Will '11-12 California Special wheels fit my '09 GT500?


Recommended Posts

It's almost tire replacement time. Not entirely enamored of the OEM wheels on my '09 so been looking @ other model wheels, preferably OEM's, not knockoff or aftermarkets.

Really like the wheels that came on the '11-12 California Special versions & found a brand new set on local craigslist f/s. My concerns are it's a 19" wheel (meaning limited future tire selection), but the currently mounted tires are brand new Goodyear Eagle's 245/45/19, which are considerably narrower than the OEM tires on the 18" wheels. I'm also not certain if they'll fit over the Brembo's.

Has anyone swapped over to these wheels & had any issues? I can see where rear end traction might be a concern so after these tires wore out, I'd go as wide as possible could fit on the wheels; looks like I can go up to a 275/40/19 in the future, which is what I'd do cuz I want to square up the tires anyway.
