Stock is 255/45/20 on rear and 245/45/20 on front, I hate that you cannot rotate because of the offset, so i am wondering about going 255/45/20 all the way around. Will it fit on stock rims, will it rub?, will i regret it?

any info is appreciated, i know this has to have been asked but i am not finding it.

I'm going to guess you aren't the original owner. I have never seen offset tires from the factory.

I'm not the authority on tires here, but your plan of 255/45/20 all round sounds good if those are stock rims.

Yes stock rims. No I am not original owner.
I had read online that they are staggered, Is this really not the case?

The SRT Alcoa forged aluminum wheels are 9 inches wide. You can fit up to a 275/40-20 tire on them. 255/45-20s will fit nicely on all four wheel openings.

Yes they are staggered on early SRT8s. 245/45ZR20s in front and 255/45ZR20s in the rear.

Thank you. I just learned something new.

I'm really amazed they did the staggered look back then.

More amazing when you think of the difference between the 245 and 255. I doubt it's noticeable visually

The staggered set was an option.

Standard was 245 Goodyear RSA all seasons all around.

The optional set was as said 245 front and 255 rear Goodyear F1 summer tires.

SRT engineers at the time recommended staying with this size and specifically said not to run anything larger than the 245 in the front or interference could occur during hard cornering.

I'd stay with the staggered set myself, just the way SRT designed it.

I wonder if part of it was 10 years ago, 255/45-20 might have been the only common wider size that was available.

If you like the staggered look, why not go with 245/45-20s on the front and 275/40-20s on the rear, like my 2009 SRT? The 275/40-20s will give your car better traction and a more aggressive look.

Yeah, "A Guy"! I actually rotated my rears to the front and then noticed the letters. Went ahead and swapped them back. Sigh

Somebody posted one time their dealer did an oil change and rotation and did the same thing.
