I know the 300C's 18" wheels will fit but I haven't had any of the base 17" wheels to test fit. Does anyone know if these will clear our brakes? Might be good for winter or track use.
Just use 18's http://www.nittotire.com/tires_555r.asp or http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/bfgapp/catalog/tires/gforcetadragradial.jsptbyrne said:I know the 300C's 18" wheels will fit but I haven't had any of the base 17" wheels to test fit.

The 18" Borbet Type TS fits over the huge StopTech 380mm front brakes for the SRT8. So it's possible the 17" Borbet Type TS will clear the smaller Brembo 360mm stock brakes.tbyrne said:I could do that but I'd rather go with the 17s if possible.
The base 17" wheels probably won't have enough barrel clearance because they neck down too much toward the outside. It's the Borbet Type TS unusual barrel design that makes them a possiblility. I would wager the base 17" wheels won't clear the SRT8 front calipers, but would say the odds are 50/50 that the 17" Borbet Type TS will.tbyrne said:Thanks for the info! A set of the base 17" 300 wheels are what I'm thinking about using. The car won't be spending much time at the track so I'm not going to go to crazy with these.
So the borbet type ts wheels WILL fit on the the back of the srt8?... Can anyone tell me If they have used the 17's? Or we just have the conformation that the 18's fit?joshSRT8 said:Another member has purchased the Borbet Type TS 18' and a set of Nitto drags(305/45/18) and everything works great. I have been looking for a set of 17's to clear the rear also. The stock height set up is 28 inches. If you go with 17 inch rims and Micky Thompson ET street tires you get a total of 26 inches.
If the rims clear do you think the 2 in shorter height difference would cause a problem??
