08 Impala wheels

Will 02 Impala wheels fit my 08? Or even more broadly what years would fit? I purchased it with custom rims and I'd really like stock wheels on it. Any help would be appreciated.

I think so? From what I know, both the 7th Gen and 8th Gen Impalas have a 5 x 115 bolt pattern. An 8th gen comes with three different wheels, a 6.5Jx16 ET47, a 6.5Jx17 ET47 and a 7Jx18 ET52. The 7th gen comes with a 6.5Jx16 ET52.

I'm not sure the 5mm difference in offset is going to cause issues for you, but I'm pretty confident it won't, especially since the 8th gen does also come with a 52mm offset rim. According to most sites I've read, you can have a 5mm deviation and be okay. Someone with more experience / knowledge might want to chime in on this, but I'm pretty confident you'll be fine. Worst case scenario you'll just need a spacer (I think).

Edit: Found this on a wheel fitment site:

Rims for Chevrolet Impala 2008

Bolt pattern 5x115
Diameter: 16.0'' - 18.0'';
Width (inches): 6.5 - 7;
Offset (mm): 47 - 52

Thus, I think you'll be fine.

Thank you! I've been told that all Chevy wheels are interchangeable but everything I read says otherwise. So I want to make sure before I commit to buying them.

Here are the tires in question:

All Chevy rims are not interchangeable. However, you can interchange 7th generation and 8th generation Impala Wheels.

Sorry for late reply. I don't have a photo on my phone. But here's what the rims look like.

Thanks for the info! Do rims from an SS carry different specs?

If you're talking about the 8th gen, the 8th Gen SS have the exact same size of rim as the 8th Gen LTZ. 18 by 7, 52 offset.

I've seen SS rims on a non-SS Impala, and LTZ rims on an SS Impala.

And sweet lord, those rims that are currently on your Impala are not for me lol.

LOL. The reason why I'm trying to change them out to anything that'll fit. Also, not for me. The car was purchased with those rims. ?
