I think these wheels are nice and fit a BMW, so they SHOULD be decent for a GTO.

18x8.5 is a nice size. I will photoshop them on my car later, but let me know if anyone see's any problems... thanks!
Size Selected: 18x8.5
Price: $419 each
Estimated Availability: In Stock
Recommended Tire Size: 225/40-18
Wheel Offset: +42mm
Weight: 31.5 lbs.

Kind of heavy though :(
They also come in 18x9.5.
18x8 w/ 245/45/18's in the front
and
18x9.5 w/ 275/35/18's in the rear would look killer. I could use the Preditor to adjust the speedo too. Hmmm....

The diameters should be less than 1% different from stock so you wouldn't need to adjust the speedo. Check Google for "tire size calculator".

Those look cool. You might have to roll the rear fender lip with the 18x9.5's...And you're right, those are kind of heavy.

225's are a bit small for 8.5" rims..

I have got 245's on my 8" wheels..

For some reason people in the US did low width tires on wider rims...Not sure what's up with that...225s on 8s, 235s or 245s on 9s...And PadreGTO runs 265s on 9.5s (where I'd be running 275 or more depending on fender spacing)...
