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

Hmmmm Well will they work on a LT 5lug with the LSJ 18" Rims?
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).

Hmmm I thought they were the sime size and offset as the LNF

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

You have the same knuckle as an ss/sc and they bolt to an ss/sc just fine

You would need to drill out a 4x100 pattern on a pair of TC rotors, or contact R1Concepts as they will take blank TC rotors and srill them 4x100 for an extra 20 bucks a rotor. If you do not have rear disc brakes, this probably int the best option for you as the brkae bias is waay off for the brembos with a rear drum setup. Also, I think your master cylinder in much smaller, and probably could not deal with the larger fluid volume.

So, do they bolt up? Yes. Is it worth the trouble? Probably not.

he just reminded me, take a look at the Scion Xb TRD rotors and calipers, i believe they are 4x100 and they wouldnt be to "juicy"

just because the lug pattern is right doesn't mean they'll fit. Scion rotors are teensy, and suck.

You need to take into account the overall diameter of the rotor, the size of the center hat, the offset, etc etc.

You're best buying blanks and doing it that way. I still don't recommend it.
