dished wheel replacement

i got some good advice about wheel sizes on the SRT here so had got some three piece with 6" inners with a 3 1/2" outer lip at the front (9 1/2") and a 5" outer lip at the rear (11").
they are now beaten to bits and i need to replace them.

i have found a company in europe that can make me replacement outer lips in polished stainless steel that have done other stuff for me.

the problem is they can only make up to 4" outer. i can have the 3 1/2" for the front no prob but only 4" for the rear. it would make more sense to go the same all round so 4" outers but that would make for a 10" front.

i have the car dropped on king springs so it fell about 2". has anyone dropped theirs and running 10" fronts of their SRT8?

That's a bit of a stretch, Russell. Did you roll your fenders when you did the drop?

A staggered set up would look nice so consider going with a smaller width wheel in the front than the rear.

yes i rolled them so had 9 1/2 front and 11" rear so looked nice but my dilema is they can only make the rims a max 10". (6+4)
for me i then thought i doubt you would notice the difference between 10" rear and 9 1/2" front (what i had).
if i could know if anyone is running 10" with it dropped on the front then i would prefer to go with them all round rather than 9 1/2" all round or a selection of both.
