The bolt pattern for a 2015 Chrysler 200 is 5x110mm (5×4.33-inches). That means each wheel has five bolts that form a 4.33-inch diameter.
You’ll need this information if you’re shopping new wheels for your Chrysler 200. It also has a center bore of 65.1mm (2.56-inches). And comes with five lug nuts with a thread size of M12 x 1.25, which requires a tightening force of 100 pound-feet (135Nm).
There are many reasons why you may want to know the bolt pattern for the Chrysler 200. If you’re in the market for aftermarket wheels, or you want to install wheel spacers to give your 200 a wider track. Keep reading for more information.
To find the right wheels for your ride, the formula to find the bolt pattern = (the number of bolts) x (the diameter of the circle the bolts form).
Chrysler’s Bolt Pattern
2015 was a pivotal year for the Chrysler 200 lug scheme because this was the year when the bolt pattern changed from 5×114.3mm ending in 2014 to the more concise 5x110mm.
If you want to change the bolt pattern or the track on any vehicle, the best way to do it is by installing wheel adapters and spacers. I first learned about spacers on my parent’s friend’s Jeep XJ back in 1998.
Adapters and Spacers
Adapters and spacers look pretty much identical. But adapters are used to change the bolt pattern on almost any vehicle for the proper fitment of non-factory wheels. While they also do push wheels out (even with the thinnest adapters), they’re primarily used when the wheel you want to mount has a different bolt pattern than the bolt pattern on your vehicle.
Spacers are designed to add space between the mounting pad of the wheel and a vehicle’s hub either for improved clearance, or to give a vehicle a wider stance. These are normally used when there’s a clearance problem between components like the brakes and tie rod and the wheel you want to mount. The thickness of a spacer determines if it will slip right onto your 2015 200’s studs, or if you’ll need additional hardware.
How to Find Your Bolt Pattern
The way to find the proper bolt pattern for any vehicle is simple. You need to find the diameter of the circle formed by the bolts.
To do this you’ll need a ruler (preferably tape measure):
- Select a bolt and measure from the outer edge of the lug to the center of the opposite bolt on the factory wheel.
- Then multiply this number by the number of bolts to get the bolt pattern.
On a 2015 Chrysler 200, there are five bolts which keep the wheel fastened to the hub.
The measurement of the center bore, wheel offset, stud size and wheel tightening torque specifications are also useful for ensuring proper wheel fitment.
Being aware of all this will help you choose the right new wheel so that it doesn’t come off in the middle of the road as you’re driving – I’ve seen it happen.
Here’s the information for the 2015 Chrysler 200:
CENTER BORE: 65.1mm
WHEEL OFFSET: 30 to 45mm
STUD SIZE: M12mm x 1.25mm (stud thread x thread spacing)
TORQUE: 100 lb-ft (135Nm)
