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.

Sharp!! I'd LOVE to do that in a black chrome or even just a polished black look on my G8.. This site causes soo many issues with that damn mod bug.. LOL!

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 is exactly how the 2014 SS should have looked! In my opinion at least

Looks great Monty!

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.
