I could not find any information stamped on any of the replacement rims, other than the words "Chrome Tech." As such I didn't bother looking at the OEM.
In any case, I mounted the 40mm rim to a front hub. It clears the outer tie rod end by like 1 mm. And I'm not comfortable with that. So I switched, placing the 60mm on front. It was clear of the tie rod end. But the 40mm rims won't mount on the back. They don't clear the car.
So I'm done w/these. Gonna sell them (and my 60mm bolts) and buy 2 new tires for the OEM rims.
Oh, and when I drive now, I'm getting a fun and exciting grind from my left rear hub; the one where I put the 60mm bolt into the 40mm rim and I tightened into things that never should experience those bolts. Here's hoping it's not too difficult a repair....
Thanks for all the help.
