I have a 2011 Limited with the standard 18" wheels. I'm looking at making my Limited a little more "SRT" like. I'd like to get 20x9 SRT replicas based on the 2009 design.
I'm confused about the different dimensions between the SRT and non-SRT wheels. As I understand it, an SRT wheel should work on a non-SRT but not the other way. Is that correct? I've seen offsets of ~35, ~45, and ~50. Which will or will not work on my Limited and what's the visual difference between them?
Is there a recommended tire size for the 20x9? The SRT seems to come with 295/45/20. Is that doable on my GC, or do I need something a little smaller like 285 or 275.
I plan to lower my GC using the Eibach lowering springs (1" front/1.8" rear). Does that change the wheel/tire dimensions supported at all?
My GC is my daily driver and never leaves the street (no trails, etc). I recently had the Corsa cat-back exhaust installed (world of difference!) and the Diablo 93 Octane tune. Wheels, tires and lowering springs are the next on my list.
I would appreciate any feedback you guys have.
