The rims come on the Special Edition Commodore Z-Series in Australia. These are 8.5 wide all around unlike the SS which have 9in in the back.
I wrapped them with Continental Extreme Contact DWS 245/40/19 for the front and 275/35/19 for the rear.

Specs: 19x8.5 +48 23.5lbs

I like it for sure! Then again I am a sucker for OEM chrome... Where did you get the gas cap if you don't mind me asking?
They're forged polished aluminum and the cap I got from the dealer.

Very nice!!

Your car looks just like the SS! I know the G8 and the SS are essentially the same car,but you really can't tell the difference from the side shots.

Monte,

Those look awesome. I do like how it sets off your other silver/chrome accents on your car.

When the SS's hit the streets and your car starts to look like theirs, are you gonna change rims to something different again? :)

They're not chrome, they're polished. It would be nice if they were.

Those look great on our cars. Any idea on total cost? Are they only available from Aust?

That's what I have my eyes on ... maybe someday I'll get mine black chrome PVR or something like that. I have been inspired by your chromed twinspokes. Don't get me wrong, I was just yankin your chain a bit, I love the new rims you chose... they are awesome.
