    Ok.. in 2000-2001 the Catera had the sport package (aside from the 98-99 version). This one had the 17 inch monoblock design wheels. The Catera -no matter what year, can handle 19 inch wheels max.

    19 x 8.0 is the biggest Bolt pattern is 5x110

    Thanks, i've been checking everywhere and everyone tells me that 5X110 is hard to find, and i would have to make some mod's before i can get another wheel to fit is this true?

    That is true that 5x110 is odd sized, but thats not to say that there are wheels out there with that specific bolt pattern... just not many and they may not be to your liking- style wise. You could modify it, like they suggested.

    Any of you guy's know any sites where i can find wheels for this car? It's mad hard, everywhere i check they say they don't have anything . Also if you guys know a specific wheel that will fit please let me know.

    Also how hard would it be to upgrade my braking system to maybe a 2000 if the lug setup isn't the same.

    The wheels they show there, are ones that fit your car.

    If your speaking brake discs, they make them specific bolt size to your car, there are various places ... like on tirerack there, they have options to get drilled/slotted brakes and nicer pads for the Catera. EBC makes drilled/slotted rotors and also hi-performance "Green stuff" brake pads. Look pretty good.
