I know all SRT Challengers came with 20" wheels...will 18s clear the brakes?

With 4 pistons yes with a spacer,

For 6 pistons it will be hard to find an 18 that will fit.

Which SRTs got 4 piston calipers and which got six? What would a 2010 use?

All SRT thru 2014 model year were 4 pistons, 6 pistons is 2015 and newer only. 2010 would be 4 pistons.

Which spacers did you use?

Will police Charger steelies fit? I thought police models used SRT calipers...?

Not mine, just found the pic. Looking at other threads on this you will probably need a 1 inch spacer but not sure. They definitely won't fit without them.

Don't know about the steelies, they might fit without a spacer or might be able to use a smaller one. The police brakes are not Brembos but the front calipers are huge.

Bumping this, because it is now a certainty: I have an SRT. I want to run 18" winter tires (next year), ideally on factory (SXT or police) wheels. (Ideally, wheels bought cheap from the classifieds here or eBay.)

Has anyone here ACTUALLY RUN 18s on a Challenger (or Charger-AFAIK the hubs/brakes are the same) with the 4-piston Brembos? If so...how'd they fit?

See spacers in later part of video. He also mentions he could have probably gone 1 1/4" in the 2nd video

Just curious why you want to go with smaller wheels?

I am VERY uncomfortable with using any sort of spacers.

I have the Moda 5 spoke 18” wheels with winter tires on my 2015 Scat Pack with 4 piston Brembos. Cheap and no spacers needed. Check Discount Tire or Tire Rack. 4 winters now and no issues with them. Still look good and I bought them used. Probably 6-7 years old. No need to buy any wheels you have to use spacers on IMO.

Do you know the exact model of the wheels you have? Is it these?
