GTS Wheels
I want to put 18" wheels on my GTS and don't know a lot about fitment. The information I have found indicates that I can put 225/40/18's on the GTS with the 16" fitment. Does anyone have experience with installing larger wheels/tires, and can offer advice as to whether I will run into rubbing problems with this configuration. (I have not lowered the suspension.) Any advice is greatly appreciated. smile

Since the car isn't lowered, you shouldn't have any problems idunno

Thanks for the input, it sure helps. As you probably are aware, as soon as you install a wheel on your car, you own it. I don't want to get stuck with some really expensive Racing Hart's that won't work. Much appreciation! thumbsup

^ Yes. I don't think that going larger than 18 is any good for your whole setup. 18 is a really good number.


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

yea 1500...u find em over at clubc? they come with cheap tires tho...all depends on what tires you what...it adds up...i went with 225/35 which is like the most expensive tire plus the brand--- falken which cost a lot too...i paid more then 1500 ill tell you that...also if you have the money get the 2 pc...i was able to see both 1 pc and 2 pc...cuz vividracing (where you got that deal of 1500) is like 20 minutes away and they had some in stock...def go with 2 pc if you have the cash...sweet lip on it grin
