Rims that fit 2018+ Equinox

Good Afternoon,


We have a 2018 Premier and we're not liking the harsh ride of the 19" rims & tires... I am leaning towards buying a set of 17" rims off of an '18 GMC Terrain and buying some BFG T/A Sport tires or something similar... I am wondering if there are other options within the GM family of vehicles that I could pick some factory rims from an put on the Equinox... I see it all the time in GM trucks swapping between, Tahoes, Burbs, Silverardos etc but, I'm not as familiar with the Crossover family of GM vehicles, I've found that the previous gen Equinox & Terrains are slightly different (THANKS GM) so that rules a lot of options out.... Any advise would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks,
Aaron.

I searched for months for my wifes 18 equinox, didn't really come up with anything, because of the bolt pattern change with the redesign, I couldn't find anything else that matched, not even the very early gen equinox wheels with the same bolt pattern fit because of the offset required to clear the brake calipers. I read about certain gen malibu wheels that have the same bolt pattern but again, don't know about offset, and even if I did find out they had the proper offset, finding them used and reasonably priced is near impossible.

I ultimately ended up finding a new set of aftermarket wheels on Discount tire for under $400 that look good.

Maybe if you're lucky somebody on the forums here would be willing to trade some LT wheels for your premier wheels.

I was getting excited about some 2016+ Malibu rims but, then I noticed that they're 8.5" wide not 7.5" wide like my equinox... Right now if I make the switch I am leaning towards the base GMC Terrain 17" rims... It's not that the 19's are unbearable but, I don't love the harsh ride and super responsive handling plus we have a lot of pot holes and poor road conditions here in Ohio and I would hate to bend a rim...

Guys, this subject has been hashed over many times on this forum. You can find many threads on this subject. We have two '18s, an LT with 17" wheels and a Premier with 18". We bought these before the salvage yards had stock wheels available since GM changed the bolt pattern in 2018. When looking for wheels for Winter tires, I couldn't find any aftermarket wheels from Discount Tire or Tirerack or anywhere else that even came close to the stock wheel specs. What I found for our 'Noxs was wheels that were used on the Buick Verano from 2011-2017. They exactly match the stock wheels except for a slightly different offset (+/- 2-4 mm), look good and the bowtie center caps fit them. Take your choice, but remember that the early 'Nox wheels WILL NOT WORK, even though the specs. are the same. The shape of the early wheels cause interference with the brake calipers. You can find out a lot about wheel specs. by using the wheel-size.com site. You can find a source by searching on eBay or Hollander parts.com, which covers salvage yards throughout the country. Plan on paying somewhere around $100/wheel.

Looks like the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu 17"x7.5" wheels have the same bolt pattern and center bore as the 2018 Equinox. Offset on the Malibu wheels is 45mm vs. 46mm on the 2018 Equinox. The question is whether the Malibu wheels would clear the brakes. Maybe you could find a dealer willing to sample fit 17" wheels from a used 2017 Malibu on your Equinox to check fitment. If they fit, the wheels are about $130 each online.
