03 trep wheel stud spacing comared to charger wheel stud spacing.

ive got an 03 police and i love the look of the police steel wheels and i saw a charger with the same steel wheels but in an 18" rim. what would i have to do to be able to mount them on my trep? what tire size would keep the speedo the closest to the same. and stop things from rubbing. are the stud spacings the same from the trep to the charger? and im not even sure what the spacing even is. is it 5 on 100mm or like 5 on 5 or 5 on 4.5?

Charger rims are a direct bolt on for the Intrepid, I think the same applies to the 300 and Magnum ones except AWD ones.

The ones I have originally came with 235/60/18, I have seen members on here run 245 so I am guessing around 235-245/40-45/18. Hopefully someone with better knowledge will chime in as I would like to know also for the correct height.

245/45/18's are the correct size tire for 18's on an LH platform car. Any taller and they rub the spring perches.
LH platforms are 5x114.3 and Chargers are 5x115 but they fit, just be careful when putting them on. also check the lugnut tightness every so often

ok thanks so the 245/45/18 will be the same curcumferance as the 225/60/16. the speedo wont be noticably off or anything. and thats it .7mm difference why couldnt dodge just make them the same.
