    Hello don't know if I'm in the right section but here goes my question. I have a 72 skylark and I'm looking at adding 18" stock camaro wheels, my question is will I have a fitment issue? [​IMG]

    Yes, there will be fitment issues. Those Camaro wheels have a 5x120mm bolt pattern, and your Buick has a 5x4.75 inch bolt pattern, which works out to 5x120.65mm. The 0.65 mm difference is arguably not that big of deal. The big deals, however, are offset and tire height. The Camaro wheels have way more positive offset, so they will sit too far inward when mounted on the car, causing clearance issues. Additionally, those tires will be way taller than anything our cars ever came with.

    If you are in love with those wheels, you could run spacer/adapters and lower profile tires to make them work, but there are better options for the money in my opinion.

    A 235/40-18 tire are the same diameter as a 215/70-14. They are stock on the 13 Ford Focus ST. How do I know I was looking to use the original summer only tires on my wagon. You can find them cheap as Focus ST guys are pulling them off and putting on all seasons, Like I did.
