The offset would be wrong though...
um hum, I think it'* like +15 or something along those lines, I technically can be done but it wouldn't be bright at all if you enjoy your car or have car payments

What year is the Century?
GM used to use several bolt patterns for their mid-size full-size lineup. But in the early 90s they switched over to using 5x115 for mid-size and up.

5x114.3 will fit, but they won't quite seat right, so you increase your risk of wheel-stud failure ALOT.

we are not saying that 114.3'* wont fit. they will, just not as perfect as 115mm'*.
114.3'* are the closest you will find.

i wouldnt be pissed, its a hit or miss.. the biggest thing is that whenever the wheels are put on the car, today, tomorrow, everytime in the future, alot of care must be taken so that they are put on properly, I would just make 10000x sure that they have hubcentric rings, they will help ensure proper installation
