Hi,

thanks to all for the help , yes back brakes are vented... so 18inches is the smallest i can use.
Is there any limitation with regards to the tyre pressure monitor? or will it work with any rim?

I'd stick with Mopar sensors, and you should be OK with 18s as thats a factory size.

I was just going to say, getting some factory 18" take offs might be a cheap entry portal if you like the looks.
