So I have been looking for some rims for my 1994 Dodge B250. So I found these Vision American Muscle 141 Legend 5 Series Chrome Wheels. They have them in the 15X8 like I want, and they have them in the 5x5.5 bolt pattern, the back spacing is 4.5 inches and the center bore is 87.1 mm. So all of this is equal to the stock rims that I have on it right now but Summit says they wont fit. Am I missing something or is Summit wrong? Im pretty sure I checked everything and am about to buy the rims, but need confirmation from some of you guys that know stuff I haven't thought of or figured out yet. Thank you frown

I don't know.
If they're the same as what you have now, they should fit.

I just did the same thing with a battery for a car I bought Tuesday.
It takes a group 48/H6, but it had a group 49/H8 in it.
ALL the automotive websites said that a 49/H8 wouldn't fit.
I got the H8 anyway...
It fit perfectly.

So even though it's not exactly the same scenario, it does prove that sites don't know all the details.

Yeah, Summit isn't the most correct place for van information. I have learned that with a lot of what I have purchased. Thankfully, Summit also has an incredible return policy.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Yea Ive noticed that many of the sites that sell rims have a very limited that they say fit my van but many more rims have the same specs as my stock rims. I thought maybe I was forgetting something but Im becoming more and more convinced that it is actually them that have forgotten about my van. LOL I mean they are the same specs as some of the other rims that they say fit my van, its crazy to me. Well thank you guys for your replies and I will keep yall posted.

I have found that making a phone call to a sales rep at these websites can accomplish a lot more than just browsing online. Summit included.

Jegs set me up with the right engine with a call.

I live close enough to visit Summit here in Georgia. They will bend over backwards to help. They even pulled parts and let me open boxes to measure and compare.
