Before:



After:



Backspacing is perfect, 5x115 bolt pattern, and the hub is the perfect size. It is a 20x8" wheel with -20 offset. Wrapped in a 245/35R20 tire.

Quick 10 minute ride says its firmer ride but turn in is vastly improved with much reduced understeer.

Thinking of lowering 1"...

That looks pretty good, though I have to imagine they're quite a bit heavier than the stock diesel wheels.

That said, knowing those fit, the John Varvatos edition wheels would look fantastic as well.

Interesting! Makes me wonder what other options are out there.

Personally though, I like the stock diesel wheels. It's a good way to identify a diesel Cruze for those in the know.

Totally the easiest way besides not seeing a muffler playing peek a boo from behind the bumper. I would have went Verano wheels but most likely found a reason to talk myself out of it.

Yup, I always look for the lack of muffler if the car is moving.

A little large for me, but they look good! Nice to know there is another source for wheel fitment when looking...

Change out the center caps and complete the look. Any rubs with and w/o people in the back?
Don't know yet. Its mainly a car for me to drive to work.

Though my commute is so much less now, its turning into a project

I really like the look with the larger wheels. I will have to keep an eye out on craigslist for a set!

Thank you for testing them.

I agree with the hoopty thought. Just a bit over size for me and a definite change in the profile of the tire wheel combo. Looks good, I would be concerned about handling. Don't normally see 20s on such a small car. Camaro has 20s but opening was designed for it. Glad your happy with it. Nice to know some other wheels probably work and we just don't know it. I have some extra diesel wheels, the wheels are less than 25 pounds each and the tire would weigh less, this is a fair amount of extra weight on each corner.
