What year dodge caravan do the rims come from when you are converting to rear ag tires? I am trying to modify my 1969 MF.
I went to junk yard and they said the rims are different according to years. They said that they were measure in mm not inches now.

Not sure what year but the metric conversion for 5 on 4.5" bolt circle is 5 on 114.7 mm (some people say 114 mm, others may call it 114.5 mm, and then others call them 115 mm). Hope that helps. If not Tractormike will be along soon enough, he will know.

Dodge mini vans came with both 5x100 and 5x114.3 lug patterns.

And this is why I hate the metric system, a simple 5 on 4.5 bolt circle has 5 different metric measurements depending on who you talk to lol

Thanks to all for the help. Y'all do not disappoint.I will continue to look to y'all for help. I am slow to get to work on my tractors so it is usually a while between my posts. Thanks again

Thanks to bentwrench and cp7 for posted the bolt pattern guides. I didn't know what years fit. The junkyard that I get my rims from isn't that organized! When I go looking for rims they are all is a pile and I have to pick through them. I took my bolt pattern gauge along the first time to find out what rims would fit. If you look at the pictures of my narrow front tractors and notice the size and placement of the 18 round holes in the wheel disk that is what I look for. If you find a 15 inch rim with those 18 round holes in the disk part it should work. You will probably have to torch out the center rim flange to get it to fit the Massey hub as the garden tractor wheel center is a little bigger.
