After my wheels sat in customs for a week I finally got them!!! I went with the 245/40-18 BFG NTs in the front and 275/35-18 BFG Drags in the rear. They are the high polish finish but it is hard to tell in the pics. I need JoeyD or AlphaEden to take some pro pics! No fitment problems but my fenders have been ground down. Here are a few pics:

Looks good but you can tell the wheel is too narrow for the 275's. You should get rid of the SAP spoiler though.

The wheel is a little but I ran 275 Nittos on the stock wheel for almost 14K miles with no issues so this shouldn't be any different. The spoiler is coming off as soon as I can have GTO1369 fill and paint the trunk lid! I'm not doing the plugs.

I didn't mean it would be a problem just they do bulge a little. Your car will look great without the spoiler. What rear bumper do you have? Stock?

I have the stock 06 rear and the Monaro insert is on the way as well.

they look like the CV8 rims from JHP but what about the CV8Z lettering on the spokes??? That completely changes the look of the rims

These are what was put on the last run of Monaros before they gave it the ax. The finish is a clearcoated machined finish with the CV8Z on the rim instead od the painted finish.
