I recently bought new Viper rims for my 2010 charger sxt and I've had a few minor issues with getting them on the car, but I think I have mostly everything settled now. The remaining issue is that the guys at Dodge were worried that my tire sizes were too far off that they would mess up the car's abs. I was told in the past that these sizes should work and the guys at Dodge said that they might, they just didn't want to risk mounting the tires since I wouldn't be able to return them. My question is, will I have any issues driving the staggered 20x9 and 20x10 vipers on a 2010 Dodge Charger SXT with 275-40-20 on the front, 295-40-20 on the back Nexen Roadian HP tires? I don't want to return tires or anything if I do not have to.
Thanks for the help in advance

I ran 275/40/20 on all 4 with no issues. I believe wildbee659 ran 295 on his rear with no issues. If anything you may have to roll the rear fenders.

at this point, we think that they will fit, but apparently the abs will be off from the tire sizes being too different. does anyone know anything about this? i know that the speedometer will be off, but what about the brakes and how the car drives. apparently everything will be messed up if the tire sizes are too far apart

Wish I had a better answer for you man. I kept my tires 35/20 because it kept the overall dimensions the same. Let us know if you get an answer as i am curious as well.

i believe those will fit. 313 matt has staggered on a v6. If you have a predator you might have to tune the car for the new tire size but it shouldnt effect ABS

I'll deal with getting a predator at a later date since right now i just want the car to run safely without any major issues. the guys at dodge basically said that they haven't tried that particular setup on a v6, but they said that 245-45-20 in the front and 275-40-20 in the back would definitely work. they didn't want to mount the tires just to find out that i would have to return two after probably voiding the warranty.

As far as I know several members on here have run 275/40/20 all around like BigJuice. I have used 295/35/20(just because Nitto Invo's don't come in 295/40/20)and now 315/35/20 in the rear with fenders rolled and lowered. In the rear 275/40/20, 295/40/20 will work without any issues. They are about the same diameter as 255/45/20 so there shouldn't be an issue with the ABS. he 305/35/20 and 315/35/20 will also work but you may have to roll the fenders, mine is lowered and I had the fenders rolled because of some minor rubbing with 315's.

Well There you have it. Do the damn thing. I'm switching my rear 275/40 for a 295/40 this fall.

I run 275/40/20 on all four corners with zero issues. I don't think you'll have any major issues show up.

I'm quite sure when they bring up a problem with the ABS is because of the different overall diameter of the front and rear tires. This would really only be apparent with staggered setups.
Always, the best thing to do is calculate the overall tire diameter. Assuming your stock wheels are the 20's with 245/45/20.

Stock = 28.68"
275/40/20 = 28.66"
295/40/20 = 29.29"
295/35/20 = 28.13"
305/35/20 = 28.41"
315/35/20 = 28.68"

So, if you run 275/40/20 in the front and 295/40/20 in the rear there's over a half inch difference in tire height. Not sure how much difference before possible ABS issues. If you're not lowered and find the right offset, you could run a 315/35/20 tire out back and be the same height as the front.

Those are going to be some wide tires. I am running 245/35/20 in the front and 275/35/20 in the rear.

hey did it mess with your speedometer and also did you have to do anything to your suspension? I want to do the same thing to my 2014 sxt challenger 245/20/20 on front and 275/20/20 in rear.

I am running with 295/45/20 in the rear and 245/45/20 in the front. I was told the 275/45/20 wouldn't fit but 275/40/20 would work. Is this true or was the tire guy just trying to stick me for what he wanted to sell?
