I have a 2006 R/T and I just bought some stock SRT wheels. When I make sharp turns to get out of my driveway, they rub. Has anyone else had this problem? Any ideas what to do? Also, my tire pressure gauge comes on from time to time now. Please help.

I'll go check and come right back. I ordered them from Detroit Wheels and they sent them with tires but I never got specifics. I will get back to you in a few minutes. Thanks for the help

I think when you toss SRT rims on a non SRT you need to add wheel spacers in the front so that they don't rub... I think you need the 3mm spacers

Billet Tech has a good set Here, but you can also find lots on ebay and I'm sure most local wheel shops sell them.

visually I don't think it would make that big a difference, they only push the wheels out 3mm but if you are worried about your fronts sticking out more than the rears you can toss some spacers on the back wheels as well.

Thanks for all the help. I will go get some today. Does anyone know if there could be an actual problem since the tire pressure gauge started coming on, or is it most likely just the tire pressure... sorry for the dumb girl question.

Well the easy answer is to check the tire pressure. If the tire pressure is okay, you may have other issues. The tire pressure for the R/T wheels is 30psi. I don't know if it is the same for the SRT wheels but I would imagine that it should be close.

I don't think there is ANY way for these to work on your RT... you need to just sell them to me..... just kidding... Yup 3mm spacer is what I have heard too. Also maybe a sensor in the wheel is bad??? Good luck on getting it squared away! Jim

Well the sensor problem might be due to the lower profile tire... like stingray said the R/T's run with 30PSI the SRT's may run on something different (a higher or lower PSI) so the TPS "brain" in your car (which is still looking for 30PSI) sees an inflation problem.

That's what I'm thinking... I might be way off though.

I was actually thinking about doing the same and getting SRT wheels for my RT AWD so even if you have the wheels come in with the sensors installed the tire pressure light would come on?

Make sure you get wheels that fit an AWD, I don't think stock SRT wheels fit an AWD RT

The brake system is using the 5.7L Dodge Charger police car front calipers. It is actually the export 300C 5.7L pads and the police car brake pads will go on. You can buy those from Mopar. Those are a little more track capable if your main focus with the car is at the track.
