This thread sucks as a resource. Other than the first post, I cannot search for anything I need in this thread because all my search terms are too short or too common. And I can't post a new thread asking my question because I'll get harassed for not searching. :handjob:

So based on what I just read in this thread, seems like no 15" rims will fit on a 2011+ that take conical lugnuts...I thought I had found that the summit 541 pulsars would, but seems like it will need spacers/grinding

Would be nice to have the 2011+ listed as well

I have some Weld RTS wheels from my S2000 15x9.25 with 7.5" back spacing on 275/50/15 tires. Can I use those in the back ofy 13 GT?

Figured it would be easier to ask tonight b4 I try them tomorrow.

What do you guys feel are the least expensive 15x8's that bolt up without any grinding or fitment issues? Trying to get a cheap drag setup for the rears. I have 26x10x15 slicks sitting in my garage just trying to find something to mount them on.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

^ Race Stars are quite common and readily available from many sources. Once you have an idea what they sell for new, take a look through the classifieds section because used sets come up for sale all the time.

Just got my summit stars 15x4 1.75bs (same as jegs sport star) using some nankang 165/80-15's
Guess I didn't get lucky I used the 3/8" spacer and had to still grind some caliper to clear... but I'm nice with the dremel so no biggie!

2011 brought larger front rotors that prevent any 15" wheels from bolting on the front. If you swap to V6 front brakes, you can run the 15's.

Certain 15's fit the rear.

Just an FYI for guys like me who are running 3/8th spacers in the front.
No need for longer wheel studs, just pick up some of these... I'm only getting 5-6 turns of thread from my stock lugnuts (which is fine I guess but makes me a little uncomfortable) these get you back to the original range without going through the hassle of getting/installing longer wheel studs!

Nice extra threading as compared to the OEM style...

  • JEGS SPORT STAR CAST WHEELS

    Front : 15x4 W/ 1.75 BS , PN: 555-67051 , 3/8" Spacer ,PN: 555-65051
    Rear : 15x8 W/ 5.5 BS , PN: 555-67077 ,NO Spacers , NO Relocated Swaybar , both front and rear use factory length studs and stock conical style lugnuts


Well after reading all the pages I thought I would give the sport stars a shot. I have on 06 GT and found out that the fronts work with the spacer but the rear do not. I had to grind the rear caliper for them to fit

It's hit or miss I didn't have to grind the rear, but had to grind the fronts, some people don't have to grind the fronts either lol.

My rears spin without a spacer but I felt like it was too close anyway so I put a 1/8 spacer in.

tires mounted yesterday, installed wheels today to verify the axle was centered - had to make a small panhard bar adjustment, snapped some crappy cell pics:

Quite the necro, but this thread is the reason I joined the site. I picked up a pair of Billet Specialties Street Lites for my 2013 GT (15x10, 7.5" BS). I also did BMR Swaybar relo kit. Let's just say they aren't direct bolt on. I'm pretty sure they're hitting the caliper, but my question is how do you guys know which spacer to use? Do you just order 5 different sizes and try them all or are there measurements I can take to help out? I don't mind grinding some caliper if needed, but I also don't want to reduce the integrity of the brakes either. Any help would be appreciated.
