Default Rims on a 2000 Bonneville SLE

Well I want to buy these rims for my 2000 : http://mrrwheels.com/hr2.html What i wanna know is will they fit? Im going for the 19 inches. They say the firment is

Size PCD
19x85 5x112
or
19x85 5x114.3



I wanna know will they fit? Will they rub? i know the largest on 17s is the 245/45/17s? without rubbing so maybe ill have to get nitto r555 in 245/45/r19s for these?

they wont rub, i'm running 8.5s no problem
yet your bolt pattern should be 5x115, many say its not good to run 5x114.3
i ran 114.3 with spacers for over a year and never had any issues

I have 245/45/17s on my car and have a ton of space. It'* the offset that you need to watch. Not enough offset and you risk rubbing on the inside. As for the bolt pattern, I really suggest using 5x115. Being off even a little and you are flexing the lugs. Over time you risk snapping a lug.

Dayum thanks so much guys so the 114.3 will fit as long as i stay with the 8.5 offset and not do the 9.5? and what happens if hypothetically i was gonna put 20s in the back and 19s infront? i wanna get that lowered look theres a vid of i think its 1993sle with a vid called "for your viewing pleasure" and it looks like the front is lowered and the back is raised or something? I want that look and maybe itll help the weight distribution? but ima go 19s all around lol THANKS so much guys

Having different sized tires may raise havoc with your wheel spin sensors. They expect all the sensors to read about the same.

You have it wrong, 8.5 and 9.5 is how wide your rim is in inches. I doubt you can fit 9 or wider rims on a Bonneville
Offset is basically the position of the hub mounting surface. its measures in millimeters. I'm running +38mm offset, which means the hub mounting surface (were the bolts go in the rim) are 38mm to the outside of the center of the rim.

did i confuse you? see how most rear wheel drive cars have a deep lip on after market wheels called deep dish? thats considered negative offset since the center were the bolts sit are to the inside of the center of the wheel

You should be fine with 114.3 with centering rings (In MY opinion). looking at the website They come in 35mm offset, not sure how good that would fit

I actually wanted deep dish rims but i bet they wouldnt work on a bonneville its a shame cause i bet it would look nice on them btw if i go with these what tires do you recomend that will not make the sidewall look too big and tacky on them. like the tires you have are really nice not too fat you know... so these rims will be more in than out? I actually wanted it cause i wanted some flush lookinbg wheels on my car :/ i was gonna put 8.5 infront and 9.5 in back to make the back look wider but i guess thats dumb on a fwd even just for looks huh? lol and too bad they wouldnt fit :/
