ACE Alloy Flow Formed Wheels for your Pontiac GTO.








As some of you might know Maverick Man Carbon and Ace Alloy worked closely together to get the right fitment for the Chevy SS. This is no different when it comes to the Pontiac GTO. We did the test fitment again with Ace Wheels in Chino, California on the Maverick Man Carbon GTO!




By using an actual Pontiac GTO for this rather than doing the guessing like other mail order companies we know what works! We checked for brake clearance and fender clearance as well as larger aftermarket brake upgrades like the AP Brake Kit we came up with the best fitment for the GTO! Plus we have the best deals period!

The Ace 002 is a new style for the Pontiac GTO by ACE Alloy Wheel. Lightweight and a stronger load rating than the common wheels often put on GTOs. Every owner knows there are very limited options out there for the Pontiac GTO. It is nice to have something new and different for it! The Ace Allow 002 is your best wheel at an affordable price starting at $1455 for a set of 4! Custom offsets also available with only a 3 to 5 day lead-time, inquire within.

ORDER HERE



Available in four different finishes and in 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear.

MUST READ -> BLACK CHROME IS THE ONLY COLOR AVAILABLE IN THE CORRECT FITMENT SIZE FOR THE GTO allowing you to run a 275 without rubbing*. Other colors available will fit HOWEVER they will only will fit with smaller rear tires like a 265. If you wish to go larger like a 275 you will have to roll the rear fender.

More aggressive fitments flusher to the fender are available, with a possible 285 tire fitment! However you must roll the fender and fitment is only available in Black Chrome. Feel free to inquire within for details.

*every GTO differs. some may rub depending on weight, suspension and tire sizing.

Very interesting, I'm always on the lookout for new wheels since there are so few. I'm a chrome guy but know nothing about how black chrome matches up with straight chrome. I've never seen them in person. Are 18's available or is it 19's only ?

So what are the offsets for these magical wheels with perfect fitment? I couldn't find them listed on your website either. Also curious if they are available in 18" sizes but I'm guessing no.

What about a square setup that fits properly and clears Brembo calipers?
Weight of the wheels?

no sorry only as shown as in 19s. black chrome can look like chrome in certain light and then black chrome as in the photos in other light.

actually these wheels can be cut anywhere from +20 to +52 and will be just as so for the GTO. thus being "magical". at this time there are not many wheels in a x9.5 that will fit right without a roll besides 3 piece wheels. not to mention something different out there since the same wheels the last 10+ years. lol!

well a x9.5 won't fit in the front. a x8.5 will fit in the rear. so it would have to be a x8.5 all the way around. i would have to figure out that offset.

I like the way they look on your GTO
these go really well with this color! ;)


Agree, what is weight of wheels?
these are a flow formed wheel. centers are cast, the outers are made like a flow formed like a forged wheels.

weights are as follows.

19x8.5 weight in at 20 lbs
19x9.5 weight in at 21 lbs.

these were weight BEFORE the were drilled and cut at the hub. so maybe a tad light then this.

Cool that we can customize the offsets, that really is magical. Not so much though limited to one width and color, I guess it's true you can't have it all. :D


Weights are fairly light for a strong wheel so that's a win for sure.

correct. if you know the offset you want i can do that but that is custom and it is what it is when you get it. however if you want it the way i have seen that works for most set ups i can do that as well. you can also get a more aggressive set up on other colors but for sure would require a fender roll or cut.

and yes weight are good its not like 90% of the GTO wheels people put on which are cast. or even if they are light they are for sure not strong. trust me i have a set of those too. lol!

also if you missed the link to my web page for these in the OP here it is again: https://www.maverickmancarbon.com/collections/frontpage/products/ace-alloy-flow-formed-aff02-wheel-for-the-pontiac-gto

question is the set up for square because you want to track the car or is it because you want to be able to rotate them? each set up would be different.

Rotate them, for track use once or twice a year.

yep possible with a x8.5 only however rear you might have to roll a tag the GTO is just not a very good candidate for a square set up with a decent tire size. given why OEM is only 235 on 18s and 245 on 17s.

you also cannot do it with a x9 or x9.5

if you are still interested let me know.

Best looking wheels I've seen for the GTO. I've been looking and debating on what to replace my stock 17's with for a while now and was leaning towards weld 17" wheels. I am a little hesitant though, by how short the sidewall will be with the 19's as far as overall ride and how that size would perform with say a set of nitto nt05r's. Anyway glad to see another great option.

Maverick, I already install brake calipers from the Cadillac CTS-V six piston in front and four pistons in the rear (all with bohmancustons bracket). Will your wheels fit with this modifications?

i am not making these personally. i am the one working with the company to get them done. ;)

but for now yes. they committed with me to bring in the 8.5 in black chrome just for the GTO.

so yes they should be around for some time until they decide to discontinue the wheel over all.

they should as we have been discussing over DM.
