New rims and tires...finally!

I bought some rims and tires off of a guy on Craigslist, and neglected to find out what the bolt pattern was. Needless to say, it wasn't correct. So...I bought some adapters, and put those bad boys on today! They were the exact same rims I was looking at online, but for over half of what I would have spent new.

I think lowering it will add sooo much more to your G6.

The tires were only slightly used. They rolled straight, and the tire tread looked great. The guy told me he got in to an accident in his car so he bought a new one, and the tires wouldn't fit on his new one.

The bolt pattern on the rims is 5x110, so I had to get a 1" adapter to switch it to 5x100. It was an easy switch, and I haven't had a problem with the tires sticking out a little bit further (I think it looks better!).

I bought the adapters from lugnutguys on eBay for $100 for all 4. That was the cheapest I could find them, and they've been holding up great!
