So, I'm pretty interested in these ... http://chicago.craigslist.org/.....16611.html

Only thing is that he doesn't have the lug nuts for them. He said he used his stock lug nuts. So i'm assuming he had stock 17" wheels. I have the 16" factory rims. He said they would fit, but i'm clueless.

Anybody have an answer? or know what kind of lug nuts I would need to get for them?

- Thanks

should be able to use the factory lugs, but you'll end up with the ugly OEM nuts. You can buy aftermarket for around $20 (higher as you get better quality)

tire width will fit fine, diameter will be about 1" shorter than stock. 0.9" to be exact. Car will sit about 1/2" lower and you will have about 1/2" more wheel well gap

Thanks PBSS. I'm just gonna go ahead and buy some black ones. Do I just need to find lug nuts for a 5x115 pattern?

Bolt pattern won't matter. You'll need the thread width and pitch, I don't know it off the top of my head. And the wheels will have either a conical or ball seat for the lugs, most likely conical for most aftermarket rims.

m12x1.5

Cool

19mm hex if you want to use your stock lug wrench.
