No, I don't think so.
Not wide enough for you? :D

That will be wicked. A big help in getting the power to the ground. Because as we all know, that's the main obstacle SRT-4 owners face. And hopefully there will be room for improvement, even with 255 wide tires. I hope that wasn't a misprint.

Here is the excert from the DCX Press release:

The all-new 2007 Dodge Caliber SRT4 rides on SRT-unique 19-inch cast aluminum wheels with 225/45R19 W-rated Goodyear tires. Wheel hubs and bearings on all four corners are adapted from Chrysler Group mid-size cars for strength.

Guys, read again.... Motortrend 255 /45z19 tires
Dodge 225/45R19 W-rated


Am I missing something? These numbers do not match even though Dan says they do.

Well, from the dodge website the wheels are 19x7.5. Coverted that's 190mm wide, so the tire will probably be a +1.5 maybe a little less and that will be 225mm. However, if you can fit a +2.5 tire on that rim, then you can get away with a 255mm tire. ;)

Those are tentative factory specs, so they may change sometime prior to production but I doubt it. I believe the tire’s being used is the Goodyear Eagle RSA’s. They seem to be the only tires Goodyear currently makes in 255/45R19.

I can only go by what were told, I guess well find out when the official Caliber SRT-4 production information is released.
PS. When I reread my post I realized they didnt match at all, sorry for the confusion ;)
