I like the looks of the wheel. Your on the right track IMO going with a Black wheel. That looks good on the Silver cars.
Go with 245/45zr20 for the fronts and 275/40zr20 for the rears.
If you go with a different size be sure to stay at or near the 28.6 dia. otherwise you get to much space betwenn the tire and wheel well.
Hope this helps.

I have 20x9s. I went with 275/40/20 in the rear with 245/45/20 in the front. The side wall height is the same between the two. I really like the way the wider 275 fills the rear wheel well, with out sticking out. What off set are the wheels that you're looking at?

I've been a fan of black aftermarket wheels for a long time and they definitely look better against a lighter colored car such as yours, IMO. My SRT8 is black so I went with a fully polished set of CCW's and I still may get the centers painted a graphite color-dunno yet. If you run 20x9's all around I would suggest running a 245 or 255 in front and a 275 out back. Good luck- it took me 4 months to decide on a wheel for mine. Just make sure that whatever you do get exactly what YOU think looks good. Staggered set-ups look awesome on these cars by the way. Just something to think about.

Hard to tell from the picture, as far as size I prefer to have tires the same size all around so I can rotate them easilly.
Not like I am hitting the drags though. Just a daily driver. Also be careful of sidewall height. There are a lot of potholes that will not be filled as cities cut their budgets.

Aesthetically speaking, I think a 275 up front on the Challenger is too wide, IMO. Remember, the original Challenger was the 1st production car in the US to come with staggered tires from the factory. At 1st, I too was concerned about not being able to rotate a staggered tire set up... But ultimately decided that looks for me were more important than maximum tire life.

your car's stance is perfect! i'm gonna use the sizes you are whenever I get my r/t next week. can you rotate that setup at all? or are you just stuck lol

Thanks. No rotation for my set up. I'm not too worried about it LOL, most folks probably only get a couple thousand additional miles from rotating tires; small price to pay in the grand scheme of things really.

That really depends on how heavy your foot is. :browsmiley:

True :). The funny thing is my Toyo Proxes 4s are LESS expensive for the rear 275/40-20 than the 245/45-20 fronts. Must be a popularity thing or something?

how much are you spending for the tires? also, do you know the total mileage you're getting out of them?
$188 each for the rears, $228 each for the fronts at Kauffman tire locally. I'M on my first set, around 9K miles so far and they still look new. Great tire for the money, and are actually a car tire (not a SUV tire) so they work really well on the Challenger.

sorry to hijack this thread,cannonballcobb what suspension setup do you have on your ride?
SRT Charger Bilstein shocks and springs.

Up front, I installed unmodified SRT Charger springs. Out back, I modified the Charger SRT rear springs by cutting one coil out. I'll admit, there was some trial and error with this set up, but you can see the end result; the ride is awesome, extreamly flat through the turns, no axle hop, and the ride is suprisingly good. Firm, but not harsh at all.
