Default 2008 GT500 Stock Wheel Specs

Can someone post the stock wheel specs for 08 GT500
including offset, weight etc?

I would REALLY appreciate it.
I don't know how I'm going to find out for sure if these wheels will fit.

I am wanting to get them stock size (18's) But I need to know the rest of the specs for the stockers.

Anyone have a clue?
Here they are:

That's not published info and is extremely elusive to come by. And since you have the wheels you want info on, why not just take the measurements yourself?

I know jack about wheel fitment.
Here is what those other wheels say:
size 18x9.5 ok so that part of the spec works
Lip depth 3"
5 Lug/Range 100-120

Does this give enough info to say if it fits or not?
and if so will they fit lol?

Again I tried to contact them but no success.
I will try again tom if this is not enough info to tell whether they fit.

(Oh yeah I'm stupid.. it's the 4th. No wonder they aren't there lol)

What you need to find out is the offset/backspacing of those wheels you are looking at black, without that info you will have no idea if they will work.

Please note backspacing and offset DOES NOT guarantee that they will fit...due to the big brakes on the front of our cars it is wheel design as well... Our cars are 5 lug 4.5 bolt pattern.. When you get a hold of someone match up that ... Ask them if they will fit a gt500.. Also verify their return policy if they don't.. There are very few 18 inch wheels that fit our cars

These are identical to the 2007 GT500 takeoffs wheels that I have: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2007-...Q5fAccessories

Vapordude, could you make those pics a little bigger? I'm trying to figure out if that nat that landed on your hood is male or female...
