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

Spacers or no ...
Even if some ChrysCo wheels use a 5" / 127mm bolt circle, that alone may not equal compatibility.
The wheels' hub register size is the other major design consideration.
There's at least one reason why there are not more Chrysler & GM vehicles sharing wheels.
Wouldn't mind finding out the whys ...
... the AWD Astro has a completely removable front subframe.
The track width is a few inches wider than the B-body, so I never looked into it past that.
Can the track width be addressed by using different control arms, or knuckles, or anything like that?
