Ok, so ive seen some 300's with 24 inch rims, and some with even bigger rims! Some people have sold me that 22 inches is the biggest you can fit under a 300c, but how do these people get bigger then 22's? My first dream was a cadillac escalade with 24's, but my new dream is a 300c with 24's, can this be done or is it just a dream? Please Help and explain!
I honestly wouldn't put anything larger then 22's. Im pretty sure with some mod's you can fit 24's but why would you want to do that? I would understand for the Escalade cause its a SUV but for a car? The only car with 24's i've seen that looks good is a Rolls Royce Phantom but then again it was a Giovanna show car. I would just stick with 22's, 24's is just make the car look stupid imo.
Well not sure how much money you have, but to put 24"s on this car you more than likely are going to have to have some serious modifications done to your suspension, and I would guess thats gonna be alot of money. Not to mention the weight of 24"s, and the overall diameter will probably screw this car up. You have to remember the cars you see with these really big rims are mostly people who dont drive them all the time, and have countless money to spend so they dont really care. If you plan on using this for a daily driver you do not wanna put 24"s on it, but you do what you want to do, I have 22"s on mine and it looks perfect to me, no need to go bigger unless you are doing shows.
Only those who will risk going too far, can possibly find out how far one can go.
Hetrain, there is no way one could fit 24's on the 300c. You would not be able to turn the wheels, it would'nt be driveable. They don't manufacture a 24" tire that would even come close to working. It would be interesting to see someone try 23" wheels with the new nitto 295/30/23 tire, but i'm pretty sure that would not work either.

I largest I would go with are 22s. You can go up with the wheel size but there comes a point where the ride quality starts to go down. There is less rubber between the wheel and the road so you'll feel every bump. Even worst, pot holes (those things we have in New England) can destroy a big wheel/tire combo.
I run 22s on my Suburban and that will probably be the size that I go with on my C.

yea, i guess I will go with the 22's, even though i wish that the 300c could fit 24s in comfort. Like i said, when you got your mind set on something, you try your best to get it, and I have always had some 24 inch spinners on my mind! Maybe i ll go down to a custom shop and see what they could do, as long as it rides good, goes fast, and looks good along with still a daily driver.
