 On the front of my Challenger I have 15x7's Centerlines with 3-5/16" bs on 225/60/15's that is the limit for this offset. My car is as low as I can put it without hitting the fender brace.
 I tried some 235/60/15's and they hit the low front fender when trying to turn.
 Why Centerline doesn't make some better offsets for mopars I don't know  :dunno:

That's the information that I needed. Did any of you guys need to use any spacers with your Centerlines?
Thanks for the info.

have you looked at the Centerline AutoDragIII wheels? They have 15x8" with 4 1/2" backspace. I should be receiving mine next week after a long wait for a second delivery. The first lot got damaged in transit :swear: and they are made to order :pullinghair:

Anyway I took some photos before they were sent back to see what they would be like for spacing, 275/60/15 BFG waiting to go on :bigsmile:

I keep them tight because I have the feel for it and as it looks bad Unfournately, I don't have any access to any air tools nearby and I don't make a ton of money at this point just yet. Call me a redneck mechanic but, sometimes you have to use what you have and I don't have a lot of the shops around here that I can trust to do the work being around a military base.
As for the front end I thought the same thing and that problem will be getting fixed. I bought the car like that. I'm young and I'm still learning on these cars.

Yea, but only for the back to get the 295/50/15's to fit,  all of my info is on page one of this post.

have you looked at the Centerline AutoDragIII wheels? They have 15x8" with 4 1/2" backspace.

 Did these just come out? 
 73Cuda73 go for these instead, much better backspace options!
Looks like I need to start saving  ;)

I was told that the AutoDragIII models were for RWD vehicles only. That is the perfect size with a perfect Back Space.

Would you recommned the 15x7 with the 4" backspacing for the fronts? I noticed the AutoDrag III have that setup with the 5 x 4 1/2 bolt pattern.
It looks like the AutoDrag III 15x8 with 4 1/2 back space would be perfect for the rear.

for 17's

I'm running weld EVO's 17x8 front and 17x9.5 rear on my car with 245/45R17's front and 305/45R17's rear. The front wheels are 5.7" backspace and  the rear is 5.9", Super Stock springs with 1" offset hangers, 3" (yikes!) lowering blocks, longer studs and 3/4" inch wheel spacers (rear only). The rear outer wheel well lips were cut (would be better to roll them). Would have liked to have a different offset, but choices were limited when I bought the wheels. I have a set of ET Streets for the track, 28x11.5 on 15x8 centerlines with 4.5" back spacing, no spacers. Last pic is a 275/40/17 on another 17x9 with 5.9" offset, I think it looks small but that is just me.
