Magnum Wheels

I read the how to post on wheel fitments and noticed there was none for 7.5width.
So my question is will a dodge magnum 18x7.5 rim fit onto a 1st gen trep/vision/concorde?
I know you probably need to switch tires and not use the ones came stock on the magnum, but will the rims go right on? I asked a mechanic on my street and he said no, but bolt pattern is the same and looking at the how to post and all those sizes im thinking why wont it? Any answers would be great.

IIRC, the AWD will not fit, only the RWD's will

ok, so the RWD will fit right on with no spacers or anything just got a proper tire size to fit? what does IIRC mean. Thanks for the answer though.

They'll fit, but not perfectly. I read a few times that the slight difference in bolt pattern (5x114.3 vs 5x115) can cause your lug studs to warp etc...also read that you need different lugnuts.

Proper tire size for an 18" rim on an LH car would be 245/45/18.

I have heard you are better off using "conical" lug-nuts because of this slightly different hole sizes and/or the spacing. Not exactly sure, but I've done this research. Probably doing my Charger wheels in the spring.
