Hey guys, will a wheel from a 98 dodge fit on my 05 chevy? I didn't know whether the bolt patterns were the same. Thanks.

Yes they will. I think the only difference is that Dodge's wheels are hub centric where Chevy's are lug centric.

Some say that you will have vibrations and others say that you will not be able to tow as much because all the weight is now on the lugs. I had Dodge wheels on my 2002 and had no vibrations at all, smooth running. I also didn't have any issues with hauling 1200lbs in the bed and pulling 10,000 trailer. Do a search in this section using "lug centric" or something like that and you will find some posts.

these wheels are actually a weld dagger wheel they were installed on our 98 dodge drag truck and when we replaced them i just thought about putting them on my 05 chevy with a set of 285 tires. i just wondered if the bolt patterns were the same.

Yeah, both dodge, chevy, and even the pre ford super-duties all run a 8x6.5 bolt pattern.
What's a pre-Ford super duty?

Isn't it the other way around?

Only OEMs are going to be hub-centric. It's the same part numbers by pattern size once you go aftermarket. They all seem to have a nice gap around our hubs.

You may need a spacer to run Dodge rims. Check your backspacing.

Measure from the floor to back of the center on both wheels. If the Dodge is higher off the floor you will need to use a wheel spacer at least the thickness of the difference.

Stock wheels are hub centric for both. Aftermarket wheels have a bigger hole to fit Dodge and are lug centric on a Chevy.

Ok my bad. I knew somewhere down the line they were different. I thought it was from the factory.

Thanks for clearing that up. ;)
