Talking Charger on 26"s w/ Spindles Fabricated

Hey everyone! new to the forum but wanted to see what you guys thought about the 26" wheels on a charger, i noticed it has been pretty controversial since not alot of guys are doing it and the wheels are pretty rodonkilous! Especially for such a small car lol with that being said i took my car to one my buddies that does alot custom fabrication here in Arizona and had him work his magic let him get the car to fit the wheels. We were using a 275/25/ that we set the spindle up to fit that size of tire on the 26". Overall everything went great and fit perfect! i ordered the wheels that i am going to have on the car and they should be here in a week or so so i will post some photos of the car on the 26"s but for now i have some photos of the work that was done to the spindles.

im not a fan. but to each his own right?

IMHO anything over 22 is too much on these things. but we all have different taste. im pretty sure that will be the majority vote here.

also "such a small car"??? really??

I think trucks should be lifted and cars should be lowered....but thats just my 2 cents.

I was putting it into perspective that 26"s are big for a car the charger is small compared to a Tahoe... and the wheels you would expect on a larger truck/Suv

Aren't Charger spindles cast? If they are, your spindles are going to crack. You can't weld cast without stressing the material severely.

If they are forged, then you will be okay as long as your buddy is a good (no comment from me on this) welder.
