Proper Procedure and Will These Rims Fit?

Hello, I Have A 2009 Chevy Cobalt LT 4-Lug Vehicle.

I Am Looking To Change Out My 15s for 20s and I Wanna Know Whats The Proper Procedure To Make This Transition. Im Only 18 and I Dont Really Know Much So Im Looking For Someone To Help Me.

The Rims Im Lookin To Buy Specs Are:

Wheel Size: 20x7.5in

Lug Pattern: 4x100mm 4x114.3mm 4x4.5in

Offset: +45mm

Im Not Sure If They Will Fit. I Believe They Will, But Like I Said Before I Really Dont Know The Proper Procedure or What Extra Do I Need To Buy To Make Them Fit and I Dont Want A Car Shop Bussing My Head With Prices.

Please Help.

if they say 4X100 then the bolt pattern fits...are you sure you want to put 20's on your cobalt? I would go max 18's, but to each their own. Will you be lowering your car? It will look like a monster truck if not...and if you do lower it, depending on how much you lower it, you may get rubbing problems.

In my opinion, there arent many good rims that have 4 lug patterns, i found these rims i really like and ive seen people with 20s on a honda civic so i wasnt sure if it could fit.

Really man? Those rims are HIDEOUS...sorry. I don't understand...the HORROR. anyways again if you lower it significantly then YES you will have rubbing issues. If you don't lower it or slightly lower it, it will look ridiculous like monster truck style...I seriously suggest you go max 18's. I know one person on here successfully and nicely put 20's on his halt, but he also has 18's for daily driving since 20's just AREN'T practical. And any rims that look like the ones in the pic are just..wow...fail.

>4x100
>No good rim choices.


You do realize 4x100 is more common than 5x110?
