16' Rims Question

I recently bought steelies from a '99 CVPI with winter tires on them for my '05 CVPI. The recently acquired rims seem to stick out on my car. I would like to know if these wheels are compatible with my CVPI. Both rims are 16'

Re: 16' Rims Question

Under the assumption that both of your Vics started with 16" rims, I matched up rim models for both cars and they came up with the same model of rim.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

The 2003 and up had a different offset. The older wheels will hit the wheel well on bumps. They are different.

Re: 16' Rims Question

So can I use these older wheels or should I just transfer the tires?
