This looks like a Dodge Shadow to me.

Re: Wheels for 1990 Le Baron ES Turbo Coipe

ignoring the un helpful posts above that dont answer your questions.....


I am a big fan of Crab wheels and pumpers.

But i recently picked up a set of Kosei K6R's locally with new tires..
and they look pretty good as well.

Re: Wheels for 1990 Le Baron ES Turbo Coipe

heres the best summary of OE ChryCo FWD "TD compatible" wheels:

^Congratulations on yur project.. it's beautiful !! Really Clean !!

I'm guessing from your post that this is not a US market car.
In US that car was sold as a Dodge Shadow ES,
so keep that in mind when looking for technical advice or parts..

Re: Wheels for 1990 Le Baron ES Turbo Coipe

Welcome!!

Very nice ride.

The one in the attached picture has the previously mentioned "Crab Wheels,"
also my favorite factory wheel.

The bolt circle is 5 on 100 mm so while factory Chrysler wheels may not be common in Berlin it is common with many other FWD cars.


Thanks
Randy

Re: Wheels for 1990 Le Baron ES Turbo Coipe

Great! Thx for the advise. If I want to purchase some rims here I understand that the bolt pattern is 5x100 - whats the offset and backspace I need to know? What tire size can I run on it?

Drove it today first time after passing inspection - It is a fast little thing I have to say. Did not expect it to go that good really :-)


Thanks!!

Re: Wheels for 1990 Le Baron ES Turbo Coipe

For example - would those fit? And if yes what tires dimensions could I run?

The Kosei I really like too - can you tell me the exact dimesnions rims and tires I could run with thos KR6?

Here's another listing of wheels that fit the FWD Chrysler cars of that era. http://www.uncannydodge.com/Assets/R...TD/wheels.html
