    Anyone know who I can contact to put my new Nitto 305/35/20 on my stock wheels? I live in MN.

    I purchased them from discount tire but since they are too wide they won't put them on. Still safe on the Hellcat though right?

    Widest safe size is 295 for the OEM 20x9.5 wheels. Just because you can put it on there, doesn't mean you should.

    Tire God 2.0 what would you recommend in place of these? I know a lot of people on the forums run these tires on the stock wheels and I haven't heard of any problems. Are they unsafe to run?

    I would say no one wants the liability for doing something they know as professionals is iunsafe. As already suggested, buy the correct size wheels or smaller tires and go back and ask again.

    Short answer is yes. It's unsafe. For a more detailed explanation, see my thread a few pages back titled something like, "tire and rim width range safety". People have nothing to gain from turning down business. But nobody wants to get sued over a misapplication they knew was wrong and did it anyway. Lawsuites like that end up costing 10-20 million dollars.

    295/35-20. Or get wider wheels. The 275/40-20 in the front and 315/35-20 rear is a perfect fitment. They are the exact same diameter. It's the same sizes that come on BMW X5 and X6. ;)

    Just got back from a week at the Bondurant School of high performance driving. They have approximately 10 Hellcats and a bunch more 392's. First thing they did when they got the cars is remove the Pzeros and installed GoodYear Eagle F1's 285/35zr20 these cars put through their paces daily. These tires grip like mad. They have had absolutely no problems with the bigger tire on the stock rim. If Bondurant is doing it, I feel comfortable doing it myself.

    Anyone know of wheels that look similar the stock wheels if I just wanted to change the back? I'd hate to have to change the look of all four if I'm just running the DR's in the summer.

    Yes. 275/35-20. 275/40-20. 285/35-20. 285/40-20. 295/35-20. I think that's about it.
