Re: School me on SRT8 Replicas

i hated my 20x10 rear wheels, i dont even think i had them on for a full year because of my dislike of them. they rode horrible on the highway!! any highway that was well travel by trucks and has ruts in the road from them will be horrible to drive on. the wheels are too wide and dont ride well in truck ruts on the highway. lots of swaying back and forth and made it constantly feel like it was out of alignment. yes it looks better, but i hated the ride.

Re: School me on SRT8 Replicas

Hey guys, I'm a newbie and looking to purchase some 20" or 22" factory repros soonly but i have a few questions...

1. I have 2008 silver GC limited on stock suspension - anyone have opinions on 20" vs 22" wheels? i feel like 20" may look small with stock GC suspension...or is that just me?

2. I plan on towing a 20 foot ski boat - are there any tire limitations that i should be thinking about when choosing tires?

Thanks for any advice/help! i've fount its easy to get lost in all of these threads and posts

Re: School me on SRT8 Replicas

Just ordered the wheels.

Guys I appreciate all the responses and definitely helped make my decision a little clearer


I'll be throwing up some before & after's as soon as they are put on.

Went with: 20x9 Gloss Black with 275/45R20 NEXEN Roadian HP Tires.

Re: School me on SRT8 Replicas

Will my truck need to "re-learn" the new tpms sensors with the wheels?

Re: School me on SRT8 Replicas

Well i have a small dilemma. They send me the wheels with the wrong tires.

275/40R20 instead of a 45 sidewall. I'll see how they look on the truck but to me without it being lowered yet they look a little out of place. If they look terrible I might have to return them and wait for the correct tires.

Here they are sitting next to the truck
