Not bad looking wheels.
I know Phuckin'Phil and others had/have the 18" 10 spokes with no rubbing issues with the right tire size.
No help on the tire size, sorry, mine are just factory size 16's

Just make sure you get no larger than a 255 outer diameter. I used a 245 OD on my 18's and that is what I recommend.

AWD wheels will not fit due the the different offset IIRC.

You do know you can't use the tires that come with them, correct?

He might be able to run them. I'm running the stock Charger 18" wheels and tires and i only get a little rubbing on the inner rear fender well when i have 3 people in the back seat. I guess it depends what size they are.

Im guessing its rubbing right on the strut mount? if so the only thing you can do is replace the tires.

yeah my dad used to be a mechanic so he says we can unbolt the strut, jack it up drill a new hole for the bolt and put the bolt back in and it should raise the strut so we have plenty of clearance.

sound plausible?
