Does anyone know for a fact what the bold pattern is for the SS. If it is on the forum please direct me. I have found some info here but the problem is someone said that the bolt pattern was 5 X 110 (very odd) but the RHE C5's that were on the Preproduction SS are 4 X 100. 5 X 110 will make it very hard to find rims that I would actually like. Im asking because Im drawing up a list of rims I might want to buy. Anyone know for sure?

And what kinda rims is everyone thinking about getting??

5x110 w/42mm backspacing for sure. And don't expect to get too much wider than a 7" rim either. You can ask current owners to check, but there isn't much more room to use.

You might be able to fit 18x8's with the right spacing, but I didn't find much more room back there when I was looking at it.

"5 X 110 Chevy WTF!"

If you look at GM's current line up you will find that the midsize use 5x110. Also the 5spd is a saab, and I believe the 2.0 block might be the saab turbo block as well. Think about it, GM might have just taken the entire powertrain and suspension from their Epsilon cars and grafted it to the Delta platform. Great way to performance and cost.

They probably did, you wouldn't happen to know if the Saab had this same bolt pattern would you? Also is the suspension the same cuz I've heard SEVERAL people say that they think the 9-3 is THE BEST handlin FWD car ever from the factory.

And I hope I can get 18x8's cause I not only like the look of the wide tires but also it gives a bigger contact patch. I'll try to find a way, cut fenderwells, save weight, better performance, j/k wouldn't do that on a brand new car.

Just checked tirerack.com. The Saab rund 5x110w/42mm offset just like the G6 and most likely the malibou. Same exact pattern and offset as teh SS. So atleast the hubs, block, and tranny were stolen from the saab.

Somebody also told me (DONT QUOTE ME ON THIS!) that GM owns a small share of Subaru. I was told they are helpin them with some things and Subaru is helpin them with AWD technology! I guess it sounds mre like a contract to me.

It is true that is why Saab has a WRX look alike. I have read this i a book once.

bolt patterns

the sedan has 4 X100. I doubt they would be different, but I m not sure. Any wheel place can look and tell you for sure. Most of the aftermarket wheels are what they call universal. (which means they have several locations for the studs. You can t even tell, they look good.
