2008-2011 SRT8 Tires/Wheels

I know there are hundreds (likely) threads about tires/wheel fitment. I wanted to share mine in hopes it helps someone.

Year: 2009
Model: SRT8

Wheels: OE Hellcat Replicas
Front: 20" x 9"
Offset: +20
Rear: 20" x 10"
Offset: +18

TPMS sensors: Schrader EZ33500- 433Hz- synced fine with car after 20min driving

Tires:
Front: Nitto 555 G2s 275/35R20
Rear: Nitto 555 G2s 305/35R20
*The Nitto tires seem smaller than other brands as far as width

I was unsure how the rears would fit. I had some interesting observations. Tipped off by us1champ, when the car is raised the suspension seems to push out the wheel well liner making it appear closer than it really is. Once the car is on the ground, I had more clearance (~10-15mm).

I was concerned the fronts would be wider than the fender but that was not the case.

I run 315s (Demon Factory Reproductions) in the back and if you raise the car so the suspension is completely "sprung" the tires would rub the inner fender. At first I thought this would be a problem but after putting on over 100 miles, no issues whatsoever. On hard turns (we are taking ship sliding all over the place in the trunk) the very bottom rear of the inner fender rubs the tire slightly, which a heat gun and some tweaking will fix.
