I'll let others confirm - I would think so.

I don't have a GT but I believe you have to have 17 inch rims to clear the brake calipers.

Thanks Punch, I wasn't sure. Looked on Tire Rack and they only list 17 inch and taller for the GT.

Flashbk2 had some really nice looking 16" aftermarket wheels on his GT. He took them off of his '01 I think?[:I] I think he said the offset was around 42. Maybe he'll chime in here later [^]

I am using 16" painted Dream Cruiser 1 wheels for the winter. They clear the GT's brakes with NO problems.
