    What after market rims are available that match the factory black Hellcat rims as much as possible and what is the widest rim/tire combo that will fit the rear? I just picked up my Hellcat Challenger a couple of weeks ago and would like to find a set of look alike rims for the rear to mount drag radials for next spring. What drag radials do you guys suggest, the Nitto 315/35-20 or the Mickey 305/35 -20 or are there better sizes or brands out there? Thanks in advance.

    I have Bravado Tribute 20x11 rims with Nitto 315/35-20 on the back in this picture. Thay are a bit wider than the fender, but I don't mind.

    Looks good! I bet they hook pretty good. Are you still running your stock drive shaft? A8 or M6?
    Thanks.

    What's the offset and weight on the Bravado Tribute wheels?

    I have an A8 and still have the stock drive shaft, so I was taking it easy on the launch. I live in Colorado so no more drag racing until next spring. Drive shaft is first on the list next spring. The rims have a +21 mm offset and I think they weigh 34 pounds.

    Did you have to modify the plastic inner wheel well liner any? I live in Western Nebraska so I hear you on no racing until spring. Gives me some time to figure out what rims and tires to go with.

    I am most likely going to do the same at some point. I am leaning towards the nittos. I did see a set of Weld rims 18" which looked good. That size allowed a 335 on the rear. Let me know what you end up with.

    I did not need to modify anything. Many of us are running the same setup with great results.
