22" wheels CAN fit in any large body (not GrandAm or Cavaler size) GM FWD.....but they are REALLY EXPENSIVE and require cutting out the inner fenders for clearance...plus there super heavy and the tires would be like 2 inches taller than stock

They'd probably f it but wow.. that would look so tacky IMO. I shudder everytime I see the big rims on the Riviera and super low profile tires. I used to own a Riviera BTW..
Not my kind of look at all!

The Riv is a W body, not an H. If anything, it would fit TIGHTER than ours, and on the H'* it'* not easy. Your ride quality would be absolute ****. You'd hate it from the first little bump.

G Body. It'* bigger than the 2000+ Bonnevilles even. the Riviera was almost a foot longer than the 2000 Bonn. That'* huge.

I park next to a 95 Rivi all the time at work. I've only noticed it being shorter than my car.

EDIT: Hmm, Carpoint says the Rivi is 5 inches longer than the 00+. I'll be darned. Not that they are always accurate.
