I thought the wheels on the challengers were hub-centric and not lug-centric. If they were lug-centric then the wheels will sit 0.35mm offset (assuming only stud and lug were perfectly aligned).
All wheels on lx’s are lug-centric
They are hub centric, thankfully. That should keep the wheel running true even when using the wrong bolt pattern, making all five studs bend by the same amount.
With the wrong bolt pattern, if not using the correct center bore, or an indexing ring, then tightening the lug nuts like some do, the wheel can end up running a bit crooked since not all five studs will be bent equally.
I don't see why it would be considered okay to run the wrong bolt pattern, even if it "works". To me that's a bit like pouring the wrong oil in the engine. It fits through the filler hole, and the engine will probably survive, but why not use the right stuff?
Lx wheels are lug-centric , the will never have full weight on the hub, ever. Just so you’re aware the amount of deflection between studs is only .35 mm. So minimal you will not notice and nothing will be crooked. If you go outside and take a caliper to your studs themselves, you will see variances as large and sometimes larger than the amount of said deflection. Your so called 14mm studs measure anywhere from 13.7-14.2 making some .5mm off. Now go ahead and measure the gage across the studs. Again you will see tolerances up to and bigger than said deflection. Don’t believe me , go ahead outside and measure. Then get back to me. There is a thing called tolerance, we’re not talking about engine internals here.
Heat treated, then bent wheels studs, combined with losing the hub centric qualities of the wheel sounds like a great combination. But yes, people do jump off bridges, too.
Thankfully, not all that many do it.
Conjecture is a disease.........
Op , 5x114.3 will fit fine on your 5x115 hub. Just don’t whale home the first stud you tighten. You want to tighten them a little at a time , similar to a head. For the record , I’ve been running them over 20k and never had an issue , a wobble , a nibble , nada .....
