    BMW wheels are 5x120mm bolt pattern
    f-bodies are 5x120.65mm bolt pattern.
    Some ppl do put them on, but I would recommend against it... bolts tend to run themselves loose since they aren't centered on the wheel cavity for it.
    Just get proper bolt pattern wheels for our cars.

    still is bull.
    they fit but not well... nuts come loose by themselves... if you wanna torque all nuts every time you fill the tank, be my guest.
    I'd still recommend against it.

    A lot of people put rims with bolt patter 5 x 120 and they have no problems! LIke ruff racing wheels their bolt patter is 5x120 and i see in here lots of fbodys with ruff's! Just my 2 cents!

    I once knew that man that stood outside when there was a tornado, and nothing happened to him.

    Just because nothing has happened yet, doesn't mean it never will. I for one would much rather search a little more for the right wheel, vs. taking the chance.

    As for your other statement, 4th gen wheels will fit on 4wd S10s and blazers. They have the same bolt pattern, and most of the time will bolt right up. Although, some offsets won't work, but plenty do.

    I have Ruff 931's and have had lug nuts come loose twice. Called VQ and told them, I was told to call the manufacturer.
