does 5x115 = 5x114.3?

i think the title kinda says it all.
does 5x115 = 5x114.3 bolt pattern?

i see a lot of ads say that their wheels will fit chargers but they have 114.3's and i know we have a 115.

Some say fine, some say all 4 wheels will fall off and you will die.

I ran 5x114.3 (old 22's) for almost a year, then sold them to another Charger owner. Neither he or I have had ANY problems.

5x115mm = 5x4.53"

5x114.3mm = 5x4.50"



There have been some who have had studs break off or vibration issues, but I guess the vibration issues can be fixed through the use of hub-centric rings.

I'd use what the car's meant to use, 5x115mm, and in all my searching for rims, if I don't find one in 5x115mm, I'm no longer interested in that particular style ...

Its hard to believe .7mm difference will cause problems. Im not calling you a liar by any means but the difference is next to none.

just have to be careful of the offset...that means a lot of difference.

There is no big deal, really. Most if not all aftermarket wheel companies have "play" in thier "bolt centric" applications of 5x115 or 5x114.3. Why you ask? Because they will have more car applications they can fit. They are in it to make money and if they drill the bolt holes with a little play, they can fit more cars. If you take a wheel with a 5x115 bolt pattern it will fit a car with 5x114.3 and vice versa. As long as you get hubcentric rings you should be fine. I had TSW wheels before on my charger and never had any problems. Hell my first set of 24" were 5x120 bolt pattern. Those had to be tapped to become 5x115, but I never had any problems with them.

This is a huge safety concern here i must say...i mean if some of you guys are running the 114.3 bolt pattern and getting away with it then, thats all well and good...but you wont catch me messing with something like the wheels that could potentially come loose and fall off b/c of a couple of millimeters of difference in the bolt patterns...its just not a chance im willing to take...the cars came with a wheel with a 5x115 bolt pattern, so thats what im putting on, to all of you who choose to go the different route...well you got more balls then i do...and i hope nothing horrible happens...

If your gonna mix up bolt patterns... then atleast use hub-centric rings or make sure your wheels are hub-centric...

Any time I put wheels on a customers car, I always make sure to have hub-centric rings in place... I do not want the liability for the wheels breaking off the hub bolts (and Ive seen it happen where a wheel shiered off all the bolts and went flying off the freeway)((on 2 different cars actually))

and I would atleast make sure you use lug nuts like what is on the RIGHT in this picture, the ones on the left will force the wheel stud to bend to sit flat / flush on the wheel...
