Default 16 in Intrepid rims

Does anyone know if 16 in steel rims off a 2000 Intrepid would fit a 05 GT convert. I can get these cheap and I want to mount snows on them.

From what I found the lug pattern is different so no they won't fit.

If you google " bolt pattern help" you'll find all the answers you need.
Took me a couple fails to figure that out for myself. Save you the grief.

Thanks, that website shows that the Intrepid rims have a different bolt pattern. The guy on craigslist said they were 5x100. I have a set of stock 16 in steel Pontiac Vibe rims with snows on them. According to the website those have the same dimensions as the PT, but when I tried to install one of them on the front passenger side the center hole was to small for the hub. Any thoughts?

The only thing I can think of is that they did not come off a Pontiac Vibe.

According to what I can find the Vibe wheels should have the same hub bore so they should fit.

Yep, I've owned the Vibe since new and have 220000 miles on it with no problems at all. My daughter drives it now but I have a 25 mile commute so I wanted to put the snows on my PT. She doesn't have any long distances to go. I've gotten up to 37 mpg on the highway with the Vibe. I'm thinking about trying to sand the rust off the center holes on the steel rims and see if it's just a snug fit.
