On my 05 Impala, I have the black steel rims that come on the 9C1/9C3 cars. I'm interested in finding some 16" Impala/Monte Carlo Aluminum rims. Will I have to purchase different lug nuts to correctly hold the aluminum rims to the studs? GARY

I believe they are the same. Thread and length are definitely correct, both should use the acorn seat style

Your existing lugnuts should be fine unless they are worn in some manner. If you had the threaded lugnuts for the hubcaps you might want to replace them with a regular one, but it doesn't sound like you do.

Actually, I do have the threaded nuts, but I was just concerned with the nut holding the wheel on correctly. With the center cap on the aluminum rim I'm looking for, the studs & nuts would be out of sight. I wouldn't mind finding some 9C1 center caps, but they aren't around. I saw another Impala in the parking lot with the black steel wheels, & he had the Ford P71 center caps. Perfect fit. I may go that route if I can find a set of the Chevy Aluminum rims or 9C1 caps.
