LOL! IF I had the vin of an SE and SLE model for 04 and 05 each I could put an actual count up. The VIN site I posted here earlier uses GM data released to parts stores. But you have to enter a VIN for a specific model to get the count.

I like how the Wiki pages says the Impala was a full size car. Hahaha...NOT! It hasn't been full size since about 96 or so. Once they brought it back in the 2000'* it was on a W-body platform, making it a midsize.

I didn't read through the whole thread, but do the wheels from Tirerack.com come with tires too?
If not get the GXP wheels if those tires are good.

I also suggest checking into the price of chrome KV5'* -I could swear they were only $150'ish this fall when I checked on them for a friend.
