Equinox Rims fot Torrent?

My 2008 Torrent Rims look awful,
Some rims for sale from same
year from a Equinox are available..
would those fit/clear the inside brake caliper area?
I know the holes would match perfectly.

Thx!

The Torrent and Equinox are basically the same vehicle from two different divisions of GM. If the wheels are the same diameter and are factory they should fit.

Update:

Finally got around to this Rim issue swap, this pic is
the Torrent Rim showing the clearance from the cross bar of the
Brake Caliper @ about 1/4".
The Equinox Rim snugly rubs against this bar.

Question:

If I throw on 2 steel washers per threaded stud
rotor as a spacer to bring it away, will this work?

that is weird both the 2008 Torrent and Equinox use the same front brake calipers, 96626067 and 96626068.
Are those factory or aftermarket wheels from the Equinox?
I would not use washers, you need a 1/4" wheel spacer for a 5-115 bolt pattern.

Would those spacers be ok with the studs I have on there now?

as long as you buy spacers for a 115-5 bolt pattern they will slide over the studs.
