Wheel Help Needed!!!

Found a set of 1994 Sawblades on my local Craigslist. The rear wheels are 17x9.5. One inch wider than the stock Impala wheels I have now. I know the backspace and offset comes into play also, I just don't know where. Does anyone out there know if they will fit a '96 Roadmaster? Thanks

If the offset is correct, they will fit. If they have 1/2 inch more inside hub to rim than your stock ones (straight edge across the inside lip, and measure to the hub), they are right. More or less, and they could rub.

1991 OCC 461 (.030 over 454) BBC, 3.23 posi, flash to pass, drop spindles & springs, Impala rims, Hydroboost, Recaros, MOMO/wood SW w/QR, custom wood shift knob, Pioneer DEH P77DH
1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH

What is the offset and backspace on the stock Impala SS wheel?

Are you taking about VETTE sawblades? If so you're gonna need adapters. See corvette wheel thread in wheel section.
