i'm looking to put new rims on my 2006 impala, but i need to know what offset i need for them to fit
Correct, and yes. The wheel sticking out farther could cause the wheel to rub against the fender.I'm still confused about the "allowed" offsets... I mean if its a lower offset (+30, for example), you could still use it, right? It's just that the wheel would stick out a little further - is that correct? Or does the wheel sticking out further cause you to run into other issues?
I would love to know what the true, offset range is for different sized wheels... I guess wheel width would play into the offset ranges as well. Would be nice to have a table that shows the different offset ranges for different wheel sizes and widths for the 8th gens.
I also read different answers from different people on the whole 5x115 / 5x114.3 bolt pattern "debate". Some say they are basically interchangeable and others say that thay may fit, but that they wouldn't do it, etc. If I ever replace my wheels, I think I'll stick with the 5x115, just to be safe.
I did find the stock 17" Impala wheels have these values:
- Bolt Pattern: 5x115mm
- Offset: 47mm
- Width: 6.5"
- Bore Diameter: 70.3mm
