Yesterday I got step two of three done, new wheels and tires installed. Thanks to Hosehead for confirming some measurements for me. These are 9.5x20 with +18 offset up front. Out back, 11x20 with +27 offset. They fit prefect!

Coming from 265/35/22 tires, these are much quieter and now I'm hearing noises I hadn't before.

So, step three will be to find a set of used SRT8 springs to install and drop it just that little bit it so needs.

Excellent!! You'll also find a superior ride ... especially in a C ... going back to a 20 from a 22.

If you go down, you may need to roll the rear fender lips to clear.
Mine (06 SRT8) do touch over stiff bumps ... just touch ... peel the outside edge of the tire ever so slightly.
I watch the road like a hawk and go easy when a higher bump comes on.
Will be getting them rolled in the spring.

Glad I could help out. My rides are now down for the season .... back to the C and a RAM.

Yes, there is considerable less road noise with the 20's over the 22's. ANd I am surprised at the lack of "little road bumps" that I no longer feel.
As for the fender roll, how would the inner fender liner attach to the lip of the fender if it's rolled up?

Is your rear cradle off a bit? The driver's side wheel looks like its sticking far out of the fender whereas the passenger seems flush, unless its just the angle of the photos.

I had the same issue and only noticed it once I installed a set of widened wheels. Lowering will help since the negative camber will pull the top of the tire inboard a bit.

It's just the way the shadows make it look that way. I had a vette where it stuck out like 1/4" more on one side and it drove me crazy, so I was looking for it and it's pretty even. Also, the car is parked on an uneven slant so it's not sitting flat. I'm going to take a better planned pic when I get a free moment (like on my mini vacation this weekend).

Man, I can't get over how much nicer and quieter the 20s are over the 22s. Also, since i bought the car, I've had a chime for the TPMS (sensors showing in the wrong location but all pressures showing). I sprung for the OEM ones with these wheels and it's been quiet with no faults. Cheers to the guys here that said, "OEM ones are the way to go".
