4.5 is 114.3 you risk damaging the studs but with that said there has been a stupid number of W body cars running it that way for years without issue,

Our 6th / 7th gen Monte Carlo's (2000-2007) are classed as a W-body car, believe it stands for "Wide Body".

GM used the W platform (W-body) chassis for a lot of FWD cars from 90's to present. Montes, Impalas, Regals, Grand Prixs....

Find out what car they came off of. There's a good chance that if they are from a RWD vehicle the offsets will be bad and the tire won't fit well.

The 06 does have the same bolt pattern, however the SS variant has a different suspension set up allowing the use of taller tires. So if you want an SS rim on your car, you have to run a 245/45/18 instead of the 235/50/18 that came stock.
