i have found some pretty sweet rims, although i am unsure if they will fit, can anyone offer some assistance? here are the specs.

the car is going to be lowered around an inch also.

05 GTO

18 x9" 5 x 114.3 pattern 18 offset

i want in the rear 18/35/275 or 285 and the front 18/35/245

can anyone confirm if this will work or give me some advice to the contrary.

They won't.

The stock bolt pattern is 5 x 120. Even if the wheel fits over the lug nuts, the lug nuts will not be in the center of the lug holes on the wheels.

The stock offset is 40 mm. 18 mm will not have enough positive offset which will push the outer lip of the wheel farther away from the wheel hub.

For more clarification check out this wheel info from The Tire Rack.
