AWD Wheels

I own an '05 AWD Silver C and I have a question about wheels. I'm not a big fan of the stock AWD wheels but I like the stock 18's on the RWD (see attached picture).

Does anyone know if these will work on an AWD and if not, why. I've read that the selection of aftermarket wheels is limited for the AWD but I can't find any info on the reason.

What's different about the AWD wheels?

Thanks for the info

300cp,

Still trying to figure out how you have the same car I ordered in March, and isn't supposed to go into production until September? :confused:

I'm still trying to find a nice profile of a silver AWD so I can see the wheel gap they talk about here on this forum. You have one?

I don't have a direct profile shot but here are a couple pics of my Silver C from a couple slight angles.

Thanks Silver_C_AWD,

That's the best picture I've seen so far. However, It's hard to tell where the tire ends and the gap begins. From your pics, it doesn't look unusual or abnormal though.

AWD Wheel gap

:wave: Hey guys, with respect to the stock "C" wheels - no, they won't fit properly on the C-AWD model. Aftermarket wheel options do exist, but are still limited in comparison (small market). Here's a thumbnail of the stock wheel gap.

Moss,

Do you know why they won't fit properly? I've read several times that they don't but nobody has given an explanation.

Thanks

AWD Wheels

It has to do with the wheel offset and required clearances. Look at the relative position of the wheel hub and the outer wheel itself on the stock AWD C. Compare this picture/measurement with other wheels and you'll find a variety of differences. Center hub measurements and offset vary according to manufacturer, use, etc. Improper offset can result in rubbing, tires protruding outside wheelwell, impingement, etc. Wyckoff Chrysler (sponsor) is one vendor offering a number of wheels suitable for AWD C.

Much more information available in the wheel/tire forum...depending upon how technical you want to get.

Does any manufacturer make plain stamped steel 18 inch rims for the 300C AWD so I can install ice tires for winter. I could care less about the "look"

AWD to Trade or Not

I live in Duluth, where we get nasty winters and have huge hills, my RWD just doesnt cut it, what type of weather have you had your awd drive in? I am wondering if its worth me spending $8000-$10000 for trade in and upgrade??????

I have had a 300C AWD on order since April 30 and the dealer still tells me it is not scheduled for production at the plant yet. Can anyone tell me what the deal is with the stopped production on the AWD's and when they are starting back up?

It would be most appreciated!

I had an AWD on order in April and was really perturbed with respect to the late start of production date - that being September. That I had to find out from blogs and dealing with DC directly. The dealership didn't have any knowledge what was going on. I had to inform them. Pitiful - is all I can say.

I received a number of excuses why the 2006's had started production and then stopped, but the most plausible is that the 300C AWD version has water from the A/C system leaking into the transfer case and/or the transmission. DC is looking for either different parts or a quick fix solution. Expect a recall on this. A simple fluid change and adding some kind of plug is all that is needed, but DC better act before we get the brrrrrs coming soon. A tranny replacement is about $5200 CDN.

You'd be better to wait for a fix than rush into a buy. Afterall, September is but 3 weeks away. Personally, I cancelled my AWD order and twisted my own arm to purchase an SRT-8 when the opportunity arose. Got it for $500 under MSRP. Woo Hoo!!

Dante!

Hey, you beat me to it! I also called someone I knew at DCX and they told me that the AWD C has a problem with the transmission working with the Hemi engine, but he didn't elaborate.

I was told that production will begin on Sept. 15th but there is a 2000 car backorder and they only build 100 per day.

I'm still hanging in there with my AWD order because winter is coming in Michigan soon - hopefully I'll have my car before that!
