[QUOTE="C"Bandit]I have a?

Do you lose any performance say 0-60 with the AWD?[/QUOTE]
NO u dont. I hate when people say these things are heavy and slower than rwd 300c. I have mine clocked at 5.7 secs with a video here and i can do that consistently any day. I have clocked once 5.42 secs when it was snowing outside. esp off. The car left the lane like there was no traction. BUT I WOULDNT NEVER EVER DO THAT AGAIN unless on a strip.

Once Again.... WHAT SERIES???

:D WHAT SERIES ARE YOUR TIRES?????

You haven't told me yet...,.. and no I can't tell by looking at the picture I don't have a magical de-blurring device when I zoom in on your pic...

(JUST GO READ THE NUMBERS ON YOUR TIRES)

It will tell you what series they are... 35 40 45.. something like that...

You should know... Especially if you are saying that you can answer peoples questions about the AWD C....

So... once again... go outside and look at your tires

it goes like this

P 235/65 R 17 103 H

P means passenger car

235 means tire width in millimeters

65 (this is where you are getting confused) this is the series,.... otherwise known as the aspect ratio(the ratio of the height of tire's cross section to it's width)

R this is the construction of the tire R=Radial B=Base

17 is the wheel diameter (you got 22's I think)

and last but not least the little 103H the 103 is the load index and the H is the speed symbol(your maximum reccomended speed)

SO... with all that said....

WHAT SERIES ARE YOUR TIRES.

Well Jeeez

Well Shucky Darn...... :eek:

You should've told me that you didn't have your ride and I would not have so incessantly insisted that you tell me what series your rubbah' is...

No blood no foul...

I would think it might have been a little better that the RWD just because of having better traction. Having 390ftlbs of torque helps :D

I have just joined the forum and I am picking up my 06 300C AWD next week.
I want to put 20s on,; either the TIS 03 or the Zinik 16Duet. I have been told very differant things about the offset and the online co's are all over the place. Can somone settle this issue once and forr all. WHAT IS THE OFFSET FOR THE C AWD?

10-15
15-24
34-42
or what?

Thanks

35 to 42

The Suggested offset for an AWD300C is 35-42 MM Don't let anyone tell you any different...

if you are going with 22's 35 series is the biggest tire you can safely go with

And the bolt pattern is 5x115 NOT 5x114.3 It is close enough that it will work but it is dangerous and not reccomended...

Hope this helps... :AR15firin

I am ready to buy a 300c and feel I need awd because i am in michigan and have a fairly steep driveway. Problem is I don"t like the rims that come with the awd. Dealership said if I ordered different rims it would void the warranty. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Wheels and warranty

My dealer also showed me a service bulliten that aftermarket wheels that are not part of the 5 star catalogue will void warranty for brakes, suspension and steering problems. The reason they stated was because buyers are putting on aftermarket wheels of every size that dont fit.
I spoke w/ the Chrysler rep for MC2ning. He said the exact fit and the only fit that will not void warranty is: 20x8.0 5/115 +42 offset.unless the dealer installs 20x8.5 5/115 + 42 instead. Only 1 Co. makes the aforementioned
20x8.0, MC2. The other issue is the weight. MC2 forged wheels weigh 23 lbs.
TIS and others like Zinik in the 20" size weigh 32 lbs+. Yhe heavier wheels can distort the suspension tunning and set up a harmonic vibration; what ver the hell that is. http://www.300cforums.com/forums/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=86296#

Dealerships are always going to want to worm out of things. What I will do if I have any brake, steering or suspension problems is put my stock wheels and tires on and drive into the dealership and say my [email protected]#t is broke fix it. Shouldn't have to do that I know. Especially since the dealerships around here are putting 20" wheels and tires and a grill on them and then marking up the sticker price 5K.
