Question about 2006 Dodge Magnum

1 Answer

I want to mount 18 Inch Chryser 300 Wheels on a base 2.7 Magnum

I own a 2006 base model Ddoge Magnum with the 2.7 liter engine. It has stock 17 inch steel wheels with wheel covers. I would like to remove the 17" wheels and tires and mount 18" stock wheels and tires that came off of a 2005 Chrysler 300. While the lug pattern is the same, they do not fit in the front because the tire from the 300 hits the Magnum suspension. Is there a different spindle or hub that is on the 300 that I could put on the Magnum?? I note that the rotor hub on the Magnum appears flat, while the rotor hub on the 300 is pushed out farther from the caliper etc. Does anyone know what has to be done in order to mount the 18" aluminum wheels from the Chryslert 300 onto the Magnum?

More than likely you'll need to install some spacers to prevent the rubbing...

I want a wider tire,what would be best ?? On a 03/buick century

The stock wheels are 15 x 6 inches so you are quite limited on tire choices unless you go to a larger wheel such as a 17 x 8 inch.

With the 15 x 6 inch wheels the best option is 225 - 60 -15 but this will give you a slightly lower rolling diameter than the original stock tires at 205 70 15. The 225 is a good width for that car though and 225 60 15 is an approved size on a 6 inch wheel.

What size tyres camaro 1997 3800rs v6

The wheels could have been changed on the car from the standard original factory set and hence the tyre size may not be the standard factory original size.
The size of the tyres on the vehicle now is moulded into the side wall of the tyres and is easy to read.
Check all 4 tyres because larger size tyres may have been fitted as a pair to the rear.

The size might read - for example 245 45 18 or 235 45 17 (there are a huge number of sizes for each model of tyre).

The first 3 numbers are the width of the tyres in mm eg 225 mmm or 235 mm and so on. The second 2 numbers are the tyre profile size or ratio (which can be 70 65 60 55 50 45 40 and so on. The third number is the wheel diameter size. If you have 18 inch wheels on the car the tyres will read 18 or if they are 17 inch wheels the tyres will read 17 and so on.

Speedometer appears to register 15 miles less than actual speed

If you have replaced your stock size tires with oversize aftermarket tires and wheels (17 inch stock wheels to 22 inch wheels, etc) you need to have the computer reflashed to compensate for the larger tire size. Larger tires turn slower to maintain the same groundspeed, giving a false speed reading.

Range Rover Sport Pinion and introduction

This new five-passenger premium sport-utility vehicle filled a price gap between Land Rover's LR3 and its ultraluxury Range Rover models. In fact, the all-wheel-drive Range Rover Sport was smaller than either, designed to compete with "high-performance" SUVs such as V8 versions of the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne, as well as Cadillac's SRX. Based on the seven-passenger LR3's body-on-frame structure, the Range Rover Sport came as the HSE model with a 300-horsepower, 4.4-liter V8, and in Supercharged trim with a 390-horsepower, 4.2-liter V8. Both engines were sourced from Jaguar, which was owned by Land Rover's parent company, Ford. A six-speed automatic with manual shift gate was the sole transmission. All-wheel drive with low-range gearing was standard, and included Land Rover's Terrain Response system, designed to automatically tailor AWD performance to specific off-road conditions. Also included were a height-adjustable air suspension, antiskid/traction control, and antilock four-wheel disc brakes. The Supercharged model came with 20-inch wheels and Brembo-brand front brakes. On the HSE, 19-inch tires were standard and 20-inch optional. Both models contained front side airbags, head-protecting curtain side airbags, and a navigation system. Standard on the Supercharged model and available for the HSE were wood interior trim, heated seats, and Land Rover's Dynamic Response suspension system, designed to counteract body lean in turns. Satellite radio, wireless cell phone link capability, and rear DVD entertainment were options. Adaptive cruise control was available for the Supercharged edition.
