Can anyone say for sure whether the lugs that are used on stock Roadmaster wheels will work with Impala SS wheels, or if I will need to buy a different set for my wheel swap?

Thanks for your guidance.

Not sure really. I have Impala SS (Dorman) lugnuts holding one stock roady wheel on my 96 Imp rear, it's not in a car so I can't say that it doesn't have any issues.

That'd be a question for actual owners Laughing I guess I wasted your time then sorry LOL

They will work, but you're better off getting some of the ones that stick out longer (like the kind for the threaded on lug caps). The factory RMW lugs will probably be recessed into the bolt holes on the SS wheels. Sometimes it's hard to get a lug wrench or gun in there. A Town Fair Tire stripped a lug nut on my car once, and then the lug almost wouldn't come out because you couldn't get to it inside the recess. Finally came out with an easy out type of thing.

This is based on what my '93 Caprice and my brother's RMS is like, I'm not sure what the Impala SS used from the factory though as I haven't had one yet. LOL

They will work just the same. I am using my stock Fleetwood aluminum wheel lugs on my SS wheels.

They look like this.

Those are way better than what I had- mine were the older, rusty uncoated steel ones that aren't as thick, that say "METRIC" on the edge. I could have sworn my brother's '94 RMS also had those in spite of having aluminum wheels.

As long as they have the "bulge seat" for aluminum wheels they will interchange Arrow
