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.

Hard to pull off

This looks like its gonna be hard to pull off.
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.

Well, everything showed up today. Took them over to NTB and had them mounted and balanced, then put them on the car when I got back home. WOW!!!! I love them.... pics coming tomorrow when it is light out. What a huge difference.

I'm not really a fan. They don't look bad, but I wouldn't choose them.

I totally get it, there have been only a handful of aftermarket rims I have seen on G6's that I like. Most are too flashy or look out of proportion when they are riding on 20"s. I simply wanted a bit more upscale with a European GM look. A boatload of Vauxhalls and Opels are riding on these over in Europe. I could have gotten them in a 19", but I know what 18"s look like on the car and wanted to keep the same profile. I think the tires are a bit overinflated.

I will take some new pics where you can see a huge difference between the spoke color and the polished aluminum.
