What is the offset of the wheel? Also, those tires are way too tall for a GTO. Problem is not that the tires are too wide, it's that they are too tall and the wheel is the wrong offset.

I had 275/35/18 on c5 wheels (not z06) and they fit with little spacer and arp studs. Now i have 275/40/18 on the same wheels and had to massage the inner fender a little

Not well but many do it. The 8" wheel isn't wide enough and some tire places won't even do it.
