It is important that you get the correct offset and that the wheel does not interfere with the brake calipers. You want a 44mm offset. Verify this before spending any money. Even then, the design of the wheel may not clear the calipers.



Has anyone tried rims off a Malibu? I have a line on a set of rims and tires off of a 2016 Malibu. They are 215/60/16 and from my research Malibu rims are 5 115.
I have a set of steel wheels from a Chev Orlando that fit if you want to pay shipping to Alberta... :dry:

The CTD factory wheel is 41 mm offset.

I still stand by my previous post (#112). 38 mm offset would be a difference of about 3/16" away from 44mm. Regardless, clearing the calipers is your primary concern. Also, be very careful of getting 5x115 and NOT 5x114.3 wheels. A lot of retailers will BS you and say that the difference is unimportant. It is very important!

Thanks for the offer! But I am not going to go with steel wheels. They just don't stand up to the salt. And they look awful after the first year
Salt + steel wheels = crappy looks.

Salt + aluminum wheels = rim leaks.

Take your pick.

A wire wheel and can of Tremclad every spring take care of the looks on steel rims (as well as possible...).

That being said, I went with a set of cast wheels when I found a set at a wrecker for $125/wheel ( a steal in Canada!).

I just found these on the Costco.ca website while trying to match up a more precise fitment than what it recommends. Based on the specs, they look like they are exactly what I'm looking for, but wondering if anybody has fitment experience with these?

X40875 (RT44658)
Shows that they are from a Rendez-Vous, Impala, and Grand Prix.
https://www.costco.ca/wcsstore/Cost...chment/SteelWheels+FitmentGuide_Sept-2017.pdf
They are a
16x6.5" wheel
5x115 bolt pattern
70.3mm hub
+45 offset.




Aside from the Orlando wheels (PN: 13259235) that are OEM and from the dealer, I have also found these from pmctire.com:
https://pmctire.com/en/wheels/rssw/...-noir-16x6-5-5x115-deport-offset-52-70-5.tire
These are
16x6.5"
5x115 bolt pattern
70.3mm hub
+40 offset.


Any input is appreciated! Thanks all.

Update! Cruze Diesel steel wheels!

So I ordered and just received some 16" steel wheels from www.pmctire.com, and they fit absolutely perfectly.
These were FAR cheaper than the Orlando wheels from the dealership, or even from Chevy sources online for the same wheel.

The specific model from PMC Tire is: X44655.
It's an RSSW Steel Black Wheel.
16X6.5, 5x115, 70.3, 40 offset
Direct link to wheels: https://pmctire.com/en/wheels/rssw/...-noir-16x6-5-5x115-deport-offset-52-70-5.tire

I have confirmed this specific wheel is hub centric, correct 5x115 bolt pattern, and has clearance over the larger Diesel brake calipers.
These were only $75.48 Canadian per wheel, with free shipping! As opposed to $159 per wheel direct from the dealership.

My steelies were plasti-dipped on my Cobalt and stood up to salt/snow perfectly well, so that's another option.

Just an FYI, the 16x7 MB 14 wheels with 38mm offset from Discount Tire >just< fit the Diesel Cruze by about 1/4" to the strut. They clear the brake caliper by about 1/4" too.

Diesel Brethren:
First let me begin by explaining the factory wheel that all North American diesels wear. The wheel is a 17x7", 5x115mm bolt pattern with a 41mm positive offset.
I think you may have made a mistake on the offset and it should be 44mm. This matches up with the OEM wheel on my car:

Manufacturer Part Number: 13367272
Number of Studs: 5
Stud Diameter: 115
Year: 2014
Offset: 44
Condition and Options: Mk6 (J) 17" Alloy 5-Double Spokes (Ident AAN5)
Rim Diameter: 17
Rim Width: 7J
MPN: 13367272

You know, the internet is a funny place. Full of information - sometimes right / sometimes wrong - from sources of unknown origin and veracity. For example, there were - and still are - places on the internet that claim the CTD wheel is a 105mm bolt circle.

That’s why I removed the wheel off of my CTD 4.5 years ago and measured it myself.

That’s where my 41mm offset figure comes from: my own measurement.

Well in the future I'd mention that you're using your own measurements. Probably also mention your calculations or measuring devices were off by 3mm...lol


Wheel is stamped IS44 for a reason. I'll provide photos of my measurements if you want them.

First post, I just picked up a '14 CTD and am looking for a winter tire/wheel solution.

Has anyone tried these Pacer wheels sold by Walmart on CTD? They are cheap and it appears that they would fit based on the numbers. They have a 72mm hub so I'd need to get some hub rings to make up the difference.

What is everyone using for lug nuts on the 16'' steelies? Reports of the chrome nut end caps cracking as studs poke through?
