I have 20" Camaro replicas with 255/45/20 tires. Much smoother ride than my stock 18" set. Highly recommend.James Clarkston said:I don't want really low profile tires as that sometimes takes away a little from ride comfort.
OK, so cool... I'll check out the Camaro wheels and see if any of them are 17 inch.
Looks like they have a different bolt pattern 5x4.5 vs 5x115mm, so I would say NO. When looking for replacement wheels, you should also look at offset, and center bore - in addition to bolt pattern.James Clarkston said:I think I found some Impala rims I'd like to use on an '05 Equinox I'm thinking about getting... think these will work?
Chevrolet Impala 2011 Aluminum Alloy Wheel, Rim 17x6.5 - 5071
Transwheel Aluminum Alloy Wheel, Rim 17x6.5, 5x4.5 Bolt Pattern
Chevrolet Equinox 2006 Aluminum Wheel, Rim 16x6.5 - 5273
Transwheel Aluminum Wheel, Rim 16x6.5, 5x115mm Bolt Pattern
I'll have to get a 17in tire that has the same outside diameter as the OE 16in wheel, but hopefully the wheels will fit...
According to TireRack, the Equinox takes 5x120mm and the Impala takes 5x115mmJames Clarkston said:I'm seeing the same Impala wheel listed for sale as having a 5x115mm bolt pattern so apparently this is the same as a 5x4.5 Bolt Pattern.
My neighbor down the street has an Impala with these same wheels so I may go down their and offer him $50 to take one of his wheels and try it on the Equinox to make absolutely sure it fits.
I have noticed some conflicting information, although some information does state than some Impala (or ? Monte Carlo) Alloys will interchange with Equinox 2005.James Clarkston said:I'm speaking of an '05 model... which should be 5x115mm Bolt Pattern until the new model came out I guess in 2010 and that bolt pattern is different than the older models.
I see number companies that specialize in selling used and refurbished wheels saying the pre-2010 Equinox and the Impala up until I think 2013 both have a 5x115mm Bolt Pattern.
Pictures of the Equinox and the wheels for future reference? :cheers:James Clarkston said:I did end up buying the 06 Equinox and I did install 17 inch wheels from an Impala (brushed aluminum) along with a new set of Bridgestone Ecopia Low Rolling Resistance tires ... and it looks great!
Wheels are actually the exact same offset and bolt pattern so they fit perfectly.
