AP1 Wheel Questions

AP1 Owner - 2002 Sebring Silver (205 front - 225 Rear):

If I want new wheels, I can't seem to be able to keep them matched as the factory wheels are. I have just been looking at 16" wheels on Tire Rack. Are there better sites for this?

If I go with a square set-up, 7.5" seems to be my best option to accommodate both. That said, which one looks best?

With a +48 & +50 offset, using the fitment guide I believe they will fit.

Have you considered going up to 17" wheels.

Thought about it, but it would be more cash and it handles just fine now.

I understand but the selection in 17" is WAY bigger and probably just about a wash cost wise, and the car WILL handle better on 17's. Much more settled and planted then on the 16's.

Just meant rubber and wheels were not both in the budget. Would love to do both, but with the stock rims I inherited from the previous owner I can no longer tolerate.

I think that your highest degree of satisfaction and performance result would be to save the current cash that you have for wheels and wait until you next need tires and go for a new 17" setup where you could, say, mount 245/17 on each corner.

If you drive what you've got fairly hard, you'll burn up the rears in about 6,000 miles or less.
