ALL Beretta wheels will fit as will the Cavaliers.

Most are 16" however the Berettas are generally 7" wide and the Cavy's 6"

All are the same 5 x 100mm bolt circle.

thanks for your fast responce.....next question with the cav's being 6" does that effect anything??? also if the beretta has 14" rims now and i go to the 16" how do you adjust to the larger wont it change the speedo? to you have to have a tire with a lower side wall??

That should help you sort it out.

And the Cavy wheels will work just fine. Just don't "over-tire" them

Have fun.

Tire size is what changes the speedo, not wheel size. 16" tire sizes that are correct for a Beretta are 205/55R16 and 225/50R16. 205 is the limit for a narrow Cavalier wheel, and 225 is about the limit for a 7" Beretta wheel (Z26, GTZ or GTU).

I have even seen Subaru & Scion 17" wheels on a Beretta with no fitment problems.
