New tires and rims for the G6 vert

Hey guys, it's been a while since I have posted here. The last time was when I added the headlight LED's and Spyder LED tail light bulbs.

My factory rims are getting sort of beat up and it is time for new tires, so i decided to buy both at the same time. I found a set of 18 x 8 5 x110 rims that are used on the 2012 Regal GS and Opel / Vauxhall Astra that I really like.



This is what they look like on the Astra.... Both the rims and tires are in transit and I should have them on the car in a few days. I will post some pics if anyone wants to see what they look like.

I wanted to stay away from chrome or anything tht looked too aftermarket and these are perfect since they are a GM design. Let me know what you think.

Do you mean the look or the actual fit of these rims? They are 5 x 110 with a 65.1 hub bore and offset of 42. I have seen these on a a few of GM's European cousins with the same lines and platform the G6 is bult on, they look really nice.

The only difference is they are 18 x 8 vs 18 x 7 for the stock rims, but a P225/50R18 works on both. I will of course post some pics and see what you guys think. Not everybody will like them, of course.

At least you will get to see what they look like on a G6 before you commit to buying them. I got these for $740 shipped (all four)....

Cool - thanks! Tire Rack usually gets things out super quick - I've never waited more than 2 days between placing the order and having big boxes show up at the front door
