    You guys think these will fit? They would match my rears and i was thinking of a 235 55 18 tire or so. Should drop some weight and also less rolling resistance

    18x8 not going to work unless it has an extremely shallow drop center, which standard productions wheels don't. The 18s for our cars are custom built and spaced out in front of brakes and are narrower. CCW and Bogart have a 5" wide. Pretty much a race only wheel.

    Ok thanks, maybe an 18x9 then. I think I could still do the 235s on a 9 inch rim and already have the rears. I thought it would look nice plus save on some of the rotating mass and cut times a bit.

    Don't think you'll find anything in 18s in conventional wheels that clear brakes. I tried most everything I could bring home from Summit. CCW, Bogart are only ones I'm aware of,Weld is working on one.

    Did you try the weld rts s71 in 18x9 with 28mm offset part numer 71hb8090w61a? Hhp had them on their website as fitting the front of the hellcat?

    I spoke with Rich Bogart today. The front runner 18's are not yet in production, he's waiting on one more component (the center). Should be VERY soon!

    HHP sells a skinny front wheel specifically for the Hellcats and I have seen it in person. I think it looks great. OTHERWISE you are looking at a Weld RTS 20X8 with a 5MM spacer. You have to run a 20" with the welds and you have to run an 1/8" or 5-6 MM spacer.

    I ordered mine from HHP. Not sure if you seen a prototype 18" or a 17" that's had the brakes changed?

    They can't be 18's. There are no drag front tires made in 18".

    M&H makes an 18x28x4.5... I have 2 brand new ones sitting in my garage that just arrived last week. They are waiting on 18x5 Bogarts to come in.
