    yeah they look nice but too big for me. I would never go bigger than 18" but everyone has their own taste. I wouldnt go that big cause they gotta ruin the ride and damn they gotta be heavy as hell and that gto ain't light to begin with!

    Actually I did want smaller rims....but these only came in 20 & 22. After consulting a few people (they claim that as long as went w/ a 35 series instead of the 40 form the oringinal 40 series) it would be OK. I check the clearance from the front strut (as i know this is a mjor cocnern) and after the install eveything was fine. I was even surprise to find the ride quality was not compromised (I mean it is a sport car). Rim (20 X 8.5) Tires (225.35.20) The Rim is a Niche N-5. Hell if I can ride on these everyday in Chicago, Anyone would be in love on real streets. Also the lip goes all the way across (easy to clean), even the back side is polished (so there is no brake dust build-up. I did a lil research (not just another ghetto look) for the sake of it.

    They look great. The great thing is it's your GTO. If you like them that's all that matters.

    Does look a bit out of place, but props for changin it up. Er'thing over here in Oregon is stock, unless you drive a honda; in which case every one has a different body kit.

    But honestly, for 20's, it's a good match up. Can't chrome it up too much.

    Not feeling it, the rim doesn't have enopugh meat to it...too skinny for the car and size of the rim IMO

    Hey Bro...Sorry to say but they don't make cars go fast on Pimp My Ride! 20's are heavy and weight makes you go slow. If you have a fast car don't weigh it down with flash. My opinion though.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    looks like the new camaro's rim.

    doesn't fit well on a gto, though. very thin spokes make it kinda "wagon wheel"-ish.

    not really digging it here, people will notice the wheels before they notice what you're driving

    Well, well, Since i have been driving it more than a month now, People love the look on the streets. I think the rim change it the perfect addition. U got this wonderful looking car and chrome dual exhaust tips and no other chrome accent on the whole damn car. I was even shocked when a ole timer came by garage and like it. He said the car was a legend and needed some spicing up. Thanks all for ya views and comments.
