Well, - today I went to the local store to get my new 275/40/20 General Tire Gmax AS-3 tires for my 2010 Charger SRT-8. The car is totally stock. To my surprise, they did NOT fit in the front. They were clearly rubbing what appears to be a control bar, when turned.
I did read that many tried 275/40/20 size tire in the front on the same car with no issues and, in fact, this size came recommended. So, now I am at a loss as to what gives? The tires did fit in the rear just fine.
The question is, - what to do at this point, - should I forgo on 275/40/20 and go with 255/45/20 all around? is there anything else I should look at in order to solve this somehow?
Get a small spacer, probably 3 to 5mm it's the cheapest solution
Spacer will clear it,or shaving the bolt alittle will give u the needed clearance

Plenty of people have run 275-40-20s on the front. Maybe the alignment is off? I would recommend a 3mm spacer on the front.
Thank uou guys for your. opinions . I would rather not use a spacer. if I can help it.
perhaps I should go with staggered set-up. I can keep 275/40/20 in the back and use 255/45/20 in the front . Or should I go with 245/45/20 up front ? Does it really matter?
I'd go 255-45-20 all around.
Did it rub with the weight on the car or just in the air with the wheels hanging? And you didn't mention if these were on stock or aftermarket wheels.

do a staggered setup...245 or 255 in the front and the 275 in the back.

For those that have run 275/40/20's on all corners, I'm assuming you had same rim (width) on all corners? What was the rim width?

I have a staggered setup of 275/40/20 in the rear and 255/45/20 in the front and even then I was told by the dealership that there was rubbing problems in the rear. That was only with the car on a hoist and when the suspension naturally pulls the wheels in. I told them that it would work and to just put the car on the ground and it worked fine. I am sure that this is probably the case with the front wheels. Make sure that you put the cars weight on the suspension and roll the car forward to make sure that the suspension doesn't straighten out the wheels so that the tires clear.
I have been running 275/40/20 vredesteins for several years and have even completed (27) total 30 minute track sessions on road racing courses........have not had a rubbing issue.
Racing is like sex.........why would you want it to only last 10 seconds?????
Road course session last 25-40 minutes each!!!!
