they should if the lug pattern is the same (4 or 5 lug) because they are GM and GM uses alot of universal parts. and if im not mistaken then wheels should be the same.

As far as i know they will fit. I've seen many 2nd or 3rd generation Camaros and Firebirds with other 3rd or 4th generation wheels.

Lug count isn't a pattern...

All you need to do is have the same amount of studs & the same lug pattern and you're good to go.

yes, but you might need spacers to make the offset right

both are 5 on 4-3/4" bolt pattern
