I have searched but not found many pics. I want to run a Mopar Rallye 17x9 rim with a 275 tire on the front and back of my Challenger. Anyone got any pics of this combo or any other 17x9 / 275 wheel and tire on the front ?

I've seen these rims 17"x9" front AND rear with 275-40-17 tires... no problems at all... fits a-ok!... perfect backspacing... tire diameter is a little small... but just get used to that.

I have 18x9-255 front and 18x10.5 275 0n back. Ridler wheels though not rally rims.

Your car looks awesome! While not exactly what you are looking for, I just installed 17 X 10 with 275/40-17's on the back. I went with 17 X 8's on the front with 245/40-17's. There is plenty of room still. I'd be careful about backspacing. I have 4.5" back spacing. I tried the same size wheels with 5.5" backspacing, but it was a little too close to the chassis on the rear for my comfort. I have relocated the rear spring perches inboard 1". I have also installed the R/T steering box with longer steering arm and idler arm and QA-1 upper control arms (for more caster). So you have all the information. I have no clearance issues. Ironically, I have the same type of tires as SFEBody in the previous post.

Thanks for the replies ! Some fantastic looking machines here 😀 As luck would have it my rims arrived in the last few days so I was able to do a test fit on the car with no issues. I’m planning to use the acorn center caps from the original rims. Next job for the winter is to upgrade the suspension and brakes. I’ve gone for a mix of Hotchkis (torsion bars, leafs, subframe connection and shocks), PST (upper + lower (reinforcement kit) control arms and sway bars) Baer T4 brakes. Looking forward to spring !

They do look good! How do you like the ride? Do you notice any difference in the handling?
