Nice! How do you like the ride in your car with the Mopar kit? I was curious about doing it myself.

As for rubbing, I have no idea, I'm sure someone with more information will pop in.

Just an input. All stock 17's to 18's. with Mopar stage 1 springs. No rub but then again it's not the stage 2. So it might be different.

I love the ride with the coilovers. Better handling and a much more aggressive stance!

Could somebody show pictures before (17") and after (18")?

Thanks
The look is an improvement, the performance affected by weight is insignificant. I didn't notice any change at all in efficiency or acceleration when I swapped mine. Although you need to keep in mind that I drive like a little old man.

And as requested here's a before and after of the '10.

245/55/18 BFG Radial T/A Spec You will not be disappointed in them for price or performance. It's what i run on my 3.5L Charger on the stock 18" rims it came with which were the same as the base model R/T rims.
