Unfortunately after taking these pictures I started having transmission problems. :(

Yeah they barely fit with those tires. Glad I got coilovers, or they wouldn't fit at all with that offset.

Car all of a sudden didn't want to downshift to 3rd gear from 4th. So I tried to go back in 4th and it didn't want to go in! So at this point I am at about 25mph so I tried to go into 2nd, no good. Put the transmission in neutral and start letting up on the clutch and the car feels like it wants to grab a gear even though I am in neutral. Coasted into a neighborhood about a half a mile from my house and pushed in the clutch and while I was lifting up I slid it into 2nd gear. Took 2nd gear all the way home. Transmission makes a noise when in neutral and clutch is NOT pushed in.
Noise:

Once the clutch is pushed in the noise goes away. Haven't had time to really mess with it yet due to work. Car has 129200 on it. The ACT DN4 HDSS setup has been on there since July of 2009 with new pivotball, Mopar TOB and shift fork. About 50k miles on the setup. Original master/slave cylinder.

Thanks guys though, really happy with the wheels.

Sounds like the clutch may have went up, possibly broke a spring on the clutch.

Thanks man, Do you have the same wheels on your ride? *Looking at sig* Yeah I just got some CF eyelids in the mail too from http://www.special-carbonfiber.com/ They look great! I hope there is nothing really bad going in my tranny. I do have an extra one though. :)

I have no third or reverse in my srt. It acts like it shifts into them but you let the clutch out and it's nothing but grinding gears. Best of luck.

Very nice wheels. I like.


I'm sure you'll get the transmission sorted out. It sounds like the clutch isn't acting very much like a clutch.

Car looks great as always. I'm not sure if I like these new wheels as much as your previous ones, but the lightweight makes up for it :thumbup:

Also, it seems like the color of your front window tint is a different color than your rear windows. lol
