bolt pattern is 5x115, not sure about the total tire width on the 98'* but on the 00+ 145 is the widest you can go without rubbing, and your going to want to consider a brake upgrade because of all the extra rotating mass you are adding

the bigger rims will be rougher on your suspension, steering, brakes, and probably make your speedo show incorrectly

Any wheel including 24 will fit the Bonneville. Itz just a matter of matching the tire series (height). For 24 inchers, you'll be riding thin for sure.

As the wheel size get'* bigger the tire size sidewall will get shorter so they can all fit within the wheel well like Venom said. The problem at this point is that the ride can be a bit bumpy and what you get for looks you give up for tire and ride performance.
