Anyone try 19" wheels from a Camaro on their GS. I have an opportunity to get really cheap 2013 Camaro wheels and I'd love to know what they look like on a GS. I'm not a big fan of the 20" wheels that our GS comes with, only because of the size and my location, ( I live in a place known for potholes, Detroit ).

You need to find out the width and offset and backspace to determine if they will fit.

Yep, what MelsRegal said is right.
Gotta make sure Bolt Pattern is right too!
It should be the same but check before you buy them.

I know what you're saying about those potholes!
Winter is almost here again, and our city still doesn't have all the
potholes repaired from the previous winter!
Our roads are hard on my 18" Wheels.
You try to miss one pothole only to hit six others!

So, I tried the 18" wheels that regular regals come with stock.... And they don't work... It's not the inside diameter of the wheel that is the problem. The problem rather is how much the caliper sticks out (towards the curb). I need a wheel that has similar geometry as those 20" and 19" stock wheels have. A giant curve in the spokes away from the hub.

You are correct about those GS models.
Gotta make room for those Brembo Brake Calipers.
Sorry, that never crossed my mind to tell you that at the time.

Can you possibly get one of the 19" Camaro Wheels and try it out?
Maybe they'll let you try it on your GS at their home instead of taking
it to another location to try it?
