Hi 07fusion. :wavey: If they are 5X115, no, they won't work.

Good luck with your wheel search! :cheers:

actually they were 5 on 114.3 i bought them and have them mounted, they are zenetti flows with 245 35 20 tires on them. thanks for your replies. i will have to get some pics and post them up. i found out zenetti didnt make that wheel in 5 on 115 only a 5 on 114.3 so the seller was giving me wrong info. thanks again

the ride is actually a little firmer but not as bad as i was expecting. i have 2 kids i put in this car on a daily basis so i was concerned. i am very pleased and the car feels so much less floaty and tighter. not too mention looks like a totally different car. will get some pics soon rained today so i will clean it up and get them posted.

Got pics of them? I love seeing good looking 20's on cars as long as they're not ghetto-fabulous.

245/35/20 is not that thin of rubber. It is better than the 225 that they reccomend you put on there. Of course I am used to running 215/35 on my mini truck, so the 245 is alot of rubber to me.

the 225 is the with of the tire not height. this is generally what your looking at in difference:
Stock: 225/50R-17
Sidewall: 4.4 inches
Radius: 12.9 inches
Diameter: 25.9 inches
Circumference: 81.2 inches
Revs p/mile: 780.0

Aftermarket: 245/35R-20
Sidewall: 3.4 inches
Radius: 13.4 inches
Diameter: 26.8 inches
Circumference: 84.0 inches
Revs p/mile: 754.0

The Closest to stock size is 245 in tire height is:
Recommended 245 type = 245/30R-20
Sidewall: 2.9 inches
Radius: 12.9 inches
Diameter: 25.8 inches
Circumference: 81.0 inches
Revs p/mile: 782.0

zgoing with a 245 the closest to stock height would be a 30 but reguardless the 245/35 or 245/30 are both thinner than the 225 but the 225 isn't as wide.
