A friend of mine is buying a 2017 Volt. It just occurred to me that I still have the winter wheels/tires from my 2012 (16" rims, which just barely cleared the calipers, and Michelin XI2s.)

Will they fit on a 2017? Or did the bolt pattern or offset change?

No.

The 2016+ Volt uses a new bolt pattern and offset. It's now identical to the previous generation Cruze.

A moderator is asking this? Are you testing us? ;)

Yea, they changed the bolt pattern for Gen 2.
Sadly, my hammer did not include all knowing powers when they issued it to me. Maybe the last owner of the hammer kept those?

They just told me I'm supposed to keep people from attacking each other and delete spam...

(Today was actually the first time I've been in a second generation car, and while I've paid some attention to those threads, there are parts of the newer cars I'm still not completely familiar with.)

I'm guessing when you switched to a model X, the need to keep up with tidbits about the g2 volt became diminished. It's only going to get worse as we now have Bolts, CT6 PHEVs, ELRs. I wonder if anyone has bought a CT6 PHEV yet. No forum member has admitted to it yet...

The only reason I can think of for Chevy slightly reducing the bolt circle size is to reduce the weight. Sure doesn't seem like enough to cough at though.........

Or to standardize the wheels to a higher volume model to reduce costs via volume discounts. Cruze is certainly much higher volume.

GM has been using the 5x115mm bolt pattern on their larger FWD cars since the mid-1980s. And 5x115 is very very close to the 5x114.3mm (4.5") bolt pattern that lots of other cars use. It is the newer 5x105mm that is the odd ball.
