    GTO winter wheels.

    Im trying to help my dad get some winter wheels for his 2004 GTO. he just needs some rims that are the same specs as stock.

    I found these over on Summitracing.com
    http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

    will these fit? I have seen many different specs on the bolt pattern for the GTO's. some say that they are the same as corvettes and F-bodies, and others say they are different.

    thanks for any help.

    yea the weather isnt too bad yet. just gotta stay out of the gas and keep the tail in check. I have to drive it this year since I lost my job and cant afford to get a winter car like I planned to do.

    I'm just gonna wash it as much as I can and wax it a lot to help protect the paint. I hope it works a little bit.

    nice TA. I dont know if i have seen it around.

    the gto bolt pattern is slightly different on paper, but its so close you can use camaro/corvette wheels, just check for strut clearance on the inside and wheelwell lip out the outside because the gto can only take 275 max with the right backspacing wherethe f-bodies can fit a 315 tire under the back .
    I saw snow coming in sideways down in southern virginia last week.....its way too early for winter to start

    thank you. he would be putting stock-sized tires on it.

    he bought the car with brand new blizzaks on it and I put some BFG's on the stock rims. now he needs to put the winter tires back on.

    thanks, ya i'v been there before man, years back I had a 94 lt1 I had to drive in the winter, usually I'd just throw some sandbags from menards in the hatch to pick up traction, and ya waxing really helps, I dont see a whole lot of V-8 98+ f-bodys around here really, ALOT of mustangs though, only one I really see around here is a red 98+ Z28 with black rims and sometimes I see a Z28 red with an SS hood on the bass lake road area,but thats about it, take good care of her man, if I were you i'd buy one of those unlimited car wash deals for the season, I used to do that and it really paid for it self.

    yea i think i'll buy one of those passes. I cant stand a dirty car especially in winter. I dont see many F-bodies at all. At the Ricekiller.com meets in grove we only had like 1 or 2 F-bodies at the meets. the rest were mustangs.
