Hello im new here. Got my R/T (2017) few weeks ago & i love it...can't stop driving it. I already did a mid muffler delete that sounds great.

Next what i want to do is get bigger wheels in the back.

My knowledge in cars is very low.

Can anyone tell me what size / tire to get im looking for a wider look but also for it to sit nice. Can i get a bigger tire on the stock rim that it comes with ? or would i need a new rim. Also if u can send me a trusted source as well idk where I should be buying rims/tires from.

Thank you.

315 in the back with a 20"x10.5"+22mm offset works without any rubbing. As for place to buy wheels and tires I have used Discount Tire for tires and Factory Reproductions for my knock-off demon wheels.

The 315/35R20 would be the same height as stock tires, so lowering not required...but makes it look great! :)

im first going to lower my car with eibach sportline kit (it should lower it -2.0) like this
. Then im going to get drilled slotted rotters & later the demon wheels. Not sure if i just want 2 in the back or go with all 4. Ill have to see what the future holds. Hope it all turns out well.

Be aware with a 2" drop, you will almost assuredly need additional parts to get a correct alignment (Adjustable control arms, camber bolts/bushings)

Talk to the shop you pick to install it. They'll likely be able to advise is their history shows you'll need additional parts. Assuming they do suspension work often, they could likely source needed parts. I'll list some links, but they are not the only available choices






Either Control arms or bolts for the front/ bushings for the rear. Obviously the bolts are much cheaper than the control arms. Discuss with your shop ;)

Thanks for all the help. Glad it’s not in the thousands range. I’m going to see what the shop will tell me.
