Getting 245/45/20 for the front and 275/40/20 for the back on my 2019 Challenger RT. Also want wheel spacers but can’t decide was size. I was thinking 25mm all around or 30 mm in the front and 20 mm in the back. What do yall think?

Why would you want to add spacers for wheels and tires that fit without issue is there some rubbing you failed to mention?

Personally I would go with more rubber and bigger tires before using spacers but its your whip do you!

My 1st R/T I ran billet, hub centric 25mm's on the rear with the stock wheel until I swapped out for aftermarket wheel/tires a few months later. It achieved the look I wanted for that interim period of time, which was to put the wheel/tire edge right at the fender lip. Improved the looks imho alot.
If you buy a quality spacer and mind your proper torque specs, there is no issues. 25mm or larger usually have thier own pressed in studs/lugs to mount the wheel on, and the factory studs mount the spacer, where as 20mm & thinner may not. 25mm seems to be the transition threshold there.
A 20mm without them, are too thick to leave your factory studs enough thread engagement for the lug and this can leave you in a real bad position from a safety standpoint, less you upgrade to longer wheel studs.
I am not certain however on a 30mm up front even with that tire you listed. Spacers up front can compicate things (vs on the rear) due to the dynamics of steering and can place added wear & stress on steering components, bearings, etc. as you have moved the actual centerline of the tire/wheel combo and its weight outward & beyond spec.
Dodge LX platform does have a small, but noted bad rep for control arm/spindle failures, I would not want to push that inherent weakness more than it already exist. May want to go conservative or none at all, up front or just go in for a full custom wheel set up in the size that you want. Hope this helps.
