well after a few expensive mistakes ive found out that only a few other cars with a five bolt patteren will interchange with our cars. since i beleive that this might be a good need to know for people out there buying rims, id like to ask what other kinds of cars share our same bolt diameter and pattern so that the next time i buy someones rims off of their car i wont be wanting to shoot myself after they dont fit. anyone???????
Yeah, it's kinda strange how it works. Take for example my brother's Ford Probe GT. His aftermarket rims will fit the Intrepid, but his stock 5 star rims won't. I found this out the hard way when I had a flat last. I was too lazy to pull out my spare so I tried to put one of his stock rims on the car, since his aftermarket ones fit. No dice. Had to pull out the spare.
Are his aftermarkets a universal 5 lug? and if not, in what way did they not fit, lug pattern? SOmething else? I guess the point to this whole thread, don't buy a rim unless you're 100% sure it'll fit.
