Powdercoated Graphite Grey OEM SRT8 Staggered Setup 275/315 runflats
 
So here are some teaser pics, i've gotten a bunch of people that wanted to see this setup mounted. Here are the specs, OEM SRT8 20x9 and 20x10 wheels powdercoated Graphite Grey w/red paint fill on the SRT logo. Tires: 275/40/20 front and 315/35/20 Bridgestone Dueler HP Sport Runflats (OEM BMW X5 M and X6 M). Suspension is stock WK springs with WK Bilsteins all around, BWoody Endlinks F&R, and rear SRT8 Sway bar. I think the car looks lower than it really is with the OEM mopar body kit. These bridgestones run super wide and did rub on the sway bar bolt. I ended up taking an angle grinder and grinding the bolt heads down as far as i could and still be able to get a wrench on it. I took it out for a quick drive and there was no rubbing, i think under EXTREME cornering it will still rub. Just a note getting runflats mounted, they were a huge pain to get the bead on the 315's to set. the shop did everything they could and ended up sending them to a tractor trailer shop to get the bead set, not sure what they did but all the shop could say that it was very very difficult and they ended up paying the tractor trailer shop 50 bucks a wheel, fortunately the tire shop quoted me 25 a tire and they held true to there word. So untill i get the car washed tomorrow and change the oil here are some teasers. Does anyone know if i can ditch the spare without having the TPMS light come on, since i now have runflats and the overall diameter is different than the oem wheels, i have no use for a spare.

315 vs 275 vs 255

no these are not the competition grey wheels from factory reproductions, these are Genuine OEM SRT8 Wheels powdercoated, the color from the powdercoat color chart is called graphite grey, i believe these are a touch darker than the FR replicas.

i woudlnt ditch the spare, what if you hit something hard enough to warp a rim or obliterate the tire, runflat wont help that. id be safe and keep it JIC.
