We are pleased to be NEW sponsors on your forum. We are located in Melbourne, Australia and are specialists in factory genuine OEM Australian manufactured General Motors Holden and Holden Special Vehicles wheels which are specifically suitable for 2004 to 2006 Australian manufactured Pontiac GTO models. We do not deal in copy or replica wheels as copy wheels not only infringe on manufacturer design patents but are also often inferior in quality to the original product. More detailed information on copy wheels can be found in our announcements section.

Our packaged sets also include correct genuine factory caps, factory nuts and with GMH & HSV product, nut covers. Our website advertised wheels are actually nearly always in stock. We carry close to 8000 wheels and always bulk buy to maximise discounts. The time delay to ship is usually as long as it takes to package the wheels. We have been in the same premises and specialists in the OEM wheel industry for over 12 years.

We look forward to being of professional as well as efficient service to all forum members.

For enquiries on apersonal basis, I can be contacted at [email protected].

Website is www.wheelking.com.au

Specific wheel links and website guide information can be located by clicking on this link.

Thank you for the welcome and your kind words in regards to your recent purchase from us. I look forward to being of professional assistance to all forum members. I have noted that local intimate knowledge will be of benefit to some in relation to offsets & hubring vibration issues.

In relation to the pricing difference that you mentioned from our website pricing to eBay pricing, eBay pricing is based on your local US currency and our website pricing is based on Australian dollars. As a rule, at the present moment, multiply AU dollar website pricing by 0.70 for your local US dollar pricing. Once compared, it will be more economical directly through us. EBay and PayPal have some fairly high commissions involved but eBay sales with PayPal offer the most security for both buyer and seller.

Thanks again for the warm welcome !!

Well, I have yet to purchase anything yet. I just stated once my financial status is stable, I will be looking into ordering the GTS wheels. I am still undecided on 19" or 20", and I am also worried because I am lowered. Thank you for the quick response. Looks like I will be going through you directly. I believe your company has great products, and I look forward to conducting business.

Factory genuine rims with the correct offset for these vehicles that we offer will fit without a problem in guard fouling. The issue you have locally is that you guys are using rims manufactured for BMW. Correct offset is ET48 for Australian manufactured GTO and the BMW offset is ET35. BMW wheels will sit 13 mm closer to the fender than the correct ET48 factory wheel. These coupes will definitely not take BMW rims without serious guard rolling.

We even have 20 inch rims on our website that will fit without having roll fenders. It’s all in the size and the offset. 8.5 inch width at BMW offset is absolute NO NO on these models.

Bore hole size is also 100% correct and this is critical on all late model vehicles to avoid on going vibrations. The hub needs to carry the weight of the rim, not the wheel studs.

Cheers !!

Frank,
Congratualtions on your sponsorship. I am very happy with the wheels that I recently purchased from you (two used VY SS 18"). You have the best customer service I have ever experienced and the shipping was lightening fast(four days all the way to the Virginia). Thanks again for everything and hopefully you will meet with success here on the forum.
