Keep it with the 18s the base Calibers come with. That would do it ok, I think.

Manufacturers dont use put the biggest rims possible, there are for 2 reasons mainly. As cars get heavier, the need for bigger, more powerful brakes becomes a need. As brake rotors grow, so do rim sizes. The other IS for asthetic purposes...

Now, my stratus doesnt have big brakes by any means, but 16s barely fit, and 15s are a wishful thought, thats why it came standard w/ 17s.

Keep in mind, the SRT4 comes w/ 13inch front brakes...:D
