I am new to these boards as some of you already know and I wanted to know your opinion on what would look best on a silver 300 awd. I have looked around this site and have seen some peoples rides who also have a silver car but I am torn on the type of rims I should get. Also I am looking at 20' rims for my ride. thanks for the help

Welcome Magz to a very helpful and fun-loving board!!

Helpful: Your question is one that is almost impossible to answer because it is such a personal decision and there are so many different styles from classy, to sporty to flat out bling. There is a thread that was started where others will help you with photochops, so if you have pics of your car and some pics of wheels you know you like try posting there to get a sneak preview of whether or not you will like the end result. :)

Fun-loving: Instead of rims, why not splurge and go for the whole wheel... and the AWD is already so tall, I worry that 20 foot wheels might be a little over the top. You might consider 20" wheels however! ;)

Sorry Magz, couldn't resist... all in good fun! Good luck with your decision-making and be sure to post some pics of your car... before and after. :D

I dont understand what you mean by of the shelf rims for AWD are limited? Does that mean I cant buy any old 20" rim? And if so why is this? Could I get away with putting the 20" SRT rims on my car.

Offsets on the spindles, no?
Something about the 4matic - the rest of the guys know better than I.
Do you have AWD?
In any case, on a silver 300 - black wheels with chrome/aluminum rims look pretty good.

You also shouldn't lower your AWD so keep that in mind when getting your
wheels. The car sits really high stock, too high.
All the AWD will do is eat more gas because it's not any faster than the 2WD.
It comes in handy for traction and that's about it.

Good luck.

what I mean by "off the shelf" are wheels that are ready to buy and put on your car immediately. Those are different from a custom built wheels where you have to order them then they are built them just for your car in your choice of width and height and color, etc.

There are hardly any wheels available to fit an AWD model so for someone that really desires them they may have to opt for more expensive custom built wheels by some of the companys I listed above.

The wheels from the 300C with rear wheel drive. Sorry, they will not fit properly. Chrysler did not make them to be interchangeable.

AWD Questions

Just wondering what the deal is if I decide to go with a 22" rim for my AWD... Since it sits higher automatically does that grant the use of a little bit bigger tire..../??? say a 35 to 40 series...??? I live in North Idaho and the roads arent like all the beautifully maintained roads elsewhere in the US. ie; potholes, Large concrete lips on parking lot entrances. you know.

Please help me... cuz all that list of rim manufacturers did for me is allow me to look at the rims. (not the tech specs of them).. .so I still don't know what will fit my ride....

And what's the deal with the little bolt coming out under the wheel well... can you remove it and what is it connected to...

Thanx for putting up with my newbie status...

PS... TIS(Twenty Inches Strong) are some of the only rims I have found that will work.... but still having tire issues cuz I don't want it to look completely retarded.. but I want to be able to go over a bump without messing up my investment too... PLEASEEEE HELPPPPPPPP! :eek:

Linda,

Are you actually alluding to the fact that a rim is actually only part of the entire wheel assembly...say it isn't so? ;)

The tire sizes will be the same as the Rear Drivers. The tires sizes has nothing to do with the AWD being 1 inch higher. The RWD and AWD both come from the factory with the same tire sizes, which is 225/60/18 for the HEMI's. So the tires selected for 19 or 20 or 21 or 22 inch rims may be the same.

I little slow today are we? - All the wheel companies I listed are 'CUSTOM', repeat CUSTOM wheels builders. They don't make generic sizes or any one particular wheel sizes for any particular cars - they build wheels to fit any car or truck with any specification possible. You call them and tell them you want a 21x10.5 rim or whatever size you can dream of for your 1969 Plymouth Volare or your 1985 Yugo, etc. and they will build it. The wheels cost more but you get a custom wheel built to your specifications. Do you understand it now?!

Are you serious? Why would anyone want to remove a bolt holding the suspenion together? Remove the bolt - it allows you to watch your wheels pass you on the road. :confused:
