I ordered some new tires. And I was dying while ordering cuz I didn't know if should go 295/35 or 295/40. After a few hours, I ended up ordering 295/40. Now I wondering if it's too big as far as sidewall height. I'm trying to find pics online and seen a few. I will be running a 20x10 rear wheel..please make me feel better lol I hope I didn't order the wrong ones. Any help would be appreciated.

295/40 will look good. The Hurst Challenger used to come with 295/40 rears on a 20x10.5 wheel.

Those look GREAT!!!...What do you guys think about 315/35's on these 20x10 wheels for the rears???...This is the size tire I have on hand. I'm just worried that they would rub.

If the wheel offset is +25, you shouldn't rub with 315/35

I'm running 295/35 x 20 on the rear, 245/40 x 20 on the front. This keeps the overall diameter of all tires the same, and doesn't affect my speedometer.

Not exactly what you asked for, but I agree that a 295/40 is perfect on these cars.
I'm running 20x9.5 on all four corners with a 275/40 up front and a 295/40 out back.

The 20x10's I'm looking at have a +18 offset...Is that going to be enough???..The trouble is that the make of tire I already have on the car doesn't offer a 295/40/20 size tire...But I can get a 275/40/20 tire that's the same diameter as the 315/35/20 tire---Just not as wide as the 275/40/20 tire has a 10.9" section width...This should work well with the 10" wide wheel...I can also get a 275/45/20 tire that's not quite as wide as the 275/40/20 but a little taller....

I was wanting to replace the 245/45/20 tires now on the front wheels with the 255/45/20 tires I now have on the rear---And install the new 315/35/20 tires on the new 10" wheels...Can anybody show me what a 10" rim with a +18 offset looks like with a 315/35 tire???

for sure the 295/40/20 on backs is the winner for these cars. If the 315s had more sidewall meat, I would pick them but they don't.

I agree!!!...But since my tire options are limited I need to go with what I can get....However, the 315/35 tire that I'm looking at is only 4/10" (.4") smaller in diameter than the 255/45 tire that I currently have on the car...I don't think that I'll notice the small difference in diameter since my car is an SRT8 (2008) which is slightly lowered from the factory. (If I had a "standard" Challenger with its higher stance and gaping wheel well openings I'm sure that the difference would be noticeable)...Plus, I'm sure that I've burned off .4" off of the current rears already so I now know what the 315 would look like!...:wink3:...

Last night I did score/locate a set of staggered chromed Factory Reproductions brand Hellcat replicas that have 9.5" fronts and 10.5" rears---With rears having a +25 backspacing...I can't wait to get them!!!

Mr Greene, try using the tire size comparison tool here https://tiresize.com/comparison/. it gives great side by side and speedo differences :icon_cheers:

I bought new centerline rims 9" up front 10.5" in back. I am keeping the stock GY 245 45 20's up front and have 2 Nitto 555 G2 315 35 20's en route. This staggered size will give me the same speedo and same height. The only difference is the width of the "meats" in the back. Looking forward to getting these mounted up. Those 295's look good on your ride!
