    Long story short they are trying to put the OEM stock rim size from the base model on my Hellcat until they fix my rims. They are leaving the OEM stock Hellcat rim/wheel on the front and repairing the 2 rears. Will this work?!?!

    No 17" rim will fit over stock front brakes and will interfer with sway bar link in rear.

    Depending how wide they can hit sway bar link in back. 9" wide should work. If tire dia matches should be OK as a temp spare.

    Actually 17" rim fits fine if you raise the car from the lower control arm.

    I'm suppose to have these for the next 5 days on the rears.

    Tire size is 215/65/17 that is currently on it. If I will end up getting damage from these I will give them a call for someone else.

    Should be fine for a few days. 215 is .75" shorter and could set an ABS light but doubt it. Not too worry.

    I would assume that this fitment would be very unsafe at highway speeds handling and stability wise. I would just not drive it or very little.

    Unsafe at highway speeds...really? the same wheel and tire package, is on the base or R/T cars. If it clears the brake package without issue, its perfectly safe on his car at highway speeds.

    Not when you have a 275/40-20 on the front. Not a good idea. But it might be your only option till you get the problem resolved. Mixing sizes like that will make the car unpredictable. When you replace two tires you want the new on the rear for the same reason. To prevent hydroplane/fishtail. Ever seen a drag car with skinnies on the back? Me neither haha

    So it means we shouldn't run 275 on the front and 305 in the back?

    No, wider on the rear is good. His problem is he is running stock on fron and tiny on rear.
