This was the first Caprice I got and also the first new set of wheels that I tried out. Saw these 19" around on lots of Malibu's, and after researching I started finding that same year Camaro's, Impala's & Buick's all had the same bolt pattern and hub bore. 245-40-19 Falken Azenis are fitted here, and I have also mounted 255-40-19's with no clearance problems. Offset sits these a little further out from the hub than Caprice wheels, but they still work great. This was taken a while ago, and I have since mounted a set of 2015 Impala wheels that I had powder coated Gold to match the front Chevy logo (pics taken at wheel shop). Got three from a wrecked 2015 Impala from a local wrecker for $75 each with dings and scratches, then I found a fourth online and went gold since I had to get them refinished anyway.

Silver wheel pics are a test fit before painting...still had the stock 235-45-19's from the Impala. The side pic shows the offset a little better. Will upload pics with the Gold wheels when I get all springs loaded.

I love that Gold look. I was just looking at a set of CCW's in a dark bronze but it won't look good on my Hugo Blue.
