Dodge rims that fit my 98 GT
Posted 14 November 2004 - 02:33 PM
OEM 16's on the GT's are listed as 53mm offset. Anything with much more offset may not clear the rear struts as it moves the wheel inward while much less offset will push the wheels out resulting in fender clearance issues not to mention affect on wheel bearing wear. These wheels clearing the calipers fine.
Caravan wheels are 15 by 6 inch with their "snowflake" pattern, same as used on many Dodge cars, Daytona etc. Lots of these sitting out there at scrap yards around the country. Will use these on our 96 OBW with studded tires as I have winter wheels with snows already for my GT.
Didn't get a chance to check any other wheels from Chevy etc. but offset is likely to be the main issue, that and perhaps the centerhole diameter. End result being anyone looking for cheap winters or perhaps a "plus 1" setup on older Legacys may want to spend some time at the local wrecker.
Word of caution being to take the time to fit one, with a tire mounted, on the car at the wreckers before you hand over any cash.
I paid $100 for the four cean wheels, no curb damage so cheaper than any
steel wheels I could find. If you're on a real budget the steel Dodge wheels might also work.
Having the snows mounted this week and will bolt them on once serious Vermont snow arrives. Will report back to this thread with any issues.
