Default Did I Miss something? Wheels question

I've seen a few H-Body cars driving around here with Chrysler wheels on them. I think I even saw a Bonne here on the forum with some Intrepid R/T polished wheels. I guess it'* safe to say they share the same bolt pattern and offset? IF so that just gives me some more options for wheel shopping me thinks.

no the Chrysler wheels are 5x114.5. they will work but it is NOT recommended. Doing this could cause and excessive vibration and it is also possible the the wheel stud could shear off. There are adapters that can be found to correct the difference in the pattern. I believe that they are called hubcertric........... I think

I have been told by the American Racing rep that the less than a mm difference wouldnt cause any problems....by the way 5x114.7 not 114.5 3/10s of a mm should cause any probs.....but Id still hold out for some 115s
