Right bolt pattern, wrong backspacing. Sorry. You could get them to work with adapters, but probably not worth it.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

All mid & full size rear wheel drive cars from 1955-'87 with 14", or 15" wheels used a five lug with a 4-3/4 inch bolt circle with 7/16-20 right hand threads. If the vehicle was for heavy duty use (a station wagon, a taxi, or built to be a police car) then it only had 15 inch wheels; and used a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern with 1/2-20 RH lug bolts. There where no 14 inch wheels offered after 1976. The Caprice Classic from 1988 on had 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern with 1/2-20 RH lug bolts. The Impala SS only during 1994-97 used a special aluminum 16" x 8" alloy wheel with a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern with 1/2-20 RH lug bolts.

This is all wrong. The Caprice still kept the 5x4.75 pattern until 1990. The only cars that got 5x5 were 9C1 option, or station wagons. In 1991, all full size (Caprice, Olds Custom Cruiser, and Buick Roadmaster) got 5x5 standard. They also got metric 1.5x12 studs. Also, the Impala SS was produced from 1994 to 1996. No 1997. The wheels were 17x8.5, not 16x8.

And all the information Dave gave above doesn't matter, because the offset of the 2000 camaro wheel is too positive. They'll sit too far inside on the car.
