Default FYI - Dodge Magnums+ 300C use 5x115 Bolt Patterns!!!

Here is the link to the full story.

http://www.tirereview.com/?type=art&id=2954&

I have Copied the Below paragraphs which directly points this out.

This is awsome!!! We have hope for us coming in our wheel choices!!!!

For as long as it has been in the car making business, Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth has been using 5-4.5 bolt circle applications. Well, guess what? The two new bad boys from Detroit are using a 5-115-mm bolt pattern, like the one GM has been using since 1988.

The Magnum/300C also uses a medium offset. You may be asked to put on a 5-4.5 bolt pattern with a medium offset wheel that will fit an older Explorer/Mustang. Apart from being the wrong application, it will not ride very well. Without knowing this, you may be tempted to rebalance the tire/wheel assembly, when the problem is actually misapplication. Be sure to research your choice of wheels before selling a customer on a particular style. Most wheels are not available in 5-115 mm with medium offset yet.

GM used that bolt pattern since at least mid 1987.

I believe 1986.
In 1985 the C-bodies Buick Park Avenue and Olds 98 had a 4x100 or 4x115. Rather odd -guess they realized it'd be better off with 5 bolts.

Yup, we can now put their tires on our cars. You know, our cars will actually last past 2010. When all the Hemi'* sit in the junkyard, we'll be taking their tires now. YEAAA!!
