What Wheels Fit Our Cars?

What size 17" 5 lug wheels should I look for? I want to get a set of cheap but nice rims for winter tires. I think a set of Chevy Aluminum slot mags would look cool for winter duty!!



Yea, tho I cruise through the valley of the shadow of rice, I will fear no Turbo,
for Torque art with me. Thy rods and crankshaft, they comfort me.

Cool, now where can I find vintage style wheels in that size? LOL I also like the old Cragar look. Wouldn't that be bad ass on a Balt?

i haven't found anything like that unless you go custom.

Our lug pattern is 5x110, and to be honest, tire rack is the easiest way to find what fits. You can also search under saab 9-3 and Malibu's in our year use the same lug pattern as well.

Good luck.

I saw a set of Chevy wheels on a 2009 Malibu that look awesome! They appear to be 17" 5x110 so all I have to do is hit the local junk yards and see whats available!

I like to look good all year!

Yea I cant say I'm a fan of those wheels. Not just on a Balt' but just in general. Everyone has them.

It sounds like a good idea but if you do def get mags or cragers get them either color matched or just flat black cause imo the aluminum or chrome ones only look good on trucks and old muscle cars. which the balts definitely aren't lol
