    Chryser 300C/300S 20in Wheels on 2005 STS

    Here is my 2005 STS V6 RWD. Picked it up from the auction a few months ago as it needed some care. Someone had already started replacing the front end with the 08up version so I finished that up. On the engine I replaced a good amount of the gaskets, spark plugs, 2 coils, and installed new timing chain, guides, and pensioners along with a new oil pump and water pump.


    I also replaced all 4 Wheel hubs as they were in poor condition. Replaced all brake pads. Installed a rebuilt LSD Rear differential along with a new Center Bearing and Transmission Mount. I also picked up some 20x8 Chrysler 300S wheels and put on some new tires. Here are few pics of the current state.

    Now that its safely on the road, I will start the next steps and do a few more mods.

    I actually really like those.

    How's the hub area?

    Can you measure the face of the rotor to the inner edge of the spokes. Wanna see if my brembos would clear.

    Re: Chryser 300C/300S 20in Wheels on 2005 STS

    The wheel measures 72.6mm hub area and the STS hub is 70.6mm so there is only a difference of 1mm between hub and wheel all around

    The wheels are fairly concave and I will take a measurement but I believe Brembo's will be able to clear. I actually have a caliper coming as well so I will be test fitting soon.

    They actually look really good on the car, proper stance, kind of gives it an ATS feel in my mind.
    Not to mention a great price. was that with tires on them or were the tires that were on them shot?
    (asking since you bought new rubber)

    I assume your 2005 model has no TPMS to complain about your wheel change?

    It was just bare wheels for $350. They actually had TPMS sensors on them from the Chrysler but I removed them and installed standard stems as I have no TPMS on my 05. The tires came out to a little over $600 installed from Discount tire. The stock Chrysler tire is a 245/45 so it wouldn't have worked anyway as it would have thrown off the speedo by about 9%

    Did you do the 08+ front end swap or is that how it came?

    I bought the car from an insurance company and the bumper was already on so I completed the swap

    I was all ready to say YOU PUT WHAT ON WHERE?!

    However, it does look nice. Good job! Also, THANK YOU for not donking it with even larger wheels which make it so you can't turn.
