Took me about an hour of searching online to find the bolt pattern for the car. Nice to have them in here for others to see.

Great information. Have one question, would you happen to know the size(s) of the center caps or where to buy plain center caps? I have LTZ wheels and I don't plan on buying aftermarket rims either.

No idea, sorry! What do you mean about plain center cap, just a smooth face?

I have a question. I have a 2012 base cruze that came with the steelies. I just bought the 15 spoke eco wheels. It seems that the the wheel studs are a lot smaller and seems if i put it on it will be unsafe. Any input guys?

People have replaced the steelies with other Cruze wheels quite often, so you shouldn't have any problems. I don't know the steelies that well to know if the lug holes are much smaller, but that's nothing to worry about. All Cruze wheels are designed to be hub-centric, meaning the wheel mounts around and self-centers to the hub on the car. When you pick the wheel up and push it on the lugs, you should notice it kind of settle into place- that's the wheel fitting around the hub collar. The lug nuts that you should use with the Eco wheels (I'm not sure if they're the same as the steelie nuts) have a large, tapered collar on them to fit in the wheel. When you spin them on the studs, that collar will seat into the wheel. Even though the wheel is centered on the hub, the collars on the nuts help to center each stud in the holes, locking it down.

Long story short, the studs just hold the wheel on, the hub collar and matching surface on the wheel is what holds the majority of the weight/force.

A rebuttal has formed! A current owner has weighed a Diesel wheel at 24lbs. I trust a CT member for than an ebay seller. :D
Stock 17x7 Diesel Wheel: 24lbs
I was reading through the thread and just about to post the same thing... beat me to it! I would be REAL surprised if the Diesel wheels were that light since they are just cast wheels, no claims of superior construction or anything.

On another note, AWESOME job Sunline!

I See that the Eco wheels are polished aluminum like I suspected. I assume that they are clear coated as well, can someone confirm this?



I discovered that a wheel on my brand new Cruze is pretty severely marred and scratched. I can catch it with my nail, but it's not gouged in to the metal. They are white/opaque like you would find on a painted surface. I have a Porter Cable is this something I can hit with that and a metal polish?

I apologize if this is the wrong area for the question.

The best thing I can suggest is to try to touch it up/fill it in with a clear coat touch up pen. Otherwise, you'll have to have the entire wheel stripped and clear coated.

I believe the clear coat is probably a powder coat finish, but I'm not sure. It's probably an industry standard basic clear coat, but it seems some refinishers have trouble matching it.

Thank you for the replies. What it looks like is the wheel was removed and laid/fell face down. So it's not severe and I didn't even notice it when I bought it because of the position of the wheel. I'll try and treat it like a painted surface then with the PC and try and correct it.

Just got the 17" 15 spoke Eco wheels put on my 1LT.

I took the opportunity to weigh my old 16" 5 spoke 1LT wheels to see how heavy they were and if I was indeed losing any unsprung weight.

All 4 weighed in at 19.8 pounds. Wheel only. No tire.

1LT 5 Spoke:

19.8 pounds


All 4 Eco wheels were also the reported 17.8 a piece. So I lost 8 pounds of unsprung weight by switching wheels.
