For whatever reason, I thought these wheels would look good on this model the 'ol lady seems to like them which is good since this is her ride!

Anywho, I haven't seen these wheels on any other Equinox vehicles so it's just a little something to make it unique.

We got this ride from a used car dealer who go it from the original owner and it only has 45k on it. The interior is near perfect and it runs and drives like a new one and we only paid $8900 for it so over all it's a good deal for us.

At least it's paid for and we aren't servants to a bank!

This subject has been beaten to death, but here's what has worked for me. We bought 2 new 2018 Nox's. The first was bought in Aug. '17. I immediately started looking for Winter wheels. I did not want the cheap steel wheels because When mounting you have to be careful not to bend them since the metal is in no way as thick as those I used to use. Back to the subject. All specs. will be for 17" wheels supplied as O.E., either standard or optional.
2005-2009 are 7" wide, 17" diameter, offset +47 mm, bolt pattern 5x115, lug studs M12x1.5, center hole 70.3mm
2010-2017 are 7" wide, 17" diameter, offset +43 mm, bolt pattern 5x120, lug studs M14x1.5, center hole 66.9mm
2018-2020 are 7" wide, 17" diameter, offset +41 mm, bolt pattern 5x115, lug studs M12x1.5, center hole 70.3mm
While the 2005-2009 wheels look good for replacements for the 2018-2020 vehicles, THEY DO NOT WORK. I found out the hard way. The shape of the early wheels interfere with the brake calipers on the later vehicles.
Since we bought one of our 2018s in 2017 there were no wheels to be found in the salvage yards for mounting winter tires so I used a program called "wheel size.com" and entered the specs. for the 2018 17" wheels. I found a nice looking wheel that was used on the 2011-2017 Buick Verano. The specs. are as follows:
2011-2017 are 7" wide, 17" diameter, offset +44 mm, bolt pattern 5x115, lug studs M12x1.5, center hole 70.3mm. The 3mm offset variance is less than 1/8" and no problem.
I'm sure there are many other options since the specs. have been the same for going on 3 years now but that's what worked for me and I think the wheel is nicer than the stock wheels. BTW, I mounted the winter tires, with the Verano wheels, on our Premier which came with 18" wheels. I used a 225/65-17 tire which is within 1/10 of an inch different from the diameter of the stock 18s.
This is the Verano wheel with the same bow tie center caps from the OEM wheels:
