That makes two of us. I've had no luck. There's one on my street. I've though about swapping wheels.

That makes the two of you. I like them too but I like some other wheels out there by GM, especially the Cobalt SS wheels and the Aura 18s.

If you want them used Ebay or a Pontiac G6 forum is your best bet. If your willing to buy new you can go to

www.detroitwheelandtire.com
www.finishlinewheels.com
www.wheelsandcaps.com

(I am wanting the wheels too)

Why not get something wider? Unless you find a decent deal locally, you are not going to get them much cheaper than an aftermarket.

I've got an idea! This will require a few things. I'll list them below.

Bring two hydraulic jacks, lug socket, a handheld impact gun and 4 cinderblocks.

Step 1) Cruise around til you spot a GTP.
Step 2) Follow the GTP that you just found.
Step 3) Wait til the owner leaves and is out of sight for about 5 minutes.
Step 4) Using the above tools, do a "tire change"
Step 5) Profit.

The last post was a joke. Don't steal anything. Not even candy or paper or even a pen. It's wrong. And you will go to Hell. And you will burn.

Or you should get a wheel that has the correct offset and you will not have to spend 200$ + on spacers on top of wheels and tires.

You realize to get this look (With an 7" wide wheel) you need skinnier tires because of the width? So you can be flush with this set up rubbing even with 215's, or you could get a wider wheel with the same width tires and clear with no issues due to the slight stretch.
