Question about 2000 Chrysler Sebring
Regarding your measurement: It does not matter what numbers you come up with unless you are buying without actually being where the new wheels are. What is important is that you measure the exact same way every time to match what you have. Your tires are plenty wide so I would not go wider there. Most important is to maintain the proper offset (the distance from the edge of the wheel to the mounting surface) A wheel that extends too far outboard can hit the fender on bumps and hard turns...Too far in can cause wheel to contact brake caliper. You may be able to use a 15" wheel, but may have the same clearance problem if you do.
The other important item to consider is the size of the center hole...It must be the same size as the hub or it may not fit over it.
One thing often forgotten is that varying tire size will change your final drive ratio. At minimum it will throw off your speedometer. At worst, it will influence your engine control as the speed sensor will tell the computer one thing and the remainder of the sensors will be telling it something else. Best option is to stick with a tire/wheel combination that is close to what you have size wise, and just buy something that you like as far as design.
