These look like they fit, but when I check ebay it says otherwise. Can anyone help ? I really like the look and the price. Thanks, Matt

The wheels might fit, I'm not entirely certain. What I can tell you is those tires are gigantic and would never work for an Impala. I say pass.

Won't work aesthetically or mechanically ? Do see a rubbing issue with the balloon tires ?

The tire is almost 2.5" taller than the appropriate size for an Impala. They just plain won't fit.

Those came off a Chrysler LX Platform vehicle (300, Magnum, Charger)

thats the right size wheel, bolt pattern, offset and tire size for them.

So, if I can get the wheels for 500.00, I can just get a lower profile tire.
How's that sound ?
Btw, thanks for everyone's responses.

those are going to be 8" wide, not 7" like the posting. Tirerack has them for $178 each

The Toyo tire are probably worth more than the wheels

This. I'd say pass. For those rims used, not worth the $.
