A friend of mine is Selling me his 18" stock magnum polished rims for 350 with brand new tires on them.. Everyone i talked to says it will work with no issues. Everyday rim shops run 5x114.3 on a car that is 5x115 so vise versa is no problem. And its a plus that it is hub centric. I am so excited!!!! I will post pics tommorow.

DO the stock lug nuts work?

not sure about the lug nuts but that's a good deal. you can't even buy half-decent tires for 350, nevermind rims and tires.

For all Charger/Magnum wheel users...
Make sure they are the RWD wheels and not AWD wheels.
WHEELS: 18x7.5, BOLT PATTERN 5X4.5 OR 5X114.3, OFFSET 24:
Fit-2004-2006 Magnum/SXT/RT, 2004-2006 Charger/SXT/RT,
2004-2006 300/Touring/300C
The Magnum, 300C, and Charger rims are 5x115, they will fit on the stock pattern (5x114.3).
You will need conical/tapered lug nuts.
Intrepid bolt pattern is 5 x 114.3 with an offset of +42MM-+24MM. The hub bore is 71.5mm.

Yeah they are off of a Rwd Rt... So they fit!!! Yeah it is a very good deal. He has 22's on his magnum and has had them sitting for a while. I asked him how much he wanted and he said 350. I was like ok... lol I would of paid 350 for just the rims, but he is a good friend of mine, we go back about 17 years....

That sound slike a good deal. I would pay 350 for wheels and tires. Especially, the ones of off a Magnum. I would also like to get the 18" rims and tires myself. Do you where I can get a set of a good price? Thanks

You shouldn't have any problems swapping the rims, you my have a problem with the tires.
The orig. Magnum tires (225/60-R18) have a larger diameter then the stock tires and will cause the tires to rub. You have to go to a lower profile tire: 225/50-R18.
Specification, Sidewall, Radius, Diameter, Circumference, Revs/Mile Difference
225/60-16, 5.3in, 13.3in, 26.6in, 83.7in, 757, 0.0%
225/60-18, 5.3in, 14.3in, 28.6in, 89.9in, 704, 7.5%
225/45-18, 4.0in, 13.0in, 26.0in, 81.6in, 777, -2.5%
225/50-18, 4.4in, 13.4in, 26.9in, 84.4in, 751, 0.9%
225/55-18, 4.9in, 13.9in, 27.7in, 87.2in, 727, 4.2%

Crazy thing..... I put them on with my stock lugs and They fit better than the conical lugs i bought from the parts store.... Maybe others have had issues with there lugs because mine is an 04 and they changed them, not sure but they are a perfect fit.... Also, the tires are bigger but no rubbing at all, turning the same and even with 4 adults in the car(we are not tiny people) still no rubbing and it rides smoother than with the stock rims. I think the fact that it has contintal tires on them makes all the difference... I will post pics in a little while....

The wheels and tires look so good. Makes ya wonder why they didn't put those tires in the first place. The have always loved the 5 spoke look on the intrepid. I would hate to take your idea guynlidia2006, but I might have to score me some of those tires myself. I might go to the Dodge Dealership and ask for a set. They might have some in stock. A buddy of mine told me that some dealerships, if not all of them. Have a warehouse full of stock tires from customers who took them off the dealer and requested aftermarket tires or bigger tires than OEM.
