    ADR Rims... Any Good?

    Ok so I've got a black 2006 GTO with stock 17's riding on 245/45/17's. I want to get some new wheels, and I'm wondering if these ADR's that Im looking at are any good....


    Have any of you run ADR rims before and had any problems? Im wondering about the company's quality. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Im thinking of 18s, 19s, or a combo. Also, tire suggestions would be sweet.

    I may be wrong on this, but check the lug pattern on ADR... I think they are one of the ones that use BMW spacing which is just lightly off...

    They do say the fitment is for a BMW, but it also lists the GTO, Firebird, Camaro, and a few other makes besides BMW. It says the spacing is 5 x 4.72 or 5 x 120. Not sure what the stock is for the GTO... I should probably get on that...

    Make sure cause one of them is just BARELY off... i mean like .5mm... but that will put unneeded strain on your wheel studs and could lead to a failure... And at highway speeds that just not cool

    the difference is not enough to cause a problem....

    I have ADR wheels on my TA with a 5x120 bolt pattern. they bolt up no problem. I always check the torque often and not once has a single lug backed off even slightly.

    the difference is .5 of a mm on each lug, that is nothing. Just get hubcentric rings and you will be fine (i don't even have them yet and i still have no issues but i plan on getting them anyway.)

    as for the quality of the wheels, they are a little heavier than i would like but the quality and finish is decent for the price. Dont expect fiske or ccw quality, but you wont pay the price either

    I went onto the ADR parent companies website, and while searching through the vehicles, i couldnt find any GTO's between 04 and 06. I decided to switch it to Camaro to see what options were available, and it shot this back at me...


    This looks like the lug pattern is slightly larger than 120, does that mean its too big? Or is 120 slightly small for our application?

    5x120.65 is the proper bolt pattern, but like i said in my previous post 5x120 is shit difference they will still work fine
