    I run 255/55-18's on my stock 2005 300C wheels. They fill in the rear wheel well and add extra width.
    2005 Chrysler 300C 5.7 SBE, ported big valved heads, 784ac lifters, SRT 6.1 intake manifold, SRT shorties, custom grind Billy Drakeford cam, SLP LM1, MTCM and GETRAG 3.06 swap.

    Nothing fancy......right now I have a set of Cooper SUV 255/55's on it. The tread is a little "aggressive" looking for a tire on a car but they hook up very well on my car.

    I went from the OE Continental 225/60x18s to Michelin 235/55x18s, to Michelin 255/55x18's, back to the stock size 225/60x18 BFGs. After getting rid of those terrible Contis, I haven't really been able to tell the difference in handling/traction with the last 3 sets. I did notice a drop in highway gas mileage when I went to 255s. I used my Superchips to change the tire diameter in the computer in order to keep the speedo/odom correct. I think Michelins are the best tires you can buy.

    Was thinking of getting those as they are quite a bit cheaper than the ones I was planning on

    06 MRT running some Falkens because they were the only stock size on location the day I bought her with dry rot that needed immediate replacing.
    They’re quiet, grip way beyond what I expected, and didn’t break the bank. They protested spinning off the line without ignorant throttle application while in totally stock form, and there’s virtually no protest now that I’ve rebuilt her and added shorties, airhammer, and diablo 91cai tune
