I am getting ready for winter driving in my new Challenger R/T. I have a set of '16 AWD Charger Pursuit wheels that I'd like to use for snow tires. I measured the offset of them to be 46.5mm. Is there any chance of being able to use these on my RWD Challenger?

Get RWD police wheels, you won't have to worry. Chances are the AWD ones will cause issues or be very close on a RWD car or they wouldn't have bothered with separate designs.

I tried 16" steeliness from a minivan on my 06 rwd rt. Sooooo close on the front but the caliper didn't clear. Worth a try but ended up upside down on the deal. Went with a set of take offs from an sxt challenger. Take a look, they're cheap and plentiful. Between charger challenger and 300, there are a lot of guys upgrading to 20 or more " and you can usually get them with the low mile tires

These cars never came with anything smaller than a 17" rim. Brake clearance is definitely a consideration.

The AWD Pursuit rims and wheel covers will only fit the AWD LD Chargers and the AWD Challenger. The RWD Pursuit rims and wheel covers will not work on an AWD car, as the front hubs are different.

The chrome hupcaps, incidentally, will interchange between any AWD or RWD rim. That's about it.

You will also need different lugnuts for each rim, and then each choice of hubcap or wheel cover. They aren't mix-n-match.

Basically:

RWD/AWD Chrome hubcap - 4895432AA
Correct lugnut - 6511418AA

RWD 18" Police Wheel Cover - ZY74ZDJAC
AWD 18" Police Wheel Cover - 5PC39GSAAA
RWD/AWD Wheel Cover Lugnut - 6510497AA

Why are these cars so hard to get wheels for?

OK so for the 2015 police pursuit AWD. I have found several different offsets. One forum states that they emailed the branch of dodge that deals with the law enforcement vehicles and gave an offset of
"Confirmed 18x7.5", and 5x115 pattern, but advised the offset is +49"
When I talked to discount tires on the phone they said that the car comes with an offset of +24 from the factory (which is what should be on my vehicle right now) A different site said that it comes with a +51 offset. Why are there so many different numbers for the same wheel?

Is it the Break size? I know that the pursuits come with a larger break other than that shouldn't anything that fits any other dodge AWD charger be the same? looking up for the current GT or anything like that as long as the car has the same lug pattern? I admit I need to research more into the offset thing, I don't have much personal knowledge on that one yet. Looking at some of the other parts numbers link end up leading to things like the following:

Part Number: 5PE92DD5AB
Supersession(s): 5PE92DD5AA

Part Number: 68214367AA
2524P
DODGE CHALLENGER 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 CHARGER 2015 2016 2017 | 68214367AA | 2524P | 2524 HOLLANDER | WHEEL | OEM ORIGINAL ALLOY WHEEL
ACTORY PART NUMBER 68214367AA
WHEEL SIZE20 X 8
BOLT PATTERN5 X 115

If any of those are correct then we should just have to look for a 20 x 8 bolt pattern 5 x 115 with an offset of +24 and it should work, right?

Many places don't distinguish between RWD and AWD wheels for these cars and that causes a lot of confusion. Since you have the car, pull of a stock wheel and measure the offset (Google for instructions).
Civilian AWD cars have used 18" or 19" tires. I don't think they ever ran 17" or 20" on AWD models though RWD cars did.

The key to all of this is: what are you trying to accomplish?

Snow tires.

You want a narrow tire in the snow, not wide. If we stay with OEM sizes, which makes it easier to calibrate the speedo, going "narrow" rules out anything above, say, the 19 × 8.5 aluminum with the 235/55/19 tires. Next, we must consider brake sizes. Beyond 2014, that will rule out any 17" size on an R/T. Therefore, we are left with 3 choices:

  • 2015+ 19" AWD aluminum rims with 235/55/19
  • 2011+ 18" RWD aluminums with 225/60/18.
  • 2011+ Pursuit RWD steel with either the 225/60/18.

All this talk of rim sizes and offsets and speedometer/odometer calibrations and tire sizes has my head spinning! My takeaway is never change rims or tire size, and if I want other rims I will buy the car they are attached to from the factory. :)
