Those are definitely not 20"*. They have to be 22"*, look at the little tiny rubber-band tires.Cut the wheels down to an 18" of the same style and that would look really classy.
I like that color, may have to think about that when I repaint.

Okay, I can't measure.

The Lucerne is very relaxing to drive, but it'* also pretty numb feeling. Nothing to write home about, but comfy and reliable.

No, the Lacrosse is available with the 3.8 standard and optional 3.6. I bet you're thinking of the Impala LT/LTZ which is available with a 3.9 in place of the 3.5.

The Lucerne gets a standard 3.8 but has an optional 4.6 Northstar V8 available

The Lucrene pictured is a SEMA car. Only thing I would change is the diameter of the rims, it would be 18'* instead of 20'*
that pictured is an eight you can tell by the port holes

3 on each side=v6
4 on each side=v8

Jason, I know you keep saying that, having driven one before, but you should really drive a 2007....it may change your mind. They made a number of suspension changes among other things.

IMO The tire profile is so close to the rim, you would have to avoid going over bumps so you dont bend the rim.


All I ever see when cars have HUGE rims and not enough rubber is, the driver weaving all over the road to avoid hitting the tiniest of bumps. I rather enjoy my ride instead of avoiding it.

those baller rims are the same ones looong4 has

Naw, they aren't, they are 5 spoke and chrome, but the similarities end there.
