Just got my new wheels on my car. Turned out pretty good.

They are ASA wheels, 18". The wheels are Michelin Pilot A/S.

I waited for hub centric wheels from Tire Rack. I have bought
many tires from them over the years, and trust their advice and customer
service..

245/40-18's right? From TireRack?

One question - how come you didn't go with the Chromies?

They do look schweet, btw :)

The tires are 245/40 - 18.

Chrome wheels are not my favorite, I prefer the low polished
aluminum look.

I worried about the effect that 18" wheel/tire combo would have
on ride and road noise, because I really like the subtle change in looks with the bigger wheels.
Happy to report that I have not observed a major change. The
Michelins may even be a bit quieter.
Worried a lot about nothing.

Those wheels look really sweet. If I get them, I'll be definitively getting the chromed ones The GTO needs a little bit of more bling bling ... lol

i agree. i like chrome and high polish rims as well. but those may not look at good on the blue. so its probably better that he went with what he did. now my PBM for example, definetly needs to some bling.

The standard finish on the ASA wheels is fairly bright, not chrome, but not bare aluminum either. I think they are silver painted, and then clear coated. They are brighter than I anticipated, but I like them very much. I will try to post a picture that shows the brightness.

Very nice :) I think they fit the car very good, and even know I like darker color wheels or chrome, those do look real good on the GTO..
