Wheels and lowering options for 2nd gens

I’ve done a lot searching for aftermarket wheels on our cars on here and google, but I haven’t had much luck and most of the results I do get are 1st gen. I’d like to start a thread for the 2nd genners who have swapped out rims and/or lowered their cars to post their info so we can have it all in one easy to find location. Hopefully I’m not overstepping my bounds, but I think this could be really helpful. We should probably keep it as simple as possible, so please just post pics and specs of your rims, tires, lowering springs, etc and keep the discussion to a minimum. I’ll post any of the pics I am able to find here on the first post….

EDIT: Just found this site with LOTS of options! Start here... http://goforahemi.com/id58.html

I don't have a pic handy, but I lowered my '12 SRT with the Mopar lowering springs. No issues so far.

I love your car Meow Mix! Any clearance issues after lowering? Did you have to roll the fenders?

Looking at his clearance, I am sure he had to roll his fenders. But since he's on Mopar lowering springs, I am sure he has no suspension issues. Also note that SRT models have a bit more front clearance on the upper arm for larger diameter or wider wheels than base models.

Can that upper arm clearance be added to a non srt?

Love it Thrifty! I am actually looking into set of those in chrome or black for my car. Yours is the first I've seen with them. What brand/size tires did you go with?

I am sure they could, but might also need the matching lower control arm to fit.

And on a post related note, if I changed out my stock wheels it would definitely be for Vossen CV1's in 22"!
