    I’d be interested to know why Chrysler, at the time, chose 5x115 bolts pattern for LX cars.

    The classic Challenger, from what I found, uses 5x114.3 patterns.
    Non of Mercedes cars, also from what I found, use 5x115 patterns.

    Good and reasonably priced 5x115 wheels are hard to find, and custom forged wheels are expensive and hard to resell.

    Although Chrysler used some Mercedes engineered components, hubs and brakes could be sourced from current suppliers, and those components would dictate bolt pattern

    The OEM Chrysler offsets are all over the map. Seemingly dependent on width and diameter. I would not be afraid of slightly different offsets when used in pairs, or sets of 4.

    Earlier cars used SKF hub assemblies, a decidedly American company, just as Timken is. I wouldn't be too surprised if Chrysler went to the 115 mm size in order to keep lunatics from putting Ford rims on a Dodge ...
