Not a fan of the wheels at all but, a buddy of mine has the same ones on his black 4th gen firehawk... I think I can get used to them... Nice G8 though!

Not bad, but the ghetto fabulous wheels really bring it down.

Trade them for the optional 19"s they came with.

I was thinking about the Camaro rims.

Looks great apart from the already stated wheels ;)

Any plans for it?

I'll wait till spring, but intake, headers, exhaust, and a tune.

Which ones? My RS/SS 2012s, RS/SS 2013s, ZL1s, 45ths?

That's good, that LS2 will open up good.

The hub bores are different, IIRC.

Be awesome and get HSV GTS wheels.

I don't want to say they aren't because I dunno but I know several G8 owners who have done it

I think the stock GXP rims with the arrowhead center are the best looking rims on the G8s. They just compliment the car so well, and you can't go wrong with stock parts!

Go big or go home.

Wedssport SA 55M. Lightweight and forged. Legit as hell.

On a car to better get a feel for the aggressive feel for these.

The blue version of those wheels would look good on a WRBP STi. Would only than need 2 grand, not as expensive as the Volk TE37sl's at least.

Best bet is used. I mounted a set of these on an E90 M3 on Friday, the kid got them for $1700.

19x9.5 up front on 255/35 R19 tires, 19x10.5 out back on 295/30 R19 tires. Tires were Toyo Proxies4. They are DOPE.

not sure if a 10.5 inch wheel will fit on a G8 without some fender work

Maybe so, but rolling fenders isn't the end of the world. Especially for such a legit set of wheels.

Starting to look at new rims. Found a set I like, the Enkei Raijin, but have heard the quality isn't the greatest. Anyone have experience with Enkei wheels?

I think those would look sweet! what colour were you thinking of. I think its all in how they are taken care of, and the maintence that they are given. If you just run it through a car wash and leave them rims are prone to pitting quicker, and if you take them off over winter. Thats a pretty popular maker tho so id image they would be good :) did you check out tire rack prices? If i was looking for non chrome rim for my car i would have def gone with these!

I'm gonna go black, trying to stay away from chrome. In fact, I want to black out the chrome trim on the car too.



These are what I'm looking at:



Enkei Raijin 19
