Would there be anyway to put the newer Regal rims on the Gbody Regals?

:dunno:

What's the backspace?
What's the bolt pattern?
What's the tire size?

I'm not quite sure of the specs. I don't own the rims either It was just a out loud thought I had.

These are the rims I had in mind.

Can you photoshop them onto your car?

YG, I don't think it will work (other than photoshop). The newer Regal is a front wheel drive car, so the backspacing on the rims would probably be all wrong on the older rear wheel drive G body Buick. Also, the bolt pattern will be different as well. The older rear wheel drive Regal has a 5 X 4 3/4" bolt circle, and the newer Regal is 5 X either 110MM or 115MM. If you're looking for that style of rim, IMO, your best bet would be to check with the aftermarket, and see if there is a manufacturer that offers that style of rim, but with the bolt circle and backspacing to fit your TB. Good luck.

Yeh that sounds about right Jeff. But I kind of think these rims would look cool. And I'm not even a big rim kind of guy maybe if they have aftermarket 16-17" versions of these rims.
