Re: 15s or 16s on a daily driver

Depending on your roads it can be your prerogative.. But 16's should be good with a meaty tire:thumbup:

'04 Srt-4, stock turbo, act clutch, injen sri, maddog sts, dsp, torque mm's, bfmic, 3" exhaust with side exit, energy suspension bushing kit, rear koni adj. on eibach pro-kit, etc..

16x7 or 16x7.5, 225/50 tire. Great everyday setup. tons of choices, lower prices than other sizes, will ride and grip just fine.

After installing rebuilt and powder coated calipers.



I was running a 17x7 w/ 225/45 now these are 16x7 225/50 and ride a lot less bumpy.

16s and beefy tires rock, they look the best on the SRT IMO, but I have the ACR BBS wheels so... Keep in mind; the tire sidewall makes a big difference too (regardless of tire size).


Mods: Duster E85 Tune, AEM Wideband, AEM SRI, PTP 55mm TB, Magnecore Wires, Catch Can, Check Valve, 3" Catless DP, Hawk HPS pads, NGK Iridium plugs, Mopar STS, Booger Bushings, Prothane MM Inserts, BC Coilovers, Prothane LCA bushings, DC Sports Strut Braces (F & R), Hankook RS3s & Rocking the ACR/BBS wheels again!!.

I like the no nonsense look of 15s , they look all business , no flash .
15x7 rota slips , 225/60/15 BFG g-force sports .

I went with 15s for better tire prices , selection , and best sidewall . Now I just need a another pair of rotas for some drag tires .

Ha I have those same wheels on my car right now for my snows. They were definitely the best bang for the buck on tire rack for the 15" options. Get a lot of people thinking they're evo 8 wheels for some reason lol
