Just an F.Y.I. The 15" rims on the van may *look* like Z26 wheels but they have a different bolt pattern.

Beretta Z26 wheels are 16" and have a bolt pattern if 5X100.

Lumina APV wheels are 15" and have a bolt pattern of 5X115.

You beat to the punch.  Def. the wrong bolt pattern.

No they are not even the same shape. If you look the Beretta ones are curved and the Lumina one are more pointed.

Hey I just had an idea! If you do the F body big brake swap you can run these wheels on the front and "match" your Z26 wheels in the back... That is IF they clear the brakes. I think the impala's had 15" steelies that clear the brakes but not sure if these would. But someone could try it if they really liked the Z26 wheels and wanted to keep them with the big brakes.

The fronts would be 15" and rears 16" though, but might look cool! hahaha :)

So those Lumina wheels would fit a Camaro? ( Camaro's used to be 4 3/4" bolt pattern) so those wheels would be FWD style 4 3/4" pattern???

Even if the bolt pattern is the same they are FWD wheels and would most likely not clear the caliper because of the wrong backspacing.

No, the F/W body rotors just have enough slop in the lug holes to fit on both 5x115 and 5x120.67 bolt patterns.  You *could* however go with a 5x120.67 bolt pattern if you used C5 rear bearings on the front.  That raises CV joint issues though (I will overcome that though!)
