I found this info on the LX site:

Steel wheels are now available for the RT. They are part# 04895425AA, 18 x 7.5 inch rim size, they are the steel wheels that will be used on the police version of the Magnum and Charger. These wheels need to be ordered from the 2006 parts books. When I get my my digital camera back I will post a picture. The wheels are black and have 5 spokes.

There are only two snow tires in the stock 220/60-18 size (very expensive), however if you change to a fatter 235/60-18 there a few more choices and about $40 bucks less per tire. I know these tires will make my speedometer a liitle slow (without recalibration)... but not sure about a fatter tire in the snow ???? The Tire Rack says they will be fine... anyone run this size
235/60-18 last winter? Thanks
I just ordered a set of 4 from my dealer. Winter's coming and they have been deluged with requests for an 18" steel wheel. They knew nothing about this. In fact, DCX just told them that they did not have such a wheel.

Here's a photo of the wheel. Not bad looking for a police car wheel:

Mopar Steel Wheels

Sorry if this has been answered before, but do you happen to know if these new police model wheels will fit the 300c SRT-8? I would like to purchase from my dealer (if possible) a set of 4 weheels and winter tires. Thanks for any information you might provide.

If you read in the first post, you will see that these rims are 18 inch. Your SRT
uses 20 inch. You would have to get some tires with a very large profile in order
to make up for the difference in diameter if you wanted to use them. If you didn't,
you would throw off your speedometer.

18 inch steel rims part number?

Do you have the DCX part number for this wheel? That might make it easier when working with our local 5* parts department

Thanks

They are part# 04895425AA and they seem to be back ordered by several weeks. My rubber came in now I don't know whether to mount them on the current rims or wait and risk some snowfall?

Any suggestions?

I understand that the right tire would have to be purchased but my concern is if the brake calipers will clear. does this rim have the right offset?

I'm looking for something for DR's for my CSRT8. This might work if the clear the calipers.

Steel wheels on 300C AWD

Do these fit on AWD 300c's?
Yes I want to know as well. I want ice tires on separate rims to make for a quick change over. AWD has a different offset than the RWD 300Cs
