Ok, so I'm about to get some new tires for for the rear. I'm running 245/45R20 at the moment but I want tire that fills out the rear fender well better. Basically I want more side wall. So I was hoping someone could point me the direction of the best looking tire for the rear! Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Nice car! It all depends on the width of your wheel. If they are 8" then you better stay there. s
If 9" 275 40 20 is as big as you can go. Safely.

To be completely honest I don't have the best knowledge when it comes to tires and sizes and everything, I'm more of a cosmetic guy myself. Where would I find out if they're 8s or 9s? I know it's the 20 inch rims that came with "classic" package.

Those wheels are 8” wide

You could run a 255/45/r20 if you wanted, it would be slightly wider and taller than the front but not a night and day difference

Yea, I wasn't really sure. I know there wouldn't be a huge difference but I figure any little bit would help just to make the rear look alittle more aggressive. I just wanted to make sure because I most definitely want to avoid any rubbing situations. Plus I figure spending alittle more on a good rear tire will help because I'm about to put it on the drag track.

I recently went 315s but I also got a replica 11x20 for it also 27mm offset..Fits like a champ, no issues (2016 SRT)

Honestly, you won't get any noticeable difference with 255's, you'd want to go wider wheels if you want tires that make a difference.

I changed rims and got 10.5 inch wide +25MM offset for the rear and 9 or 9.5 for the front, can't remember the front as that is no big deal. I run 315/35 R 20 on the rear and 245/45 R 20 for the front.
I want to run "Pizza cutters" on the front but can not find a good tire in 4" width that is the same height.

So pretty much what I've gathered from everyone is to get the desired look, I need to buy some 9 or 10 inch wide rims. I like the profile of the rims in front so all I need is a set for the rear.

Listen ........... you said you were looking for bigger SIDEWALL not width correct. So the wheel width is a non issue. The issue is , these cars come with for all intents and purposes a 29” diameter wheel/tire . On a 20” wheel you are not going to find a much bigger sidewalk without venturing into truck tires. If you want a bigger sidewall find a set of 17x9’s or 18x10’s and run a 305/45 or 50.

you can not get the factory rims in 10.5 inches so I would suggest buying a whole set. 10.5 inch I believe is the minimum for a 315 to be mounted on.

Well I'm definitely not opposed to some offset wider rims period. I guess for now I'll just stick with what I'm running till I find some bigger rims I really like. Thanks for all the help btw!

Yes, 9 to 10 inches in the rear. Depending on how WIDE you want to go. IF you are getting new go for more than 9 just in case. The 8s are fine on the front. Leave that alone. Should look real good! Show us if you git er done.

Yea, want to keep the front at 8's and I think it would give it a better stance with 10's on the rear.
