I like those. i think they would look very sharp on your Sly Solstice. price looks real good too. just double check the offset and make sure you are getting what you want.

Yeah, double check the offset before buying.

They look quite nice, but I've never seen an after market wheel I liked better than my factory twin spoke wheels so doubt I'll ever change them.

As for suitability for the car, they aren't that different from the snowflake wheels that were a factory option (except for price - the snowflakes cost $1000 a set now).

Thanks Bill, that's a comparison I was making with the snowflake wheels. The offset on the ones I posted is 42mm, (the rest of the specs are the same) so they will stick out an additional 13mm. If I stick to stock sizes tires I don't think there will be any fitment issues.
I too like the twin spokes but hesitated to buy them because the bolt pattern was 5 X 112mm vs the 5 X 110mm of the 2007 GXP

The OEM Twin Spokes (Q9Y) are 5x110 :thumbs:

Yes, the Q9Y don't seem to have been exhausted yet but they do climb in price as it gets closer to NLA.

I never liked the snowflake wheels, but I have to say I quite like the other wheels that Seldom Home posted a lot better. I think they'd look great on the car and encourage him to post pics if he gets them!

Thanks for the comments everyone. If I get these wheels I will post some pics. It will be a while tho' because the car is tucked in for the winter.

5x112 will fit using hub centric rings and wobble nuts. You may have to drill the bolt holes slightly for an easy fit. The Europeans do it all the time... 5x112 German wheels on 5x114.7 Fords. 2mm is the limit. Get the correct hub centric rings to locate the wheels, the studs/nuts just hold them on.

I am putting 18x9.5 e65 C5 Corvette wheels on my Solstice. Here is a trial fit picture. I am waiting for .75" front and 1.25 rear adapters. More pictures next year.

Tom, that's a file location on your computer, perhaps you meant to post a photo bucket or similar link.
