So I'm trying to follow all the specs posted, but still a bit lost.

What are my tire options at 20"?
I really like the look of Neils, kinda flat with wide tires, but I also like MOFSTEEL's latest set.

Can either or both of you let me know what tires and wheels you installed? Did they fit without spacers, and if not what am I telling the tire store I need? I'm not well versed on the whole spacers stuff.

And what happens with the spare? If I read correctly either here or another thread, nothing aside from OEM will fit in the well.
For your spare, as long as your overall diameter doesn't change, you're fine.

My wheels are Factory Reproduction SRT8 replicas in a 22x10 (45mm offset). My tires are Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico 305-35-22's.

Thx. Is this where you bought yours, if not are they similar?

And holy, those tires are expensive!

Oh wait, just re-read your post - your wheels are 22 not 20.

Yup, that's where I got the wheels.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Replaced rear OEM Nivomat shocks with Bilstein 4600's (24-225427) tonight. I did not replace the springs.
Additional OEM parts needed. (two of each)
68063781AE
68029592AC
68029590AF
5181844AA

Ground to fender measurement.
Before. 35"
After 34"

I also received my OEM SRT wheels back from Discount Tire.
All wheels were re-powdercoated in gloss black on their dime since one of their techs damaged them.

I only drove about a mile after the install so I don't have any reviews yet.
Pretty happy now that the rear only sits an inch higher than the front.
As long as you have the right tools the install is fairly simple.

More pics to come.

I bet if you swapped the "tow package" springs for standard Laredo springs the rear would come down another 1/2". When I swapped my rear springs to SRT springs there was at least 2 full coils difference.

Those Bilsteins sure do look pretty under there! 👍

If you mean chrome window trim it gives me an added 4-6mpg.
Just as good as a K&N CAI.

Chrome shiny? You sound like the same scholar who would think a K&N intake would give you 4-6mpg.

Sounds like you need a clue ...bro.

Really, I've had it for over a year, so when my dash reads 15-16mpg and then miraculously reads 19-21 consistently afterwards, street and hwy, it's a MIRACLE!!! WOW!!!

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Sounds like it because my 2014 Altitude has been consistent 20-21 since I hit 5k miles. Only time I dip below that is when the gas switches to winter blend.
