I’ve got a contact who is willing to ordering a special batch of wheels, customized to fit the GTO — IF we can enough interest to justify the he has to commit to. These are some of the wheels I’ve found, and done a lot of looking. They with a low-pressure casting and use the flow-forming process on the barrel This is a rolling/spinning/cold-working process refines the grain structure and very thin sections for weight, with mechanical approaching those of forged — at a very reasonable Here’s the wheel:

These wheels are currently for BMW’s, so they’re already set up for our bolt pattern. They are TUV and VIA for 1560# a wheel, so there’s of capacity for our heavier cars, and seem to be well regarded on the BMW The amount of customization will somewhat on how much demand we but here’s what I think is

17×8, 5×120, 40ET, . $249; maybe BMW hub with maybe GTO-specific

17×9, 48ET for sure and probably 16.4# . $259; custom GTO hub

18×8.5, 5×120, 40ET, . $349; maybe BMW hub with maybe GTO-specific

18×9.5, 48ET or maybe higher, . $359; custom GTO hub bore

The 17 overlay with current LTW a little better, so I’m confident about the fitment With the 18 sizes there’s uncertainty about what the spec’s would be, they even end up as 18×9 and 18×10, but the would have to be just With our small user we won’t be able to get both the and the 18’s, so if you are seriously interested in wheels, please post preferred diameter and finish with machined lip), any comments on the fitment, etc.

I’ll send a link to my so he can gauge the level of interest. give him lots of encouragement to the plunge on this!

I have no stake in this deal, but I spent a considerable amount of researching wheels, and I have an background with a good for what would be feasible I found these wheels researching my upcoming set of dedicated wheels tires. I think would make great day wheels. maybe not quite so as an appearance mod. I do see a little in the design — a nice wheel.

LTW Motorsports website — flow forming info:

do currently make a 17×8.5 40ET wheel with BMW hub that could be used The other currently-produced sizes 41ET, 18×9 41ET, 43ET) just aren’t right for us.
