Your thoughts please ...

On another vehicle in my household -

Upgrading 18 inch wheels on a Dodge Charger R/T. It will be used as a daily driver. I have already decided on the wheels, but wanted to know you thoughts on which size. My choices are 275/40/20 vs 265/35/22. I want the biggest footprint possible. My concern is ride quality. Is there that much difference between a 40 series and 35 series? Again, this will be daily driven.

Thanks!!

I run 285 40 20s on my truck........I would stay at the 20" mark.....I have ridden in cars with 22s, and a 35 sidewall.... not a comfy ride at all........ you should be able to run 285s.........a buddy of mine is running 305 35 20s on the back of his charger......its about the same sidewall as my 285 40s.....

I personally think these cars look better on 20's. 22's are to big in my opinion.

I agree........but if they want 22s, its their car, so they can do what they want........I just gave the facts that I have collected, and prefer to keep the opinions out of it........reason being, opinions can change rather easily.....last year, I would have said to stick with 18s because 20s are to big and a bit ghetto...........now I have a set on my truck..........LOL

I would also stick with 20" wheels. I will never put anything lower than a 40 series on any of my vehicles.

You just need a wide enough tire to compensate........my buddy's charger srt8 rides beautiful on the 305 35s....its the same dia and sidewall as my 285 40s........

thats what im running. 305/30. still plenty of sidewall. people dont realize that the aspect ratio goes by the percentage of the width of the tire. 30 series is 30% of the width of a 305 tire. corvettes have a low aspect ratio. no one really complains about that though.
