You can go as small as 28.3" in tire diameter to keep everything calibrated correctly on our cars, but no smaller.
    .

    At a +24mm offset, would this put the tire right at the edge of the stock fender?

    On a RWD car, +24 is a good offset for a rear 10.5" wide wheel. For the front, the offset should be about +13 to +18

    With offsets, the smaller the number, the further out the wheels edge will be.

    Go here to learn morw about offsets.

    Interestingly, Tirerack just told me that a 20x8.5 with a 28mm offset would work on my car. Granted, that is only 0.15" more, and the wheel isn't 9-10" wide...sounds like it should work based on the fact that a 9.5" wide with a 24mm offset will work. I did a thread search for "8.5" and came up with nothing, but there will be less hanging out on both sides. But I think you will b limited to a 245mm wide tire, a 255 may fit, but be stretched.

    I'm looking to go the other way... just for cheap winter/snow tires for my SRT8. Initially a few local shops told me that I had to stick with 20" tires to clear the brakes, but then I found online that Tire Rack says that a few 18" wheels will work. Does anyone know for sure what range of offset/backspacing will allow 18" rims to clear SRT brakes? I can get 4 new 18" wheels and snow tires cheaper than just 4 new 20" snow tires.

    Thanks in advance.

    Personally offsets and things of that nature are my weak point for knowledge. But I can tell you without a doubt that you can go as small as 17" on SRT vehicles. I have 17" drag radials I use for the track. Personally if it was me I would go for 18" like you stated rather than 17" . Sorry I can't help for offset.
