    I have a couple of the stock Alcoa wheels from my old 2010 SRT8 with some drag radials on them for the track. Will these fit the back of my Hellcat? FB_IMG_1443015797539.jpg FB_IMG_1456075741929.jpg FB_IMG_1443015797539.jpg FB_IMG_1456075741929.jpg

    I would check the specification on the Nitto, but from anything i have ran with over 285 mm width tire requires a 10" width rim, the stock HC rim is only 9.5"

    Just checked Nitto's web site there minimum rim width for their 305 as you asked is 10" so no they should not be used with the stock HC wheels.

    So many forum members have put Nitto and MT 305 on stock rim without any issue

    i asked a friend about this because i understand your concern (he used to run a big tire dealer around here in the local area) it is a 1/4 inch on each side.. he said it is fine.. if it were an inch it would be too much but half an inch = 1/4 inch on each side of the rim is ok. he also explained that these manufacturers under rate the depth or width.. or something to that effect.. cannot quote verbatim maybe he will chime in on this thread not sure.. i have not personally had any problems on the road or the track with these tires on the stock rim. maybe some other members can give some more feedback. hope this helps. i do understand your concern though. i felt the same..
