Hey I was looking to put SRT wheels on my SXT. But I hear there is a rubbing issue when the car is put in reverse. Any info about this? A little help would be good. I can't why there would be a problem...:confused:

camber, caster, offset issues maybe...

maybe something loose in the suspension area...

just some guesses..

Offset is different, I believe its for the big a** Brembos on the SRTs. All you need to do is add a 3-5mm spacer on the fronts. I put spacers all the way around but I don't think its necessary. Some here have ground the control arm a bit to allow for clearance instead of using the spacers.

If you are considering getting SRT wheels, please, please get a replica set or at least make sure they don't have the SRT emblem on them! We don't need another SRT-6 episode LOL!

If you turn your wheel ALL the way and reverse hard you get a tiny bit of rubbing but i never have a problem with it...

if you are not going to get the oem srt rims then you don't have to worry about rubbing. Imo no replicas will ever come close to looking as good as the oem rims.

I was gonna get SRT rims before I realized how cheap I was. Had I gotten them, and had they had the SRT logo on them, I would have rocked the heck out of them. IT'S RIMS!! Sorry, I'm afraid I don't agree that it's like upbadging your car.

I'm afraid that I agree that I don't agree. The OEM SRT rims are still some of the best looking rims I have seen to date (opinion, of course).

no need for spacers dude. I have had my replicas for about 5 months now. "Minor" rubbing when the wheel is fully turned on reverse, but that only happens about 1% of the time during the week, and if that... Nothing to give you a headache about.

Spacers are not safe; they put too much pressure on the lugs, making them work 50% more than they should.

we are talking about spacers on oem not replicas. the oem wheels will rub ,although slightly but it will rub and depending on the tires it will rub even more. As for spacers being unsafe that is correct when we are talking about cheaply made spacers but the ones from bones are high quality, I get no vibration at high speeds, no alignment issues,lug issues etc and im close to putting 10k mile on mine. the spacers are also necessary if you plan on getting wider tires. if one can deal with the slight rubbing then you don't need the spacers

They're rims, its not like your putting a SRT badge on your trunk and HEMI badges on the sides. IMO the polish on the OEM is beautiful.
