    Got my one Dodge wheel in yesterday and as soon as I find a used tire for it and finish my five lug I am going to do some testing. I am going to try a 235/45 in the front because I want to lower it. Maybe a 255 in the rear depending on how that fits.

    I know it's old, but in case anyone was wondering you can get the ford CVI and mopar style 17" steel wheels through summit.

    These are ford type, have the 6" BS, so will be tucked under the car better.

    These are the mopar style, has the 4.5 backspace, so looks like more of a dish, and will have a wider track.

    I thought the '03+ 17" CV steel wheels had too much positive offset to work (+44.5mm)? It looks like the Chrysler wheels have a lot less offset (+21mm). I am planning to run '95 front spindles with fox arms and fox length axles in the rear and was resigned to running '98-'02 16" steel wheels. I had completely forgotten about this thread.

    The older 16" Ford steel wheels have +12mm offset according to the answer by a Summit tech in the Q&A section.

    And confirmed on the Dorman site.

    Iím running the later vic wheels to accomodate cobra brakes. Up front I had to run 25mm spacers and out back I have the cobra irs. The wheels are tucked but fit.

    Or get them modified and they'll fit however you want! 5" up front and 10" wide out back.

    Thanks...even with the chute off, if you know what you're looking for, it's not really a sleeper. And when it's running, it's definitely not a sleeper!

    Funny that this thread has new activity. I recently swapped my rear brakes to SN95 Cobra with Fox length axles and long wheel studs, so now I can run pretty much any rear wheels I want. But since I originally posted this, I've installed a MM tubular K-member and '96 spindles, so my front track width is a bit wider than before.

    I now want a second set of wheels for my car so I wanted to revisit what these Mopar steelies look like on my car, and I'm reminded how much I like them. I'm just not thrilled about the idea of 245 tires on 7" wheels.

    I also find it odd that Dorman lists them as 5x114.3 lug pattern whereas the stock Mopar wheels are 5x115. I wonder if they're just rounding up?

    Nice, who did you have modify them? What size tire are you running on the front?
