Stock Wheels

I just purchased my daughter an 2007 Cobalt.
She promptly struck a curb and bent a rim.
my question is the car appears to have 16inch
steel wheels with a plastic cover in a 5 spoke style.
The wheels appear to be 5 lug as well.
But evrything I find online says they are 4 lug.
Are they 4 or 5? Its not an SS.

True. The LS came in 4 lug, having the rear drum in the back for brakes. The LT came with a 5 lug with rear disc. I have not seen an LS with rear discs and 5 lug ever since I have owned my balt.

Thanks all. It is 5 lug she brought the car by this afternoon.
My confusion was that most of the info said it should be 4 lug.
It is an LT but I don't know how to tell if its a 1 or 2.
Should the stock 5 spoke wheels be hard to find? Becouse
I am not having any luck finding any around Tulsa. Found one
an hour away but they want $150 for it. Seems kinda high to me
for a stock wheel.

You can always offer $100, I don't see many people selling just one wheel, check ebay and places like LKQ.

Also if your daughter works she should pay for the shit she breaks...

My '06 base G5 is 4-lug w/rear drums. Never seen a set of proper rims in her life.

How badly did she bend the wheel? They can sometimes be beaten out with a torch and a good ball-peen hammer.
