Unable to mount 18" OEM on my 2006 GTO

I purchased a set of OEM 18" wheels and it doesn't seem that the bolt pattern lines up. Did I do something wrong? Do I need to buy something else to make it work? Any information will be greatly appreciated. Here is a link of the ad I picked them up from. http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/pts/3017882885.html

Those sure don't look like the OEM 18 inchers on my 2006!


Maybe 2010 Camaro?

I don't know what they fit but I brought them back and he told me that he must have given me the wrong set. He showed me another set and I know for sure I've never seen them on a GTO and just got my money back. Time to save up for some VMR's.

Those are the stock 18s on the Pontiac G8 GT.

Reading comprehension? The craigslist ad states they are G6 wheels...... which they actually are, go figure. Glad you got your money back. Below link has some of the best prices for oem wheels... good luck in your search.

Wheel Rub Fix = "Pedders No Rub Kit"

http://www.wretchedms.com/product/GT...d=p1652-c31874

If you are interested in handling upgrading (which I did and recommend), I went with the Pedders Street II Package. It includes the entire "No Rub Kit" plus a bunch of other items. Jpalamar can advise you on Lovell's and other brands that will accomplish the same thing. I didn't buy from [email protected] Motorsports, but he's a heck of a guy. He gave me his contact info and helped my local shop with the install. I am incredibly happy with how my Goat drives now. I did a bunch of bolt-ons to my first GTO and really liked it. Now on my 2nd GTO (both 05's), I've only done "track" mods (Peddes Street II, Enkei Tuning Rajain 18x8, Hankook Ventus evo V12, DBA Slotted 6x6 wiper Discs at all 4 corners, Hawk HP Ceramic and Russell SS Brake Lines). I enjoy driving this one much more than my previous one.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Very nice. I only saw one GTO with OEM chrome wheels when I was shopping for a GTO, out to the 3-4 dozen I look at. I think chrome rims work well with some colors better than others, but always have been a fan of classy (not 'urban') chrome wheels; Even my '95 Camaro Z28 with Y2k chrome spokes still makes me grin when she's polished up.
