Staggered Winter Tire set up for SRT8's

for everyone running the staggered winter set ups....

whats your tire and size your running?


as its well documented that the official size on our trucks is quite scarce and etc for winter set ups. ive read that i shouldnt go crazy about going too much over and under the stock tires size perimeters for both the front and the rear...

if thats the case, by how much can i over/under shoot the tire size?- is basically my question here.


cheers-

Most of the winter setups on repros I've seen around are 255/45-r20 for fronts and 275/40-r20 for rears. if you get a lot of snow though I wouldn't go with a staggered setup since they won't really cut fresh power or slush without a lil bit of a fight. Narrow widths are better IMHO.

Re: Staggered Winter Tire set up for SRT8's

http://www.carbibles.com/tyre_bible.html

I use the car bibles routinely, love the site and the guy who runs it is knowledgable, def the way to go. I had same issue with sizes, but just plug in sizes for tire you want and your good. (may have to scroll down a bit, its under the tire/wheel dimension tab)

Dont go beyond say +/- 1% on diameter/circumference or you;ll have awd issues and also speedo/odo will be off a bit which is obviously no good haha. Cant wait to see setup though, post up when you can!
