    Will Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger Wheels fit?

    I need to get new rubber for my van. The cost of new tires, plus mounting and balancing, is about the same as purchasing new takeoff wheels for one of these vehicles. The wheels would be 17 inch rims, 5 x 4.50 or 5 x 114.3 bolt pattern, and the tires are 215/65/17. Currently, I have 215/70/15. If I'm doing my math correcty, my speedo will be 7% fast, correct?

    Even if they fit you cannot use them. The offsets are wrong as the other vehicles are RWD and you have FWD. You willl have serious issues

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that all 300/Magnum/Charger wheels have a bolt pattern of 5-115 and an offset of between 15mm and 25mm whereas the bolt pattern of all minivans is 5-114 and the offset is typically 35mm or more. Yes, no?

    If "yes", then there's no way a wheel from a 300 will bolt properly to the hub of a mininvan.

    A 300 wheel will bolt to a minivan. There's a Grand Caravan here with that setup. The offset IS pretty cooky, as underthehood mentioned, but they do physically bolt up.

    Our vans use a 5x4.5" bolt pattern, or 5x114.3mm. I'm unaware of any manufacturer (except GM) who uses a 5x115mm bolt pattern. I would expect that the LX cars use 5x4.5/5x114.3. However, even if they DID use the 5x115 pattern, there are many folks who interchange those wheels anyway, since they are close. I don't agree with the practice. If the LX cars DO use the 115 pattern, then I stand corrected.

    Edit: it appears that the LX cars (300, et al) do use a 5x115 bolt pattern, yet many guys run 5x114.3 wheels:

    The debate rages on. I will concur with Shipo though -- I wouldn't do it. That said, that Grand Caravan around here hasn't had any problems, apparently.

    Yep. It looks rather sharp, too. It's an older generation 300 wheel, all chromed, and looks pretty good. This is the wheel. It's a 17x7 wheel from a 300 Touring I believe.

    HI~ Jason,
    so, you mean, we can use 115mm wheels of 300m?
    I also need to get new tire and think about changing to alloy wheels.
    I already saw this articles,
    http://www.300cforums.com/forums/whe...4-3-5x115.html

    Their conclusion is to be safty.
    I am wondering if it is possible.

    Funny we're talking about this; I saw that Grand Caravan on the way to work today, and took this pic on my cell phone:



    I think they look pretty sharp with the slightly different offset. That said, I would personally NOT do it. The bolt circle on our vans is 114.3mm, and the bolt circle on the 300s is 115mm. That's not the same. Over time, something WILL give.
