The rim size is 17x7, but the bolt pattern is not given. I have e-mailed him with the question, but have yet to hear from him. Nice thing is they are fairly local, and no shipping!
I stopped by Tires Plus and they had an Intruige on the rack. They stuck a rim with a 114mm bolt pattern on and it fit like a glove. So I'm thinking if these rims are anywhere between 114mm and 115mm, I'm buyin 'em.
Does anyone look at the offset of wheels? That doesn't seem to come up much. I'm sure the GM Bonnie wheels a few have would have the same offset, or an offset appropriate for the width, but aftermarket may not. The offset can determine rubbing, but more importantly has a lot to do with the ride as the suspension travels. I just never hear anyone mention it.
And isn't it possible with 114 mm wheels, that the wheel studs fit through, but that the lugs don't center? They may only press on one side, or maybe one lug centers and the rest don't? A mm isn't a huge difference, but not a small one either.
This was an e-Bay auction my dad had bid on. I guess the auction closed last night and didn't meet the guys reserve. He e-mailed my dad and offered him a 2nd chance to buy at the price of my dads last bid. SWWWWEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!! Looks like I'm going to have chromies before Christmas. Tires are another story, but at least I'll have the rims!
LOL...Not rich at all. Been selling all the parts off my wrecked Bonneville and have made just over $1000. I found the rims on e-bay and showed them to my dad. I never knew he bid on them. He or I never expected the offer at $317. I think someone needs some Christmas money!! His loss is my gain.
I know the standard classic wheel is 16 x 7 with a 5 x 115 bolt pattern. Does anyone know what the offset is ? - I think it's usually measured in millimeters like the bolt pattern. I read on AF that it was 52mm negative offset - but I'm not sure if this is right.
