GM basically used 2 bolt patterns on their cars..5x4 3/4 and 5x5 inch....The larger ones were on the larger cars (Caddys, big Buicks etc) and the smaller on Chevelles, Skylarks etc...There are other patterns for smaller cars.....and the front wheel drive stuff.
In other words, you are going to have to be more specific

Front wheel drive Buick?...I am thinking even if the bolt pattern fit, the offset of the wheel would be way off

Worth a shot,the rims on the Buick are nicer than my stockers,still 14s but,five spoke is nicer than hubcaps any day of the week Gonna stuff a small block into the S10 soon so after the tranny and rear end I'll need atleast 15s but there nice looking rims,just checking first instead of spending the time tryin and comin up short,ya know? !? Thanx.

Not even close. The Century uses a 115 mm metric bolt pattern, the S10 is 4.75. But at least the offset on the FWD wheels would be waaaay wrong.
