Wheel/tire fitmet for 2001 DHS
I'm looking to put these 2014 SRX Wheels RT4 on my 2001 DHS, my car is a 5x115 and the SRX is a 6 lug. My question is, would a wheel adapter be sufficient? My only concern is whether the center bore will sit straight on these wheels. You input is appreciated

Wont work. Wven if you could get an adapter, the rims will stick out way too far. Find a set of rims that will fit the car.

Typical GM crap. 6x115 bp. No other car uses it. Just like our trailblazer that has 6x5 bolt pattern? Why the bleep didn't GM use the typical truck pattern of 6x5.5?

Regardless, wouldn't fit a FWD Cadlac.

Generally speaking, having a wheel/tire that sticks out substantially more than stock (1.5" is not insignificant) usually results in tire rub, especially in turns. There isn't an abundance of extra room in the fender wells of these cars.

I want to see how he gets 6 lug wheels onto 5 lug hubs - and - the offsets are wrong and adapters won't work. The hubs in these cars are already highly stressed - another inch or more of offset and the bearings will fail in short order.
Why not go to a correct 18" Deville wheel with proper sized tires so you don't screw up engine, speedo and transmission calibrations ? Click the little pictures in the WheelCollision site for larger views.
