Why? Wrong width, bolt pattern, and offset.

Those won't fit on an 04-06 GTO.....might work on an 'old school' GTO..

Okay then, make it work; it's your car. 120mm doesn't exactly equal 4 3/4" though.

It's a 7" wide wheel. I think the recommended tire width for 7" wheels are like 215s or 225s.

5x4-3/4 is equivilent to 5x120.65, not the same as 5x120. Slightly different, probably would work, but not the same.

Offset is a huge difference. Stock 17s have a +48 offset. These have +6 offset.

But you are free to try just to prove everyone wrong.
