Recently Modification Expert Elliott had the pleasure G8Board.com member Kn1ckster on his sleek ghostly White Hot Pontiac G8. Sitting just right, this clean beauty looks better than its brand new contemporary, the 2014 Chevrolet SS Sedan, despite being 5 years older – and $12,000+ less. Stanced beautifully on a set of G8 H&R Springs and Pedders GSR Shocks/Struts, the G8’s wheel wells are a perfect fit for the 19″ VMR V810 Wheels for Pontiac. With no spacers (and fenders already rolled), Kn1ckster reports that he’s had no rub issues- which is always great.
The Flow-Forged VMR V810 Wheels are a great fit for the G8’s style, aggressive and reserved – all at the same time. Kn1ckster recently added a set of Spyder Auto LED Tail Lights that dress up the rear end, giving it a contemporary look rather than the quasi-Altezza style tails the car came with.
To cope with the muscular G8’s V8 engine, the car wears incredibly beefy 295/30ZR19 tires over 19×9.5 VMR V810 Wheels out back with 255/35ZR19s in the front over 19×8.5s to create a fantastic staggered look. “Thank you to Elliott from ModBargains, great guy to work with – he gives straightforward advice and even gave me a nice little discount that helped persuade me to pull the trigger on my purchase.”

Kn1ckster is thrilled with the difference the VMR V810 Wheels and tires have made on the car. “When I unboxed them, I was blown away – they are absolutely beautiful wheels… …I absolutely love the new look and feel of my G8.”
Though the rears are a tight fit over the Brembo Brakes for G8, they do indeed clear – just barely. Kn1ckster tells us that he’s considering adding a 3mm-5mm spacer for a little more clearance in the future. We – as well as the G8Board – love the way this White Hot beauty has turned out.
