Default G8/SS wheel swap

Hey guys, i've got an 08 GT and one of my moms cars is a 2012 camaro ss. I'm thinkin about taking the wheels off it and throwing them on my car, but does anyone know if the 19" G8 wheels will fit correctly on the SS? I'm assuming so, just have never seen it done. Obviously the camaro wheels are a popular choice for us, but i couldnt find it the other way around.

probably not because they have the brembo set up and we need 20s on ours if you put the camaro brembos on.. it will rub.

Plus the tires on the SS wheels are too big and will rub.

You don't have to have 20's to clear the Brembo's. Hell, Bogart and Weld make 17" wheels that will clear them. Our stock 19's will not clear them without spacers though, and our tires are about an inch shorter than the Camaro.
