Rims and tire question

2808 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Shots
I just bought a set of new rims for my charger and I have a few questions hopefully you guys can answer for me. I probably should have asked these before buying them but too late now. Ok I have a 2010 charger sxt rally edition. Factory tires are 225/60/18, I bought a set of American Muscle 18" rims that are 10" in the back as 9" in the front with a decent offset, don't know the exact. They have Sumitomo 285/35/18 on the rear and 275/35/18 on the front, with a max load at 1521 and 1604 on the tires. I know these will throw my speedo off, I've planned for that I want to know if the tires can handle the weight of the car and if I'm going to have any rubbing or brake problems? I did put the front rim on the car and it seemed to roll and turn fine but had very little space between the inner rim and the caliper. Please let me know what you know. Also what would be the smallest width tire I could put on these re if I have to buy new tires?

Thanks for the help guys. I'm gonna put them on this week after my new tpms sensors come in. I'm gonna give them a shot, I'll post some pics after I get them in there. They are really sweet tires so I really am hoping they will work out.
Here are what they look like pre installation.

In regards to tire width for the rim, do you guys think the stock 225/60/ would stretch onto the 10" rim, there is quite a bit of sidewall to stretch out but I know that a 225 is only 8.8 inches but i don't know how it works when you stretch if it would make it.
