Rims For A Trep

I was thinking about what crossfire and 300c rims would look like on a trep so took a '93greenES' pic of his trep:




And did some photoshop'ing:

Crossfire:


300c:


What do ya think?

I would assume that the Crossfire rims would not fit for the same reason we can't use Prowler rims, they are offset for a RWD car

the back spacing is different, the Prowler and Crossfire are rear wheel drive and have a lot different offset then the Intrepid

WHat does this mean??? Will the wheel not stick out far enough or too far? Can this be changed?

ok, here is the deal, offset is the amount of spacing from the inside of the rim top the inner lip, think of putting your rim face down on the ground and measuring how deep the "bowl" is

all year LH cars used between a 33 and 40MM offset

Prowler wheels are Front 31mm offset, Rear 19mm offset

what this means is that even the front wheels do not have enough rear spacing to fit our car. you may be able to get them to fit with spacers but honestly this will end up pushing the wheels out which in my opinion will look very bad

No way are you going to be able to get those 19 offsets to fit on our cars without a ton of work

Let me also add that you aren't going to find prowler rims cheap anywhere

Bottom line, just cause they are off another MOPAR product does not mean they will work. We have had one member discover the hard way that even PT cruiser wheels will not fit our cars.

Personally, I like those alloy silver star rims. I've got them on my car, but they're pretty ugly (Burnt, chipping, and dull). If I could get my hands on a set of those brand new, I'd be a happy guy. But I'd never go to the dealer for them, they are $500 a piece at least.

I am heart broken...for my sake I hope you don't know what you are talking about. I have a set of Prowler Rims, when winter is up I was gonna get tires and install them. What can I do to make them fit? Are there any fabricators out there with ideas.
