No. Differences are bolt pattern (5 vs 6 studs), number of spokes (10 vs 14) and Z06 wheels are too wide.

Are these the ones you are talking about (from the faq pages, click here (http://www.cadillacfaq.com/faq/imglib/wheels.html)):

I like them a lot too, but not as much as the stockers.

I bet the optional wheels would look good with the black center caps. Thoughts?

Well since the wheels apparently don't come with the center caps stock, pehaps now one could get the 2006 black ones for them.

Very nice looking, but your gonna end up cleaning at least once a day.

Brake dust! BAH!

actually the opt. wheels don't "LOOK" as bad dirty (brake dust) as the stockers.
With the stockers after 2 days driving they looked terrible with the Opt. wheels i can go 3-4 days before I can't stand it anymore-LOL

Is Cadillac the only source to purchase those wheels ? Those biotches want approx 500 a wheel without the pressure sensors. (wheel,caps,nuts)

$356 from g.m. parts direct. Give a supporting g.m. vendor a call.

Not trying to jack here. Just an FYI. Drylac who makes a lot of the powdercoat finishes makes an array of silver metallics. There is one in particular that is really bright.
Going with wildwheel's numbers I am going to have Viking in Delaware widen a pair and get them coated to try out. Cost for PC is about $90 per wheel. I am also going to fool with trying to make the spacer hubcentric.

As far as the pressure sensors, I believe if you get a 4 pack, they are about $140.?
