i have a chance to get a set of 22s rims and tires but idk if they will bolt up, the man selling them said they came off of a 06 chrysler 300 n i have a 93 caprice, he said they are universal 5bolt does any1 think they will fit. i havent went and looked at the rims yet but i seen a pic
The universal 5 lug wheel is a myth. Any seller that uses such a term is showing their ignorance. There are at least 20 different bolt patterns in five lug that I can think of, and no wheel could possibly have them all.
What he does have is a wheel with two different bolt patterns. One is the 300c's bolt pattern. the other is ????
Most likely, it'll be 5x4.75. extremely unlikey that it would be the 5x127 that you need.
Adapters will not solve the problem either, because 300's, Magnums, and chargers all use a low offset wheel like us, and any adapter is going to push the wheel too far outward, and cause you to rub like hell.
Soulutions? The only one you've got is getting the wheels re-drilled to the correct bolt pattern. An experienced machine shop can do this. If you call one and they don't know what you're talking about, hang up. A good one will.
The wheel has alreaddy been drilled 10 times. Do you really think there is room for another set of 5?
Our bolt pattern is 5x5 aka. 5x127
Older GM cars used varied bolt patterns. Some share ours; some don't.
Yes, what they will do is drill the pattern OVER one of the patterns aready there, and then put in steel inserts. How do I know it's safe? I had 60 (count 'em) OZ Nova wheels wheels redrilled for a GP on this forum a few years back, and sold every one of them to forum members, many of whom still have them today.
ive seen adapters and spacers mentioned......where is the best place to purchase them if i need to?
Are you paying attention at all? Adapters will not fix the problem. The offset is too low, and adapters will push the wheels too far outward. Unless you like having your tires rub, or lift the car 2 inches. And lifting a car to make some improper mess fit is GHEY.
so redrilling is the only option.
does anybody in the south florida area have a recomendation for me??
i will contact the machine shops i am familiar with tomorrow as well but a recomendation is great. thanks in advance, Tom.
