    It can’t be rubbing on the rotor. Maybe rubbing on the caliper? Are they srt wheels?? There’s your problem. You need spacers or srt wheels

    The RT wheels are 17" dia and may not clear the brake caliper. If not probably 19" or the 20" SRT wheels. I have 15" rotor Wilwood brakes and they clear 19" wheels just fine.

    Yes the rt wheels do not fit over the brembos, you need srt wheels or some aftermarket

    OEM 20's, aftermarket or spacers. There's a reason they put 20x9/9.5's on the SRT cars (except Demon)....

    Most of the rt wheels are 20” but they are 8” wide and the offset does not allow for enough room for the brembos
