SRT8 wheel/tire question

hi guys,
if I'm using OEM SRT8 wheels, can I use the same size tire all around? say a 275/45/20? or do I have to use staggered tire set up. I know the rear wheel is wider and might stretch the tires but would it work?
thanks,

Re: SRT8 wheel/tire question

it might work, you would have to see if the tire would fit a 9 inch wide rim as well as a 10 inch wide. It might look a little funny. A tire calculator online will tel you this information. I personally wouldnt do it. I would go with the stock srt8 tire sizes.

Ditto..... If you check the mfg of the tire they usually have a spec sheet that accompanies the tire. On it, there will be information on what size rim the tire is suited for. That should be your guide to help you with your decision.

Re: SRT8 wheel/tire question

check out the nitto420s in the stock srt sizes....255-45 and 285-40 I shopped around and got a set for $700 with price matching in discount tire. Thye also can be rotated side to side...
