Rims are 18 x 8 with 245/40 x 18 BFG KDW's. Odds and ends...Wheels are highly polished the entire width/behind the spokes. Almost too finished as my GTO is a daily driver. Keeping interiors clean will be a chore. You might be able to tell that the valve stem is hidden behind one of the spokes. The polishing is some of the best I've seen. Hate to get 'em dirty.

You should have pics of them installed on a Barbados GTO. Please send them to me so I can help you with this.

NICE WHEELS!

Those look nice. Very businesslike. Could you refresh us on the brand/cost/offset/weight?

LS!4FUN...What brand are those?

mistermike...The brand is Bonspeed. You can access their wheels at www.uswheel.com. Wheel specs are (or should be) identical to stock, notwithstanding the diameter of course. No idea about weight. I purchased them via a personal contact in the wheel industry. Haven't got the bill yet. When I do, I will post.

Those are Intro wheels. Check out the thread " Intro Cruisers with Zeons "

I wonder what it has under the hood? Those are from the US Wheel website. Couldn't find those wheels up there tho (the ones from the top of the thread that is)

EDIT After looking at their other pictures I'm pretty sure that's a Monaro and not a GTO...can anyone confirm?

EDIT2 I just noticed the side repeaters - definitely not a GTO.

The car is a Monaro. :eek2: It was built as a promotional vehicle by WheelBoyz in Melbourne, Australia, to promote their wheel business.

I'm sure I saw it for sale a few months ago.

Anyway, the wheels are from Bonspeed.
See http://www.wheelboyz.com.au/

The interior looks like a brothel (not that I'd know what one looks like)

Very good looking wheels. I have Intro brand wheels, too. And you're right about keeping them clean. They only way to do a good job is to take them off the car. It's a major P.I.T.A. but worth the trouble.
