Wheels, Tires, and Springs

I'm looking into a few suspension upgrades for my 01 SE... such as H&R springs and new wheels/tires.

However, I have to rather pondorous questions;

1) What profile tire would you guys recomend for a 17" wheel? is 45 to thin? how do the 55's handle on the R/T?

2) Can we agree on a spring package for LH? Do the H&R springs still cause vibration with engine spacers? Do we know where to get the spacers or do they come with the package?

Hi i have a 2000 R/T with inthe summer time i run Potenza`s 225/45/ZR 17 inch. They look fine and they handle much better than stock tires. Can`t wait to get them back on this spring.

With your 45 tires, do you still feel like you need stiffer springs / shocks or is the RT tuning apropriate?

Thats really great. Moparperformance and I had been skwalking about suspension parts from a 300m special, but thats just the initial "more is better" syndrome of analysis.

I would rather get R/T springs and shocks than go with something for a car with diferent weight and center of gravity characteristics.

I'd really like to see pics of those wheels and tires you put on if you could email das freund.

Thanks for your suggestions; its exactly the point of reference I was looking for.
