Default Wheel fit

Does anyone know if there is a cross reference available anywhere to see what Oldsmobile wheels would fit my 97 SE?

hard to say with the ghetto way he measured them.. but honestly, they dont look like a late 90'* olds rim to me what rims do you have on your 97 that you would want to downgrade to those?

I have 15" steelies with hubcaps... Brand new tires though, so I don't want to upgrade yet, I like the 16" crosslace though, maybe I'll wait till I need new tires.

there not late 90'* rims. they are from 86-90 years in Olds
maybe a torodado or a sedan. which should be 115mm bolt pattern.
but if they dont fit his Buick I would stay away as most buicks have the 115mm bolt pattern.

I thought they looked like the ones I had on my Delta 88... I'm waiting to hear what Buick they were intended for. Possibly a RWD...

Edit: They say they were on a 94 LeSabre but after new brake pads they no longer fit...

Eh, brake pads MIGHT. Before the new pads, the outer part of the caliper remained closer to the brake rotor than normal. Put a new rim on, and it fits. Put new pads on, which pushes the outer caliper out, and it now strikes the rim.

Moral of the story: when going for new rims, be sure to check the backspacing requirements.

True, the brake setup on a 94 LeSabre and 97 Bonnie are the same though correct? So if he had a fit problem, I would too. At least when new pads are installed.
