I'm looking to replace the factory wheels on my SRT8 with something like this while retaining the stock 245/45/20 tires:
These are the Incubus Shylock I found at 402 Motoring.
What I DO understand is that very few wheels (with the original tire size) seem to fit the MSRT8 due to the Brembo's, correct?
What I DON'T understand is what "offset" means? What offset do I need (or is ok) for my MSRT8? I've called and emailed some vendors but have gotten different and confusing answers, so I'm still lost.
I plan on lowering my car but have no intention going to a 22" tire, nor do I want to use spacers. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
And you may commence the laughing now...

Nodody should be laughing at you about asking questions, we were all new at one time. That is how we learn about these cars.
The offset of a rim is how much a rim will stick out from the side of car, in basic terms. Its the measurement between the mating surface between the hub and rim and the outside lip of the rim. I'm sure someone will be able to better explain then that.

A true hot rodder wouldn't be content until he had created a car so violent, so hairy, so totally sick that the very act of dropping the hammer would result in instant death. Anything less results in the need to go faster.
i was always told that 8.5 - 9.5mm is what we could fit upto, but don't quote me on that
I say PM (private message) Ernie at 402 motoring. He really know his stuff about rims, offsets and what fits the SRT-8's
Nice wheels, but don't be afraind to go with bigger meat.
(Waiting "patiently" for the 300C SRT8 8-speed) Coming.....soon?
Actually the offset is the distance between the centerline of the wheel and the mating surface of the hub. The higher the offset number the further the wheel will tuck in.
Best thing you can do in my opinion is google "Wheel Offset". It will give you a picture with the definition. I didnt understand it at first and it was a critical learning curve as I have a AWD Charger and the offset is 55mm. Its better to ask the question than to screw something up. Most information is free.... screw ups cost you double.... which would you choose. There are some smart folks on this forum... and I am sure the answer can be found. The search box works wonders too if you havent used it yet on the forum. I was able to find out loads of info that way. Good luck and Happy hunting
The offset of a wheel is what locates the tire and wheel assembly in relation to the suspension. More specifically, it is the measured distance between the hub mounting surface and the center line of the rim. Below is an explanation of the various types of offsets which are pictured in the above graphic.
A positive offset occurs when the hub mounting surface is on the street side (the side you see) of the center line of the rim. Most factory rims will have this type of offset. Zero Offset
When the hub mounting surface is centered within the rim, it is known as a zero offset. Negative Offset
If the hub mounting surface is on the brake side of the center line of the rim, it is considered a negative offset or "deep dish".
Note that extensive negative offset can potentially cause increased steering wheel kick-back and place additional stresses on the vehicle's entire suspension.Please feel free to drop by or phone a store near you if you require additional facts about wheel offsets.
