    My Charger is getting ready to come out of paint and body. Looking for tire wheel combos. Im sure there is a post somewhere with what I need but I cant locate it.
    My setup,
    69 Charger, stock front and rear
    Looking for 245 front and 295 rear setup
    Wheel range 16-18 inch
    Need ideas including back spacing.
    Images would be a great plus

    Here's mine with 245/40/18 with 4.75" backspace & 295/40/18's with 5.5" backspace.

    The 295's do rub a little only on the big bumps. I used to have 285/40's and no issues with those so I might go back to that size when the time comes for new tires.

      Your car is very nice. Thank you for the information and I'm guessing your rims are 8 and 10 inches wide.

      4.5" will work depending on how low you have it. Too low and it might contact the brace inside the fender but if it is at a normal height it shouldn't be an issue. 5" pushes the wheel in too far and will rub at full lock.
