Found a set of SRT4 Caliber Wheels locally for a good deal,

So 225/45/19 on a Lifted FDII Compass, will be putting larger tires on in the spring to fill up the gap.

Oh nice! I wanted to do this to mine but I've had no luck finding any used ones on my area. I instead went with some 18" Dodge Challenger rims.

Is the offset the same as the original rims?

Offset is 42mm, I think stock is 39mm on the factory 17" wheels, I have 1.25" spacers, and i'm still running them front and rear, even though the tires are small in diameter tan any stock size on compass, the spacers are required because i'm lifted............as you lift these vehicles the wheels actually move closer in towards the suspension components.

Do the challenger rims work, didn't think the bolt pattern was the same, I used to have a set of 18" Caliber RT chrome wheels, I ran 225/60/18 tires on those wheels. Had those before I was lifted.

I see, the srt4's definitely look much better than the rt's though :p

Yeah I think Jeep should have offered us a rim with less positive offset to give us a bit more clearance for tires/lift.

The challenger rims are indeed a bit off. They are 5x115 and have a larger center hub of 71.5 mm. To get them to work I had to use hub centric rings and wobble nuts. What I also found out, is that these have a small positive offset, like using a 20mm spacer.

Those wheels look good. Haven't heard of wobble nuts, before, might have to look into them, might open up more possibilities for different sets of wheels.

I know 235/55/19 will fit just fine,

Would like to run 245/55/19 except that is a hair larger than the 245/65/17 I have now, and there is very little room so i'm a bit Leary about going even just a bit bigger
