Wide back tire guys

Can you all post pics of the rear of your challenger, I want to get wider back tires but not sure how wide i want, or can fit. I'm sure I can fit 300's but what about 305's or even 315's? I'm running the stock 20" R/T wheels

I've love for my challenger to look like this

The SRT Engineers only recommend P245s for the front to avoid potential linkage clearance problems. However, many forum members have gone to P255s on the front with no problems. I would go no wider than P275s on the rear. Otherwise, you will have to install mud flaps to avoid paint chips on your lower rear fenders.

Here is a link to an on-line tire size calculator to help you in your decision:

Thanks guys, I don't plan on making the front's much wider if any, but the rear's i'd really like to give it the Beefy look.

I don't' drive the car in rain or snow, but I'm sure rock chips will still occur from normal road conditions.

These are 275s which is as wide as I can go with the Hop Not kit.

295's on custom wheels: They are close inside but do not extend beyond outer lip.

....no joke. I discovered evidence of chipping in the first couple thousand miles with the stock F1's & chrome clads on my R/T (very minor but I could see the potential for problems later down the road). I immediately purchased and installed the factory splash gaurds.

here you go 315/35/20 on a 10" rim
