    I've been looking at wheel options for my 2016 R/T as I want to put 275s on the rear. The Scat Pack wheels are still expensive when I see others selling them, so I was thinking of SRT8 Alcoa wheels that I see for $500 to 600 in places.

    From my research I'll need 5mm wheel spacers and can use my existing TPMS. Am I missing anything?

    Spacers?
    You mean adaptors.

    SRT8 is 5 x 115mm
    RT and all OLD MOPAR are 5 x 4 1/2" (114.3mm)

    I saw some goofy offset lugs, kind of like what Cragar ss did years ago with their washers.

    But I would not trust them at cursing speed.

    Just my $ 0.02

    Oh really? Wasn't aware of the different lug spacing. I'll go back to researching then.

    Thanks

    Yea, .7mm may not sound like much, but it is.

    BTW, Yes, the SRT8 Alcoa wheels look and run great. I actually found a second set for $375 for my Snow Tires.
    And I have had 295/40/20's on them with no problems, but 285/40's have less of a bulge.
    My wife want me to go to the NEW, Black Helcat wheels, and I may need to for the 315 slicks.
    But they are just not as classy.

    Nice! There are some aftermarket 115 spacing SRT-like wheels, but they don't look as nice to me

    Looks like I was wrong.
    So, what uses the 114.3 spacing?

    mustang rims are the closest that comes to the same as ours. thats why you can run cobra reps rims with drag radials. thats what I ran on mine when I took mine to the track. without spacers.

    A lot of the after market wheel manufacturers sell the 114.3 as 115's. I had to get TSW to re-do my order as they tried to ship me 114.3, which I refused to accept.
