    Cobalt SS wheels are 5x110 18x7 and offset is 42 I beleive... and yes they will fit but they sit a bit tucked in...

    I'm running the solstice wheels and had to use 8mm spacers to clear the strut housings, specifically in the front but i used the spacers all around.

    Can you post pictures of those wheels on the car?

    The solstice wheels were 18x8 with ET 55, and our cars were OEM equipped with 17x7.5 ET 39, thats 1/2" narrower and also 15mm farther in at the mounting face so I am curious to see how they look.

    From my calculations to get them to and to look good they needed at least a 25mm spacer.

    The fronts need to come out another half inch id say and the rears definitely an inch more to look more flush

    Wow. They look fabulous. Not usually a big fan of chrome wheels but these look like the were made for the Catera.

    That video totally convinces me. If a Catera can do donuts like that... hmm... I have devious wagon plans now.

    For sure right on.

    You know one thing I never knew about the Catera till last week was that it only has one wheel transferring all the power from the engine. That being the driver side rear. It is so clear watching the video as only one wheel is creating all the smoke The European Omega has Limited Slip Differential while we have fixed single wheel power drive.

    Cheers.

    PS: As far as pictures I have only added these as attachments in my posts never in the main body as in this thread. Maybe Elvin can comment.
