What's up. I think that when/if I get an SRT-4, one of the first 1G+ mods I'll give it are some new rollers. I'm curious if anyone else has swapped to bigger rims & tires and their reactions compared to stock. What's the ideal size tires anyone's found? What's the ideal style/brand of tires for street use [for now]? I'm thinking of some Axis NE-O 17x7's with some sticky rubber. Will 7 inches be enough to harness the power? Curious.
Thanks for your help.

I'm very interested in this as well. It seems that the 45mm offset might cause some limited wheel selections & or fitment issues?

I'd like to know what's the "fattest meats" (contact patch) one could effectively get in the wheel wells. I'm guessing a 225x45 tire on a 17x7in rim or a 235x45 on an 18x8 rim will be pushing it? Anyone know for sure?
Anyone running drag radials for daily driver use? Opinions/ reviews/ comments?

I think that a 225 would fit on an 8 inch rim (with 35mm offset), but i don't think we'll know till someone actually tries it. :idea:

FYI- I called Centerline & they have their Lightweight RPM rims in a 42mm offset which they claim will fit.

I also called Volk Racing & they have some TE-37's with a 45mm offset. They didn't have them in the LE-37's as well as a few other styles. Appearently that's a bit of an unusual offset & not as widely produced.
