I have a 2007 AWD R/T and am looking at putting on 255/55R18 tires but would like to know the best wheel width/offset for pushing them out closer to the fenders. Not looking to Lower because in Wyoming I can always use as much ground clearance as possible. If anyone has any other Ideas for size/offset combos I would appreciate it. Pics would be awesome.

I believe 255/55/18 are the biggest you can go. Not sure with AWD.
I run the same size Nitto Nt420s. Love them they are great!

I have a 05 RT AWD. I am running stock tires with a 24 offset rim for the last 3 months with no problems.

I had 245/65/18 on it, and currently have 245/70/18 on it. No rubbing or issues. I also have RWD RT wheels on my AWD RT though.

I was doing some research and found that a 245 / 55r / 18 is very very close in dia. to the stock 225/60 dia meaning your speedo won't know the difference yet they are about 1.25 inches wider what I haven't found yet is if the stock 7.5 rim is wide enough

225/60R18 Equal 28.6" 8.9" 18 x 6-8"

245/55R18 Equal28.6" 9.6" 18 x 7-8.5"

That's sweet! How do you like it lowered? Did it help with the body roll, or did you do it more for the astethics?

That looks good that setup fills the wheel wells nicely

Don't know if you're aware, but awd magnums sit an inch higher suspension wise than rwd.

All your various tire/wheel combination sizes are helpful, BUT. Nobody is stating overall tire diameter or offset backspacing. This info would help members make a better informed decision on their tire/wheel combos.
Everyone is big on the super low profile tires as low as 40s or 35s, but has anyone advanced past the stock 225/55/18s? I'm contemplating going 245/70/18s or even 75s. Quality brand syped studless mud & snow tires for year round useage.
I realize I'll loose a bit in hard cornering due to side wall flex, but I'm not planning on entering any road races with my '06 AWD. Part of my objective is to fill the AWD fender well with tire, not open air space.
The other part is the fact that I run syped mud & snows on my '93 grand Cherokee wildcat radial A/T 245/75/16s. They preform well for my needs year round, on & off road. They also last longer, because they run cooler due to tread composition & being syped. In ice the sype is as good as chains.
P.S. IS IT TRUE THAT AWD BACK SPACEING IS DIFFERENT THAN RWD? THANKS!

I go a little wider on my tires since there seems to be plenty of rim for it. I have the R/T 20inch chrome rim package option on my 2008 (previous owner got it) so I run 255/45/20 on stock suspension. I've run this size through a couple generations of tires at this point with no problems.
