Junkyard wheel scores: Durango, Grand Cherokee, etc.

As new cars continue to get older and old cars continue to get newer, it's about time we have a fresh discussion on wheels.

We should establish fitment and some general specs for wheels that can be easily acquired for cheap.

Many here on the forum are aware that the 3rd gen Grand Cherokee uses the 5x5 or 5 x 127 pattern. What do we know about offset, backspacing, etc.?

The 3rd gen Durango (2011+) also uses a 5x5 pattern, with several wheel options in the 18-20 inch range.

Some of the Chrysler Pacificas also used 5x5 and had 19" wheels.

Late model Mopar mini-vans used 5x5, but those wheels are very narrow and only built for soccer-momming.

To get us started, here are a couple of Durango wheels that are cheap on Rock Auto:

18" x 8": More Information for VARIOUS MFR 136570001

20" x 8": More Information for VARIOUS MFR 188320001

8 lug trucks have no problem swapping wheels GM and Chrysler.
Oh I could see the justification and how they would enforce it. But it is one of those things that is just an inspection point come time for registration or when a cop is just fishing. So stupid.
Some wheel spacers are not safe but mostly they are fine.

@Z09B4U That is a good point.
Yes but that is another big fab project. It would be with the control arms but then you are modifying a whole lot of **** probably.
What? State inspections happen once a year every year. Same with insurance contracts, albeit everyone lies let's be real here. Even Karen with a 50% window tint she got on her front side windows lies about her car being unmodified.

Now insurance inspections those are pretty rare.
The eastern states beg to differ on that inspection thing. I know people that have not passed inspections because of rust. They do not jack around when it comes to inspection time.

Illinois and their lack of inspections. Boy am I jealous!
