If you are asking this question you don't know enough about wheels/tires.

Re: Lowering springs question

You can actually stagger if the outside diameter is the same in an AWD vehicle...which the 1st Gen jeep SRT8 was...

No one said you can't, but why would you... There is no benefit at all in doing so except saving money on the front pair.

You can't rotate or use a spare in most cases when u do this

I was sure it was 255 front and 285 rare.

Edit/ I did read up on it now and it did say 295 on all 4, should I change to 295 on all 4?

Thanks for clearing that up, now, instead of doing sharp remarks, explain to me why if you're so good at this?!

Yes..go with 295/45/20 on 20x10"s

You'll get a nice aggressive look and a good fit

Cool, it won't be any rubbing in the front? I want to lower it also, that was 1 of the reasons I wanted smaller in the front.

Re: Lowering springs question

Nope no rubbing! Most of us on 22's run 305's with zero rubbing and we are lowered. You will be fine 👍🏻

I run 295/45/20 all the way around. I have oem srt wheels that are 20x10 with Et50. Plenty of room.

Re: Lowering springs question

Has anyone towed anything with the lowering kit? I was planning on putting a hitch on myself since it didn't come with one. Any rubbing when under weight? Also would I be able to run my stock tires and wheels on my 2013 Overland (had the dealer threw in new tires)?
