Hi, my 3.5L '93 Chrysler Concorde with factory optional 16" alloy
wheels just gave up the ghost (threw a rod), and being "in the family
way" I am (sigh ...) replacing it with a 3.3L '03 Dodge Grand Caravan
Sport, currently running on the factory standard 15" steel wheels.
It occurs to me that before scrapping the Concorde, maybe I should try
to use the wheels off of it on the GC Sport -- especially since I live
in Wisconsin & plan to buy dedicated winter tires for this van, I
figure it makes a lot of sense & convenience to mount the winter tires
on the 15" (and narrower) steel wheels, and the summertime tires on
the 16" alloys. Not only would each wheel size make handling more
optimum for conditions, but I would also have less hassle in swapping
at the end of each season, no need to take tires off rims.
But ... my only question is, will those 16" factory option alloys from
the '93 concorde go on the '03 Grand Caravan Sport? I know lug nut
configuration, etc matters, but I'm not sure what else to worry about
(does width matter that much, if wheels are 6.5" or 7"?), and I'm not
sure where to go to find out the lug info. If it is useful
information to anyone, the tires on the '93 Concorde are 225/65r16.
It seems to me that if I could find the specs for the 16" '93 Concorde
alloys & the optional 16" wheels that were available for the '03 Grand
Caravans, that I could just compare those two, and if they match
exactly, I am good to go? (and if they don't ... I don't know then
what) Does that make sense? Does my idea for using the 2 sets of
wheels make sense? Anyone know where I can find the info to confirm
it will work? Ideally I would love to get an answer to this question
straight out :), but even just a pointer in the right direction would
help a lot.
Thanks for reading!
