How come you just didn't search by your vehicle? They're available for the GA also.

Back when I was first looking for wheels they had them available in 18s but for some reason not so much anymore, I went back to check and one day I noticed the 18" option was gone sadly. After searching I found another place that sells Sport Edition and they had the KV5's available in 18s. I noticed whilst looking for some wheels for my friend recently they didn't have the KV5s anymore on that site.

Glad I got them before they went out, especially since they're ones off the GA concept.

Bolt pattern will work, offset is a little to low for my taste but 20mm should fill out the wheel wells nicely.

Depends on what the hub bore is after that, if it has a bigger hub bore then the GAs then tirerack should automatically send you the right hub centric ring for your application, but it the hub bore is smaller on those wheel it wont work unless you want to have it machined to fit at a local shop.

Crappy company, crappy quality.

Look for TSW, ROH or Enkei if you want good wheels at a decent price.

Scour craigslist for deals, your bolt pattern is 5x115, but 5x114.3 will also work. Look for offsets around 25-30 and you'd be surprised what you find used. I just nabbed a set of OZ Energy wheels that were lightly used (thought they were new) they retail $1200 new for my size and offset and I nabbed them for $225 said and done. Search and ye will find diamonds in the rough.

These are what I'm looking for - I love the AT Italia Inox style but the fact their discontinued - very nervous to buy if something should happen, I found these a few days ago similar style to the Inox and the style your looking for. Maybe?

Go with what you want. Mine are still in mint condition from the day I bought them. The balancing guy said they balanced nicely, there where no vibrations at all when driving to KS there and back 5 hour total drive, they lasted from 3 full hours of 90+mph tracking at Kansas Speedway. Nice and solid feel.

You're buying from a reputable place, tirerack is good. Some people just can't handle "good" quality, some want the "best," even though good will work just as well when you take care of them.

Not to mention they where on the GA GXP concept and many other Pontiac concepts which is always a nice "miscellaneous bonus" to having them.
