That is by far, the slickest black SRT8 yet. Love it! Those iForged? Backspacing/offset on those wheels? I would've done 22x9s on the front, but I can see how the 8.5s will show off the "staggered" affect of the rear wheels more so than 22x9s.

Sweet! That sucker dropped? If not, I may not bother with KWs after all.

These wheels are made by Intro. Scott from GS Motorsports hooked me up so he should be able to provide off-set info. The car has been lowered using the KW kit and I am really pleased with this set-up. I am sure that this tire/wheel package weighs more than the stock set-up (didnt actually weigh them) but since I have the GSM Stage-2 blower, I was more concerned with additional traction than weight. The Mich. PS2's stick really well and are quiet. The car still rides pretty decent, but you can definately notice the difference over sharp bumps, expansion joints & dots.

265/30s and 295/25s sure look nice, but those wheels wouldn't last 15 minutes in Seattle (ruts and potholes galore). Sure look good though!

Please elaborate on your GSM supercharger setup;

> Did you get Heads or Intake work done? :smoker:
> Have you run it with that set-up yet? :wave:
> Engine Temps still Ok with more boost and the 180 + fan mod.

The wheels are 3 pc forged and tthis is a very strong and light wheel, we weighed them at the shop 22x10" 34.5 lbs, 22x9" 32.4 lbs. ea.

The idea for the SRT 8's is simple form and function or looks and performance.

Dude said they're 10.5s. What's the backspacing on that? Can you fit a 285/35 tire there? 30 series or 25 series wouldn't last in Seattle.

I posted the question to the forum on whether or not to modify the wheels and stance of our SRT8s and surprisingly many intend to keep theirs stock. I personally will take delivery of my SRT8 either on 12/24 or 12/26 with every intention of installing 22s (and changing the grille) in the not too distant future.

I think what you've done here will make some of the SRT8 owners consider doing the same. Having said that, I was hoping you could give us feedback on the ride, etc. I'm sure it is noticeable but is it uncomfortable? No regrets? Also, how much did you drop the front and back? I am looking at 1/8in. in front and 5/8s at the back...265/35/22s all around.

Again, nice look...even nicer engine. Way to freakin' go.

Thanks for the response... sorry I was unable to post a reply sooner. Since the initial thread I have had a chance to put a few miles on this set-up and I am very pleased. Please keep in mind that all of these modifications were done at the same time, so it is somewhat difficult to provide accurate feedback for each one. However, I am an ex-racer and I am somewhat capable of evaluating these modifications.

KW Level-2 Coilovers - I would rate these a 10. Considering the increased stiffness of these springs, I was really amazed at how compliant the ride was. I made a few minor adjustments to the rebound dampening, but they were pretty close stock. I dropped the whole car about 1" and then made some minor adjustments to balance each side.

Brakes - Stock rotors cross-drilled, slotted and nickle-plated with stock backing plates and Carbotech Bobcat ceramic pad. I have had a chance to put some miles on this set-up and they are performing flawlessly. No squealing, no dust and no rotor damage. Performance is equal to stock after a rather long break-in period.

Tires & Wheels - The PS2's are awesome... I went from the RSA's to these so there was a big change. I would not reccomend this set-up for those of you who have to dodge potholes all day, but here in So. Fla. they are working good. Ride is affected, but not as much as I anticipated. That being said, I am still very cautious of very sharp bumps and deep holes.

GSM Stage-2 - I am still in need of final tuning, but the power is very good. I was very unhappy with the installer, so I will withhold my evaluation of this system until I have had an opertunity to properly check-out everything. I will post HP & 1/4 mile times soon.
