And don't know
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.
OK, the 2005 - 2008 LaCross is 115mm on 5 the same as your 1997 LeSabre. Is there a chance these are not the original wheels?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
They are original wheels but Lacrosse wheel are going on LaSabre
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.
I understand they are both supposed to be the same bolt pattern and center hole, if they are not fitting then they must not be original.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Center hole is to big that's correct the LaSabre is a limited does that make a difference
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.
No, everything says they are the same. Maybe a picture of the wheels?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
ok how do I send it
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.

Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.
Got it, these look like aftermarket not original. Check this listing
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Could be if so is it possible to fix or no
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
They look similar but not exact on that file
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.
If the center hole does not fit you can see if there is a plastic bushing at a tire store but if the bolt pattern does not fit there is no way (yeah adapter plates are available but those are junk) then it will not fit.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Ok thanks you been awesome help
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.
I am always glad to help. please complete the rating if you have no further questions Thanks
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I figured it out they are Buick LaCrosse Regal rims
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.
They are Regal they should still have the same 5x115mm but it may be newer that 2008. Do you have the year?
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.
The 2013 and up use a 5x120mm. If that is what they are they will not bolt up to your hubs.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Don't have the year but working on it
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.
OK, let me know how I can help
