I remember when I first noticed the wheel well liners were the same on the six bangers and hellcats. I may have misspoke when saying ground up design LOL everything is a compromise, part of the reason these cars only come with 800 horse.

what offsets are you running ferel? That it probably some of the widest fittment I’ve seen (out back for sure). Tits

Lowering a Hellcat, IN MY OWN DARN OPINION, is a rice mod that rice fans do to proper cars because they're still infected by rice-itis due to prolonged exposure to infected imports and Mustangs.

Dude thank you for sharing. Ppl are always so uptight about offsets it’s refreshing to see transparency so other ppl can be ballers too.

what are your tire sizes? I’m always interested to see the MAX

I might try to replicate the width with lessRim and more tire cause it’s how I do. I wish i could put demon wheels on but alas the bigger rotors up front.

thank you thank you for stimulating though and building the forum!!!

Lowered my Hellcat by buying the Super Stock, 18” rims compared to the 20” View attachment 569911
Lol im literally doing this so. Just put on the front brakes just waiting for my tires to arrive any day. I assume the gap between the 20s vs the 18s would be different meaning the 18s will have a bigger gap then the 20s?

Mopar lowering springs. Here you go!





Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Maybe it's different on the Chargers; but the Mopar Springs lower the car 1" all around. The Eibach Pros lower the front 5/8" in the front and 7/8" in the rear. That's what I'm looking for cause I can literally put four fingers of my hand in between the top of the tire and the bottom of the Fender. About half an inch up front is perfect as I sometimes rub on a wheelstop on those very few occasions when I don't back it in... and the car too!

I normally don’t like lowered cars but the flares make it look like the tires are too small and don’t fill the wheel well. I think the WB need it more than any other car.
The widebody stock tire size is shorter (not much) than the stock narrow body...and the super stock is even shorter than that. May be what you're seeing
305/35 20 = 28.4"
275/40 20 = 28.7"
315/40 18 = 27.9"

What's the part number on the Mopar lowering springs everyone is talking about? Does it lower less than the Eibach? I have the Eibach now and they look great BUT my front rubs a little when turning. My front tires are 315/35/20 :)

looks great, a little rub never hurt anyone. Reminds uthat u went low enough. Mopar p/n is on page 1 I think
I always say, if you lower a vehicle and it doesnt rub just a tiny bit, either your not low enough or your tires are to small
