Default 300/Magnum wheels on a Bonneville? I got some, pics added...

I searched and found a lot of discussion on it, but didn't really find a clear answer. We know they are 5x115, but what is the offset? Will they work on any generation Bonnie?

(we will find out tomorrow)

They're RWD, so the offset won't be the same. How far, I don't know.

There may still be hope however, some RWD cars do have FWD compatible offsets. Don't know about the Chryslers, but as an example, you can mount a Lexus IS300'* 5x114.3 wheels on a Camry.

The IS300 is as much a Camry as a Caprice is a RWD Bonneville, they're completely different platforms. but that'* getting off topic.

A quick search on tirerack tells me the offsets between the Chrysler and Bonne are different... but these are aftermarket wheels.

While the offset is different, 22mm on the magnum wheels and 38 on the Bonneville wheels.

I would like to put them on the 95 if I can find a CHEAP CHEAP set of tires, 225/50/18'*, but the chances of that are slim. I will probably just sell them.

get a shot from the top or front, see how much they stick out?

this test was done with the car lifted, so naturally the rim goes in a little, but but you can see the difference

This is the stock chrome riviera rim I used as a tester since it doesn't have a tire on it.

I used a hockey stick against the body panels to show the distance

and the magnum rim

mathmatically, it should stick out 1.6cm, right? but it looks more like 1"-1.5"

If I find tires, they are going on.
