i have an 05 g6 (4 door), and i have a friend who has an eagle talon, and he had a set of rims a while ago, they were stock rims for a galant (bolt pattern is 5x114), and we tried them on, and they fit on my car. so the other day, i bought some rims off craigslist. they are HP lightning evo rims, and i love them! they are 5x114 lug pattern, but when i tried to put them on my car, they didnt fit. i looked online, and found that my bolt pattern is 5x110 (correct?).. so why would the stock galant rims fit, but not these ones??

also, is there a way i can make the hp rims fit? because it looks like they are really close to fitting..

please let me know. thanks.

G6 standard bolt pattern is 5x110mm.

Providing the rims are the same size (say 16"), and how much more the rims are worn (from removing/installing), it might have been a fluke that the 5x114 rims fit on the G6. a 4mm difference isn't all that much, but it does make a difference as you've found out.

The only way to make them fit is getting a custom hub, or adding a spacer which I can't say I'd recommend for the G6, as the wheels would have to have a big offset to countermand the spacer or else once you install tires, they'll rub and possibly cause a whole load of problems.

Frankly, it's not worth while to squeeze on rims that aren't the right size. You were lucky that the other rims fit, but if they have a different diameter, it might be more of a brake caliper clearance issue than anything else. I'm no wheel expert by any means, but I'd stick with the proper size.

You could get spacers and they should fit I’m finding out I’m tring to get rims for my 09 Pontiac g6 and yes the bolt pattern is 5x110 that’s weird 5x114 fit
