    AFAIK, the Blacktop Package for 2017 included the 20" gloss black aluminum rims with Goodyear F1 tires. That's what mine came with.

    these cars come only with a 18" spare temp donut tire, not full size. you have the option of ordering with or with out. you can buy the wheel from your dealer but you will have to get the tire from a tire dealer, I had to do that with mine. all the mounting parts in the trunk I got from the dealer too. just one of those things. my wifes 2011 challenger SE Rally had the spare tire, again it was a 18" temp tire. it was listed on the sticker price tag.

    So you can go to a junk yard and see if you can find a wrecked challenger and see if it has a spare tire in it or order the rim and find a tire dealer who can get you a temp tire.

    I can actually order an 18" spare from chrysler, but they cancelled my order because they claim per my VIN that my car requires a full size spare. I don't understand why that would be. I don't want a full size spare eating up all my trunk space.

    kinda a funny as they dont come with full size spares, why would Chrysler cancel a parts order? was this through your dealer or online purchase. dealer had no problem getting me the parts I needed to complete my spare tire, all i had to get separately was the tire from a tire dealer.

    Online from FactoryChryslerParts.com
    They emailed me and said Chrysler specifies a full size spare only for my VIN, so they cancelled the order.

    Just order from your dealer then. Cause they don't come with full size spares.

    Found one on Craigslist from an 06 Chrysler 300 that was being parted out. $25. I'll call that a win.
