    The bolt pattern is different. You cannot use FORD rims on any GM. Your bolt pattern in 5X4.75, Fords are 5X4.25, they just won't fit.

    You can make Ford wheels work on a GM but you will have to buy adapters. Which will cost atleast $200-500 for the adapters, depending on where you get them. Also depending on the offset of the wheel it may push the wheels too far out and make them look bad or even rub the fenders. So, I would suggest to just save up and buy the proper wheels made for your car or just keep saving until a set of used wheels come along.
