Tires!
 
Well it seems to be time for new rubber. I have the stock 17's for now, I do plan on getting the replica SRT 20's sooner or later, but thats looking more like later than sooner.. haha

My question is, does anyone know whats the widest tire I can throw on the stock 17's? Also, whats a better tire than the stockers we have now?

And I believe you can pull off 255/65's.

A 275/60/17 will fit, its about 11" wide but you might need to trim off the bottom of the bolt over the drivers tire.

I am 99% sure they will fit but have not tried them yet, i want to do more research and take measurements to see if they will fit.

255/65/17 will fit.

I am getting one of those sizes when i get my Nokian tires.

I would say....either a 265/60 or a 275/55....that should fit with no problems....
