I've just purchased a 2006 300 Limited Chrysler with the luxury package and it’s an outstanding vehicle. I’d like to go wider on the tire size but I know where to start. Right now my tire size is 215/65/17 but I would like to possibly go bigger and or wider with a set Goodyear Eagle F1 series 18.19 or 20 inch. I've already know my size limitation is 22 inches and that I will have to get a bigger rim to meet the tire specs, however I'm not sure if it will change the flow of the ride or cause complexities with the suspension. At the end of the day, I would like the look of the SRT-8 300 without disturbing the correspondence of the vehicle. Dont really want 22's just something a little bigger than 17's or wider ya dig?

The Chrysler's 300 SRT-8 has 20 inch wheel base with forged aluminum rims with Eagle F1 tires. Would these rims fit my 300 limited if I purchased the same rim and tire combo? Could I possibly get a 17 or 18 inch tire and rim combo with the Eagle F1 to fit the 300 limited? Do they even make this tire for the limited?

Any assistance and or recommendations would be extremely appreciated.

I think DJ has the SRT rims on his Touring which is basically the same as the Limited.

Like NDENT said, yes, I most certainly do and here's all the info you'll ever need (including tire options and part numbers):

This Goodyear link will show you all of the 'Eagle F1 Supercar' tires sizes which are currently available:

Also, take a look at my photo gallery if you want to see these on something other than an actual 'SRT-8'. If you still have some questions, just PM me. ;)

tight... more more more

This really helps! I spoke with my neighbor earlier and he told me about several forums related to a specific vehicle. This is a God-sent considering I'm green to the 300 buzz. The information you can get from this is priceless.

and I guess I should just .. aww heck

But I want a bigger rim (18-20 max) but I don’t want the weight. Any suggestions or brands?

How strong is the front suspension in a 300 limited?

By chance would you have the link for installing a T-rex triple chrome billet?

And where to get those SRT-8's new but with aftermarket price.

Go with forged aluminum wheels...lighter and stronger. The 'SRT-8' wheel is forged aluminum, but there are also many others out there as well; however, you'll quickly discover that none come cheaply.

No stronger than the front suspension of my car...and I've not experienced any problems running 18's or the 20's.

There are several excellent 'grill install' threads located within the 'Exterior Visual Modifications' section...they're pretty easy to spot. ;)

You can check eBay, but I really doubt that too many will 'pop-up', as the 'SRT-8' models appear to be hard to get...even for those who have them on order. :(
