Forgive my ignorance, but I want to put ws6 wheels onto my original trans am (2001) do I need spacers or will they just bolt right on?

Welcome to the site! The wheels should bolt right up.

WS6 wheels and the stock tire sizes for the WS6 will fit, however GM used a slightly taller rear suspension bumper on the WS6 and SS cars with the 17" wheels. Make very sure your stock suspension bumper is in good shape when you mount the wheels (made of a rubber compound that tends to break down over time). If you notice the tires rubbing under the top of the fenders when you go over bumps, you need a taller bump stop. You can get either a replacement set for a WS6 (expensive) or you can get an aftermarket set (much cheaper) that may require a bit of trimming to get it just right.
