    While changing the drive shaft we had the chance to fit a 17" x 10 wheel on the charger, we decided to change the sway bar end links to a shorter set as the factory was too close when the wheel has weight on it, some thing to be aware of..

    No fitment issues here with a 17" x 9" Weld S77. The swaybar had a little over .5" of clearance. The car was driver to and from the dragstrip with no issue.

    It's the wider ( 10"-11") wheels that the bottom of the end link will touch

    Yup, and as you said, shortening up the link will tuck it into the barrel of the wheel. I'm half tempted to get an 11" wide set and go for a 325 17 Racemaster.

    My 18x10 wheels should be here Mon to test fit. They have a 20mm offset hoping they clear SB, If not is there a Part # of a swaybar link that is 1" shorter? Or did you use an adjustable one, they are pretty pricey. I'm hoping to find something in the Moog catalog that is OEM but shorter, or just shorten the one on there?

    Just wondering if you have tested the wheels on the car yet?

    Just got 18x10 20mm offset Bravado wheels from Summit. Fit fine, cleared sway bar. 305 45 18 MTs on order.

    Note: when suspension is at full down (tire hanging with no load) the sway bar is very close to rim but not touching. In normal ride height there is over an inch clearance. I noticed in the first post the comment about the wheel weight would hit bar and it will with this wheel in full down but plenty of room in normal driving positions. I plan on tape weights anyway.

    where did you get the wheels from? I want to get a second set of wheels to mount some drag slicks on. I would prefer 18" as well for the taller sidewall

    Summit sells them, come in 20x11,18x10 and 20x9.5 for the front. Only problem is 18x10 black is on BO. I had to get silver and paint them. Under $200 ea.
