Hello guys!
It's been a while I came here, just got my new Chevy Cruze 2016 2nd gen LT RS and as I can't see a post concerning the new gen bolt pattern I wanted to make one to clarify things out.

As you may know the new Cruze has the same 5x105 bolt pattern as the previous one.
Rims from the older Cruze WILL fit on the new one! Just transferred mine and made the dealer test them before I get the new Cruze.
No problem at all, perfect fit!
I joined a picture of my new car with the rims from my previous Cruze 2012 ECO. (Not the best picture but anyway, I was in a hurry)

Enjoy!

Just bought some white leds to change all the interior lights and backup lights. Also got 6000k bulbs to replace the bulbs in the projectors for a cleaner look. Otherwise nothing yet!
No window tint? I just replaced my interior lights to LED's also. Do you know the bulb type for the backup lights and headlights?

Maybe for the tint, I don't know yet.
Leds are T10.
For the headlights, I saw they were D3S, but I removed the protecting cap today and it seems to be something like H11 or I don't know. It's really hard to reach but they are definitely not D3S... I'll have to return the bulbs I ordered and wait for someone more experimented to show us a How-To change them haha

I was thinking about changing headlight bulbs too, I did some research and for 16's it does show H11. Haven't tried in person, kinda waiting for someone to do a DIY tutorial too. Lol.

Wheels totally transformed the car. LT wheels were just too small. Have you noticed the ride being super stiff since the wheel change?
I had the wheels installed on the car by the dealer before they delivered the car so I can't compare with the 16s, but I feel it rides the same has the older Cruze. Sure it is a little stiffer, but totally acceptable

Thanks man. Is there one or two sets of bulbs in the reverse lights?

Reason I asked is the Premier non RS 17's rode kinda stiff compared to the LTZ 18's. I'm sure I would get used to it over time.

Maybe I'm just used to my 18s so I can't compare if the ride is too stiff. For the winter tires, I had the original 17s rims from my 2012 ECO

How close are you to rubbing? I have 18x8.5 w/ 245/40 tires so just wondering if it'll rub, I made a thread weeks ago asking but of course not many people have even put rims on their 2nd gen Cruze yet.

I don't want one if I can't transfer my rims :p
