You can, but your current rims will not likely clear the calipers. Very few rims are known to clear.

The LSJ rims don't clear. Hence why GM ditched them for the 08+ SS. You can make them fit with I think a 5mm spacer (It may be 3mm, I'm not exactly certain).

The spokes don't clear on the LSJ rims. If you use them without spacers, it'll hit the caliper.

The LNF rims are designed with that extra clearance in mind, and do not touch.

you could always just get brembo brakes that arent off a cobalt, that are for a 4x100 bolt pattern, look up honda civic or focus svt rotors/calipers...idk, just an idea, havent looked into it, i just put on aftermarket slotted and drilled rotors that were 150 and they had no clearance problems with my 17's
