Hey guys im new today to this site, its great might i add. Ive seen many people with there rim problems and ive looked through the forums and couldnt really find my answer, my question is i just purchased my 2006 300C AWD and looking into 22" wheels, im interested in putting on the Viper look-a-like wheels that this company is selling on ebay. He claims they work with AWD models. the Guy claims he made these wheels a +25 offset. He said that they stick out approximately 1.5 inchs than the stock tire but they dont stick out of the fenders, he claims that a 9" wheel with the correct offset sticks out 1" as it is so its only a .5" difference. more of an aggresive look. Has anyone seen or heard some truth to this? he has a whole ebay motors page devoted to AWD wheels all of which +25 offset. thanks guys.:pat:

There is no way +25 will work on an AWD. You are gonna need a very high offset wheel to work probably +35 or higher. Mine are +35 on my AWD.

Ok thats what i thought, by the way i love those wheels what are they, what size tires and where can i get them!!!:fing02:

i have 22's and an awd 300 but to be honest the only way i want to drop the car is if i had air bags cause i have my friends that have 300c's non awd sitting at stock height and they bottom out so much and they way i am it would piss me off so much knownig there were scraps under my car

Mass300c, so did you go with the +25 offset on your AWD? This reply is way late but I'm interested how they look if you put them on.

Hey burban, question for you. Don't mean to hijack but I'm looking at a set of 20" rims for my AWD, with a +30 offset but only an 8 1/2" wide rim. I would guess it should sit about the same as yours, no? Yours are 5mm more offset but a 9" rim?

They are the Elure 002 (made by Eclipse wheels, check out their website) and the tires I am running are 265/35/22.

I have a AWD 300C 2005. My offset is also between + 35 to +40 range. I contacted RT Tire at Free Shipping on American Racing Wheels, Falken Tires, General Tires and Toyo Tires | RTTIRE.com and asked about the elure 002 and in 20" AND 22".
We have them in stock in either 20x8.5 or 22x8.5. The 20x8.5 set is $899.00

and the 22x8.5 set is $1,199.00.

265/35 R 22 is the 22" tire size you would need and
255/45 R 20 is the 20" tire size.
My question is; do you have 22x8.5 or 22x9.5 on yours?
The reason I might get 20" instead of 22" is because our Mayor in Edmonton doesn't believe in nice roads and our streets are rough. If I get the 22", I might have to install airbags on my suspension otherwise I'll have to ride the brakes.

Hey Pikabiker, I have an 05 AWD, c and I bought a set of Boss 331 rims, in 20 X 8.5 and a set of Falken 255/45/20 tires with a +30 offset. Here's a couple of pics. The roads are no better around here plus I go to Edmonton alot so I went with 20's. I like the look better than 22's anyway. I don't like cars that look like they are riding on the rims, lol.

Like the color. Is it the Magnesium Pearl? The wheels you got are similiar as the Elure 002. Those Falken tire; what speed rating are they?
Found this chart.
M 81 mph 130 km/h
N 87 mph 140 km/h
P 93 mph 150 km/h
Q 99 mph 160 km/h
R 106 mph 170 km/h
S 112 mph 180 km/h
T 118 mph 190 km/h
U 124 mph 200 km/h
H 130 mph 210 km/h
V 149 mph 240 km/h
W 168 mph 270 km/h
Y 186 mph 300 km/h

I was thinking about Pirelli or Lexani.
By the way, do you know why it's 8.5 for a 20" and 9 or 9.5 for a 22". Is 8.5/9.5 the width of the rim? If so, why narrower when small and why can it stay the same small or big.

I don't know why most 20's come in the 8.5" width. The color of my car is called Aqua, The Falken 452 tire on it are 105Y rated....................I think that's it. It's on the tires right after the size so I think that's the rating?:cool:

105Y are the load and speed ratings put together, where 105 corresponds to a certain number of pounds that each tire can continuously support, and the Y is the speed rating (186mph in this case)

SOX - Trying to locate the Tettsutt's in 22inch for my 2006 Chrysler 300C AWD. The silver vehicle you have listed looks amazing with those rims. I line in the US and am having some trouble finding those wheels. Can you let me know if you specifically orderd these for an AWD, where you bought from? Much appreciated
