I have seen wheels advertised for Cadillac front wheel drives with a bolt pattern of 5 lugs with 114.3 bolt spacing. Our factory rim is 5 on 115mm. Can a guy run a 114.3 wheel? or are these advertisements wrong. .7 of a mm is mighty small???
Anyone running a 114.3 on their car?

Re: Wheel fit Question
I have read a post somewhere, that most aftermarket wheel manufacturers, do not make the two different sizes. It stated that if you ordered 115 mm lug pattern, you will actually receive 114.3 mm. As you stated, .7 mm is quite a tiny number. Hell, a full mm isn't too much to worry about. As long as the hub diameter, and the offset is correct, you will not have a problem.
to further complicate this question, and not to hijack the thread...i am looking at putting new wheels on my 93 seville, and i see alot of people saying that the rims are interchangeable between the CTS, 05 STS, and the 86-04 FWD cad's...I thought the offset would be different for the FWD vs RWD cars...am i missing something?
93 sts: i put some 17" x 7.5" :115x5 bolt patern 40mm offset, they fit perfect. try the tirerack.com, good selection. I mounted 245/45 tires... awesome!! Add some eibach springs up front(not on the rear) for the look!!
