I am wanting to run some 295's on the rear of my 15 Challenger. I am looking at the Torque Thrust American Racing rim. From what I am understanding 295's will fit with a 20inch rim. I am wanting to have a little more sidewall though. I am having a hard time determining the smallest rim I can run on the rear and what offset I would need. The Torque's do come in an 18, but the offset options are 24 or 45, not sure if these will fit.

Anyone have any clue?

Good luck finding tires for those 18" wheels.

I believe the +24 would work. Most rear wheels of +22 to +25 seem to be what works in general, depends on tires of course. If you want to run 295s, you'd probably need to go 295/45R18 to keep the overall height the same. You'd get 2" wider, and just under an inch more sidewall. I doubt many tire choices at 295/45R18 though. The Nitto NT555 G2 comes in that size.

Yeah, I believe that was it. There's a few choices for 20in. wheels, but if you're looking wider than 245ish @ 18in. it starts becoming slim pickings.

Ya I am finding slim pickings as well. I wonder if I stayed with 20inch rims how much taller I could go in the back?

Looking for a particular brand? BFG and Conti both make 295 performance tires in 18" and Firestone has up to 275 in their Indy 500s.

They'll be thin as hell, which I don't think is the look OP is going for.
