Here at ModBargains, we’re car enthusiasts ourselves, which is why we love having the variety of vehicles we get to see come through the shop, and this week variety came in the form of Australian-American Muscle: a Pontiac G8 GT. Hector, who owns this G8, came to ModBargains looking for a set of Concept One‘s CSM-7 wheels to give his Aussie a little extra visual edge.
Hector, the owner of this G8, opted for a set of Gunmetal CSM-7s with a machined face, the darkness of the Gunmetal inners is an excellent compliment to the diffuser, grille and blackwork of the G8 while the bright machined face compliments the car’s silver finish.
Even the best wheels can look bad if the fitment is off – our Senior Modification expert, Elliott, set Hector (the owner of this car) up with 20×9 et.35s in the front for just the right stance.
And 20×10.5 et.42 in the rear with just a hint concavity and beefy rear tires to get the G8’s power to the pavement.
Did you know that the United States Air Force uses the Pontiac G8 as a chase-car to help the famous U-2 Spy Plane take-off and land? Only a handful of the most powerful American cars have had the honor of working as USAF chase cars, getting to blast down a runway at over 100mph on a regular basis, these cars need the muscle to move with authority. With such a wide rear stance, it looks ready to tear down the runway, even when it’s standing still!
That same wide rear stance allows for a nice level of concavity out of the CSM-7s. How’s that for a “Wide Track Pontiac”?
We could hardly contain ourselves long enough to post these for you, check out the rest of the pictures and let us know what you think! Thanks to Hector for coming out and sharing his sweet G8 GT with us!
