Default The Wheels Are On!

FINALLY bit the bullet and ordered up some Factory Reproductions 22x9 running on Nittos. I LOVE the look and now am immediately thinking it needs to be lower!

Question - I'm running 275/40/22's which are relatively close to the stock 20" total diameter when running 265/50/20's. If I get a flat and put my spare tire on, will it risk ruining the AWD differential?

Thanks in advance for your feedback and insights!

P.S. sorry about the links. I'm not 100% sure how to imbed the photo in the post.

New size is 30.976"
Old size 30.82" I dont think it will matter at all for short term use since they aren't locked axles anyway

Those look very nice. I also like the fender stripes. Never seen them with the hemi above them.

Looks awesome man, very nice. Great idea with the stripes too, it's different but still looks like it belongs on the vehicle. Aggressive, yet tasteful...big fan!

Looks good! So glad you posted those pics. I'm trying to decide between 3 different sets of wheels right now and one of the directions I was considering going is exactly what you did. Finally can see what it would look like.

I'm having a hard time deciding on wheel color and style. I've always liked chrome or silver wheels on silver vehicles but that black just looks mean... I like it

These wheels r most likely what I'll end up getting too. Non of the other wheels I have liked r avail or they can't tell me when they may be avail. I was thinking of going with 275/45/22 wheels for a little fatter look and better ride quality. My factory speedo is off 1 mph now compared to my GPS radar so no worries about that anyways LOL. I would def be in the matte black but only think they have gloss black correct???? Looks sick bro and you getting any poke with the 50+ OFFSET? I like a little poke or bare min out to the fender edge. Can you please do a down the line shot?

Thanks so much guys! My truck is a shout out to all of you, since after joining this forum I have merely followed your lead on what to do. If only about 10 more people could get the RIPP supercharger, then I could tell my wife that it's a required upgrade to "maximize the specific output of my cubic displacement while at the same time optimizing fuel economy."

For events in NJ, you should definitely check out the NJ Mopar Group (www.njmopargroup.com) and please come by and hang with us at "Cops and Rodders" in Hackettstown every Thursday night. It's a really great car show with an excellent turnout. The NJ Mopar Group has regular get togethers in 4 or 5 counties and a big shindig in the month of June at the founder's house.

I will definitely take more pics for "GQJeff" and I think they do poke a little bit past the fender lip. If not, they make 22x10's to accomplish that goal.

Thanks again guys. Really, my truck would most likely be bone stock if it wasn't for all of the cool stuff you have inspired me to do.

P.S. forgot to mention: The only thing I changed in the last year was the wheels. I had already done tint, shark fin, stripes, exhaust, intake, tune and pedal kit. I've talked to more people in the last two days and received more compliments then I have in the last year. If you are on the fence about these wheels, don't be. The really look like they were made for the truck. Best money I've spent on any upgrade on any vehicle.

Steve -

PM me and I'll give you my cell so we can meet up at Cops & Rodders or at the 7th annual Mopar Group party.

Also - did Tony at Designcutz do your engine cover insert? Sweet!

Thanks!
Frank
