Default What wheels fit?

More specifically. will Olds Alero wheels fit my Bonneville?
What is the bolt pattern measurement on our cars?
I found a killer deal on a set of Olds take-offs, I could save a bundle if they fit.

5 X 115 is the bolt circle

Make sure the rims are 5 X 115

Out of all the tape measures, rulers, yardsticks and gauges that I own, not one of them is metric. I was hoping there would be someone here who knew what the Alero'* is. Off to the Olds forum.

I called "Alero guy" again today. I told him I'm interested in the wheels and he said again, "They only fit an Alero." I told him that they will fit my car and he hung up on me. I guess he didn't really want to sell them that badly. I know that if I go to the trouble to pay for an ad, the first person to come across with the cash gets the goods. I guess I could have lied and said I have an Alero...

As far as i know the Alero uses the same wheels as a grand am, and as far as i know on THAT the grand am uses a 5x100. But maybe they changed that in the newer years.

:EDIT: My bad, i just double-checked, the newer grand am'* use 5x115'*. So you're fine on the alero rims. That guy didn't know what he was talking about.

90 (or maybe even earlier) til 98 Grand Am'* were 5 x 100
99+ Grand Ams are 5 x 115
So, then the alero rims would fit as they are the same as the grand am.
I just put the stock rims from my GTP on my Bonne yesterday, both are 5 x 115.

Hope that helps a lil
