    Here's my 2011 Challenger R/T Classic the day I bought it in September 2013.

    I eventually lowered the car and changed the exhaust and made a few other mods.

    I picked up this set of 18" wheels for $300 which included shipping from California. They're my winter wheels.

    You have a tuner to adjust your wheel size for speedometer?

    Keep in mind any of you who like the classic wheels, they will not clear Brembo calipers. I sold my classic wheels and now have some later model hellcat style wheels, since my car is in the shop getting the "Brembo upgrade".

    No tuner. I just made sure the outer diameter of the 18" winter tires matched the diameter of the 245/45R20 tires the car came with. I use Tire Rack and Discount Tire to pull up the tire specs. I'm within a couple tenths of an inch, no issues. I checked the speedo against my Garmin GPS and speeds were within 1 mph from 30 to 70 mph.
