2001 Chrysler 300M Overview

Chrysler added several new features and options to the full size 300M. Steering wheel audio control were now standard equipment. The rear end of the sedan was redesigned, now including clear lens taillights and dual chrome exhaust. New 17-inches wheel and and aluminum window trim added to the exterior look, and additional interior and exterior colors became available. The 300M was now offered with a luxury group package which included real wood trim and auto-dimming mirrors.
The 300M would house the same engine throughout its life: a 3.5 liter V-6, which was built specifically for use in the LH platform sedans like the 300 and the Intrepid. The engined was paired with a for speed automatic transmission, but Chrysler offered the AutoStick for that surrogate manual feel. The 253 horses powered the 300M from 0 to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds.
Many of the reliability concerns attached to the earlier model now seemed to be diminishing. However, build quality was still an issue. Many of the repairs were directed to small inconveniences like power failures and temperamental electronics. Most of these problems were reports by drivers who had crossed the 50,000 mile mark.

    17" Steel Wheels 01 300m

    I have a 2001 300 and the aluminium rims are apparently not in great shape and that's causing my tires to go flat. I'm looking for a set of 17" steel wheels, probably used. What would work?
