I'm thinking of getting a set of these for my Riv:



Here are the specs:
Wheel Diameter: 17”
Wheel Width: 7”
Bolt Pattern: 5x115
Offset: 46
Hollander: 4092
Fits: 2008-11 Buick Lucerne

Seems like they would fit the Riv, but I'm a little worried about the offset. Could there be something else I'm missing that could make them not fit?

the only issue I can think of is tire rubbing on the inner wheel well or a control arm or some such. Lucerne and Riv are (close) cousins, turns out. Lucerne and Park Ave are fraternal twins.

I have 2007 Lucerne CXS 18" rims, they fit perfectly.

Stock offset for the 7" wide Riviera wheel is 38-40 mm. 6mm is like a 1/4". Should be no problem. Just to be on the safe side, take a look at what clearance you have on the inside of the tire now. It will move 1/4" towards the inner fender.

My summer rims are Cadillac STS 7" R16 ones with ET51. No problem at all.

Thanks for the feedback, guys! Yeah, I think those rims I identified will work fine. I read this entire thread looking for rim ideas. Very subjective, of course. Larger rims make the Riv look more contemporary, which is good, but 18" rims a bit too contemporary, I feel. I want to hold onto a bit of a retro look. I also want more classy than sporty. I'm hoping those Lucerne wheels will give me what I'm looking for.
