I've been waiting since October and the tired finally came in. Threw them on yesterday, and WOW I am impressed. I LOVE the look. I took some pics in the late afternoon even tho it's really dirty, hope to get better ones. Oh, and yes the center caps will be changed eventually. Without further ado...















For those that don't know, they are Charger R/T Daytona wheels, 18x7.5 with a 25mm offset, which no one thought would fit Laughing and the tires are Bridgestone Potenza Grid G019 in 235/45/18.

So I need to get the rear fenders rolled. It rubs a little on big bumps, but I don't forsee a problem after getting them rolled. What do you think? Twisted Evil

They look pretty good, but you gotta lose the Dodge Center caps and the SS badges...

look great!!!

Dont know what you are doing for center caps, but www.billettechnology.com makes nice caps for these wheels. They are a bit pricy but their workmanship is insane and you can get them with custom logos and stuff.

Those look really good on there. I like it!!

Your car would look so much cleaner without the SS on the doors and the stuff on the back though. Wink

This is why nobody said they would fit. You're running tires with a two inch smaller rolling diamater that give you an extra inch of fender clearance just to have minor rubbing issues. If you were running the right size tires, you'd be having massive issues with the tire hitting the fenders.. Depending on where its hitting, you may still have issues even with a rolled lip, your tires stick out past your fender. Good luck.

diameter is only 0.3" less

235/45/18 = 26.3"
225/60/16 = 26.6"

245/45/18 is a closer match to OEM (26.7")

You are right, I thought he initially said 235/35/18.

Still, if the angle of the suspension travel isn't enough to clear the edge of the fender lip because of how far the setup sicks out, nothing other than cutting or aggressive pulling will fix it.

And that still doesn't fix that there are Dodge emblems on the car. Laughing

Very nice wheels. They complete the look well IMO. Ditch the SS stickers though. Razz

The hope is that with enough comments he'll actually remove them.

Definitely need to do something with the centercaps ASAP.
