I saw an Dodge Grandcaravan sxt today, it had some good looking rims on it, i was wondering if them rims would fit my first gen intrepid?

Hey X to the pid - Google rocks for seat of the pants searches like "caravan sxt wheel bolt pattern"
That took me here:
http://www.discountedwheelwarehouse.com/Vehicle_Bolt_Pattern_Reference.cfm

Where is shows the SXT wheels should be perfect match for all year Intrepids. As a matter of fact, I think one member here has magnum wheels on his caravan or has his Trep wheels on his caravan and charger wheels on his trep

One thing - double check that the hub-centric ring thing matches up from the Caravan. Another member is currently discovering what a PITA it is if you don't

They may not work, when I bought the 18" wheels. I tried to use the 16" Intrepid wheels on my moms Caravan, the bolt pattern is correct, but the offset was wrong, the wheels hit the rotor.

caravans in the past had used the same wheels as the intrepid......


I have (2) of these 17x7 Chrome wheels and they fit my intrepid... ( I'm not putting them on my Intrepid just wanted to see if they would fit while i had the wheel off changing the brake pads)............

On that chart I linked to, the info was identical for the late model vans and treps, even offset I think. The chart could be wrong. But definitely verify all wheel dimensions from 2 or three sources before laying out cash for them.

I know that I read on this site somewhere that the caravan wheels are narrower(6" or 6 1/2" vs. 7" for the intrepid R/T). Not exactly the same but the Caravan wheels are said to fit the intrepid, whereas the wider intrepid wheels will most likely NOT fit the Caravan due to the wider width.

I myself would not hesitate to use the caravan wheels simply because they are a helluva lot cheaper and easier to find than the rarer R/T wheels. I don't think anyone would know the difference while mounted.

I dont know what year the caravan was but i know it was above 01'.. Also, it is posable that the intrepid wheels will not fit on the caravan but the caravan wheels will fit on an intrepid, how i dunno but i know it's possable! I just taught that it would be cool if i could get the wheels off a caravan and put on my intrepid cause they'd look nice i know they would...

the chromes are not crusaders like the trep. But the brushed alloys look identical WOW.... maybe they are wider but otherwise they look to be the same design which would make sense.

This is the crusader on the trep, sorta similar.

Oh man, I hate the R/T wheels. I've been wanting to get rid of them since day one. I can't believe so many people like "the slabs"
