Does anyone know what the smallest inside diameter of a wheel would be to fit over the front calipers on the 04's??

My thinking is if I can get down to 19 inch wheels I would have a much larger selection of tires. I will hopefully come up with a good lowering setup to fill up the wheel wells.

Some nice fat Road slicks for the back and step down the width for the front to give it that Viper Stance.

I may have to go to 18" but not sure if they will fit over the front calipers? Craig (SRT-10x100), do you know the exact wheels used on the silver bullet for those awsome runs??

I really think we need to address the traction issues of these trucks to get the full potential out of them and with 22" wheels we have very little selection of tires and I dought it will get any better!!

I really havn't gone searching yet I want to have my sizing down before I go searching. When they say this is a 19 inch wheel, that measurement is from the outside diameter correct? So you could have various inside diameters depending on the style, correct???

Excuse me if I sound ignorant on this subject but I am determined to get a better set up for traction. 19" may not have enough selection either so that puts me at 18" and that will limit the selection of wheels.

Someone posted on here who had purchased a new set of 22 inch wheels that wouldn,t fit over the front calipers. That really confuses me.

Does anyone know of a company that will sit down and draw up a custom wheel that will fit and manufacture it??

22's will fit over the wheel. There can be contact with the side of the caliper with some wheels. As a rough estimate, subtract 0.6" from the wheel size for an ID guess. www.ccwheel.com will make what you want. I gave them the measurements on mine but haven't got back with him. If ccwheel is porn, then make it ccwheels. I made that mistake at work and couldn't figure out why the site was blocked.

wheel fitment

what i have noticed since i have been installing the lowering kits we make is it is also a matter of the aluminum knuckle that your A arms attach to. with an 18" wheel, it angles towards the wheel and the smaller diameter wheel would touch it, i think that is why fastjack could only run a 7" wide 18" wheel. the inside diameter contacts the knuckle. PS, with our lowering kit to put the front springs in, only takes 5 minutes! i will post pics of the knuckle i am talking about, and a step by step pictionary of how to lower the truck next week. very easy. only need a jack, 2 stands and some sockets.
