels. I don’t like black wheels on black cars personally. Sucks they don’t offer that offset on other colors.

Im tempted to pick me up a set of these simply because they are the best aftermarket wheel I've seen, IMO. Based on these pictures these "black chrome" really look chrome ish, which is what Im wanting. Perhaps it depends on the angle/lighting.

Does anyone happen to have a red GTO with the black chrome AFF02 wheels? I'd like to see what the wheels look like from a few different angles on a red car before I pull the trigger.
