Best size tire for Hellcat and Srt-10 wheels

After hours of brutally searching for the right wheels for my '04, I finally came to the realization that the these OEM wheels are so much better looking on these trucks than anything else. I'm really leaning towards the 22" bronze hellcats. Those or the hyper black hellcat and gunmetal srt-10s.

I'm dropping the rear end 2" Saturday so I want to make sure I get the right size tires.

Trying to find the right tire/rim combo is a never ending quest for many of us. Be aware it can get real expensive quick if you haven't truely settled on what your final "look" is going to be. Stu, has pictures of his srt-10 wheels. I'm going to guess you won't be happy with just a shackle drop and will soon install a flip kit... but it take time sorting out the "look"... you'll get it right sooner I hope than later...

I like the SRT10 22" wheels. Their heavy but, you can use your truck as a truck with them. Also keep in mind, the heavier and taller wheel/tire will make the truck feel slower and it will be. Then you'll be looking for some new lower gear ratio to make the truck feel faster again. See how it's like a domino affect...

PS. Keep all of the oem stuff you take off the truck. You'll never know when they might come in handy like going back to stock.

One of the biggest problems we have is there are only a few options due to our 5x5.5 bolt pattern. Corporate doesn't want us putting light weight passenger rims on them.
