i thought that the bolt pattern didnt exactly match right?

this is for my sister-in-laws car.. just for snow tires that she already owns. so i dont have to keep swapping her snow tires back and forth onto her regular wheels ever season.

What about the steelies on the later model non-3800 police spec Impalas? Those look like 17s, but I can be wrong. If they are, at least bolt pattern and all that will be spot on.

They are .7mm difference in lug spacing, I believe. I have been running 17" mustang wheels on my Buick forever. The fit is perfect...you'll never notice the less than 1mm difference. The center bores on mine were identical, just the lugs that are going to be .35mm off center.

I believe mine are these, except mine are all black: Staggered Set 17x9 17x10 5 Fits 94 04 Mustang Black Cobra R Wheels Rims 17" | eBay

And yes, the 10.5"s fit up front with 315mm drag radials with no spacers. Barely, but they do fit. Note, this is on a 1998 Park Avenue...I can't speak for strut clearance on your car.

They don't, but they do fit, however I wouldn't let a family member run around like that. 99% of the time the ONLY answer in the grand prix world is "It works just fine, I've been doing it for XXXyrs, and I've never had a problem".

Wrong! 2004 Grand Prix's never had a base model. GT1 was the lowest and came with alloys

IIRC Chargers had 18in steel wheels for police use. Was looking at them for the Lumina for a while. But they were hard to find a set
