... i would assume a gto wheel would bolt in but not sure. never heard of anyone getting gto wheels.

why do you want it gunmetal? how often do you have to use a spare tire?

last time i used a spare it had a max speed rating of 55, so this is new to me lol. im sure you could spray paint it. if you actually sanded and took your time. if just at a drag night no one will see a difference. or just get it powdercoated...

will it bolt up? yes. but it is not the correct bolt spacing. GTO's use the same bolt pattern as some BMW's. the wheels will bolt up but eventually it could bend the stud.

if you're honestly looking to buy a spare for looks...just...wow haha

I have seen people "hone" the wheel stud holes out a little bit to get them to fit. But, for driving you will definetly have to replace the original rubber.
