    2018 Scat Pack wheels won't fit my 2012 Challenger RT Classic

    I have a 2012 Challenger RT Classic and I was trying to install wheels off a 2018 Charger Scat pack. The fronts won't fit. They're hitting the suspension. Has anybody have this issue? And what was the remedy?

    I've read 3mm spacer will do the trick.

    3mm spacers won’t work. It looks like I would need 1/2” spacers for the wheels to work. Has anybody installed these wheels on their Challenger RT Classic? Shouldn’t these wheels have the same specs?

    Well I just did a Bembo upgrade and used 2017 Scat front kuckles and they do curve in an inch or more than my 2013. I had inch and a half clearance between spring and knuckle curve, now maybe a half inch.

    That's because the Scats and SRT's (all the way back to 05) use the same front knuckle. Regular R/T's and down have a different knuckle. He's been told this. Couple times. Keeps wondering why wheels made for a Scat R/T won't fit his regular R/T just because they both say "R/T".
