Okay Everyone likes the Impala SS wheels but, what Other stock type wheel's fit on the B-body's with out too much hassle (corvette camaro firebird etc etc)? I'm pretty sure axle widths vary in some models, Also what are the widest wheels that I could fit on the back of a Roadmaster Sedan?

If you're talking a Roadmaster then you want 5x5" bolt pattern wheels designed for rwd. That means the stock steelies, alloys from the Caddy, Raody, Fleetwood, Cappy, SS, or 9c1's/truck rallys. There are some old school GM cars/trucks that run the same pattern, but be careful because the vast majority of rear wheel drive GM's run 5x4-3/4" which won't work for you. Then there is a large selection of aftermarket wheels avaialble in the 5x5" pattern.

With your Roadmaster, you're really limited to stuff that uses the GM 2wd "truck" bolt pattern as Brad mentioned, from other 91-96 cars, stuff from a 1980s wagon or C-body (Cadillac, Olds 98, etc), a 2wd Chevy truck, etc. Nothing from a Camaro, MC SS, etc. will swap. Your best bet for a stock wheels swap is SS wheels, other than that, aftermarket. Cool

ull find better selection looking aftermarket. ive seen impalas running 11" wide rear wheels with the correct back spacing. i personaly wouldnt go over 10" or 10.5" wide. iam guessing u could fit a 10"wide wheel under ur wagon no problem at all

yea I've seen pretty widle wheels under the impalas, but the Roadmaster sedan has the fender skirts, would that limit me to like a 7.5 inch wide wheel? when I clean the tires on the roadie there isn't a whole lot of room with the stock 235's. I got my eyes out for a a set of SS wheels but I like the look of the Torq thrust II's a lot.

Crovo is probably the guy to ask. I do know you can fit a decent size wheel under there if you get the backspacing perfect. Most off the shelf wheels won't have the backspacing you need to take full advantage of the room you have.

BillyMac had 275/60's on Factory wheels on his Fleetwood.
BuffMan on the national forum had 285's on his RoadMaster on Impala wheels.

That's about where you run out of room.
