A guy on one of the FB groups posted up his Charger Redeye wearing what appears to be the Alumastar 18x6 wheels. Unfortunately he never responded to my comment asking what he did to get those to fit18" Welds won't fit.
18" Billet Specialties won't fit.
18" Forgestar won't fit.
I own all three of these and none will fit over the stock '21 caliper location.
Thanks for putting in the work fitting up wheels and seeing what works and doesn't.Tested my buddies weld 20x7 fronts with a 5 mm spacer again, but still rubbed the front of the caliper. Purchased 2 3mm spacers (6mm total), and it clears now.
One thing that you would need to decide on is if you want to just get longer studs, as getting normal lug nuts on will not give you enough rotations...
Because of that, I also purchased some ET lug nuts (Pro Comp 14x1.5 Open End Lug Nut Kit (Chrome) - 16148OET) to test, and these allowed me to get about 10-12 rotations....
I imagine it may be different depending on the track. As you said, longer studs may be the best option for peace of mind, especially considering the front studs are 10x easier to change than the rear. I just personally didn't want to deal with only changing the studs up front, which is how I found out about the ET lug nuts.Thanks for putting in the work fitting up wheels and seeing what works and doesn't.
I would say that even with the ET lug nuts and 10-12 turns, longer studs would probably be a must, even if just for piece of mind. With the open ends, passing tech might be a gamble if the inspector has heartache about the studs not at least being flush with the end of the lug nuts.. but 10+ turns is still a good amount of bite, so it is what it is.
So 17's will fit the rear. I was under the impression that the RE rear brakes were also larger and only 18's and up would fit. Definitely good news there.
My RE should be arriving sometime in August and I've been looking to pick up a set of track wheels for it. I'm happy that I stumbled across this thread.
