Default Help w/ Bolt pattern change

I got a "good" deal on new tires and wheels from a 2005 GTO. They were a factory option but have never seen them on the road before. Any way in my rush to grab this "good" deal. I didn't check the bolt pattern. (Never occured to me that Pontiac 5 lugs would differ) Now what is the best way to get 5X120mm on a Bonneville 5X115?

it can be done in thery, sometimes wheel hubs can be swapped over, however, the likelyhood of it being simple is very slim, you have to take into account backspacing aswell as bolt circles

For the future if anyone is researching this topic I wanted to follow-up.
You can put different bolt pattern wheels on a car. I used an adapter from a company called adaptitusa. This worked out well for me as I wanted to space out the wheels by 1 inch anyway. If you are thinking about putting different wheels on make sure they fit before you buy them. As you can see below it worked out in the end.

The GTO is rear wheel drive isn't it? If it is, that would mean the offset will not work for a FWD car. You would be better off getting some bad a$$ wheels from a Pontiac G6.
