like said 15's but like said not all will clear the calipers. I have the regular rota's for slicks for mine and they clear but the newer rota's modern started to carry won't fit.

So just make sure they will fit if not will be using spacers to clear the calipers.

I run 2nd gen 15" snowflake wheels on my SRT for winter. With new brakes I needed 3mm spacers up front to clear the calipers, now the pads are worn enough that I don't need the spacers anymore.

15 inch Kosi wheels work great for slicks on the srt-4. We are running 13 x 26 x 8.5 inch slicks on 13 x 8 Bogart wheels.
Had to install 2000 neon front spindles and calipers but for a drag car it was a good setup.
We call it the SRT-4 brake downgrade mod.
