I am looking to replace my aging wheels on my car. They have road rash from the previous owner and it looks like they never cleaned off the brake dust either. They need to go.

I want 20x9 sized wheels. I have a Brilliant Black car and like the contrast of Chrome and Black. My son says get all black. He can do that when it's his car.

I'm going nuts, there are so many choices out there. I wouldnt mind a black wheel with some chrome around the outside. What confuses me the most, is 20x8.5 and 20x10. I have General G-Max tires size 275/40/ZR20s on the car. So i'm not sure if i can do any other size but the 20x9. that is the most confusing part. I've tried to read some of the info here. Can someone explain that in 1st grade English?

Any suggestings for a black/chrome wheel? i like this look but can't tell what kind of wheels they are. Thanks in advance.

You have many choices , whether it be 20x9 all around or a staggered 20x8.5 and 20x10 setup. To help you out, about how much have you budgeted to spend?

This would be a staggered setup: 20x8.5 wheels on the front and 20x10 wheels on the rear. This will permit wider tires to be mounted on the back of the car, eg, 245/45 on the front and 275/40 on the rear.

Why do it? Wider tires on the rear look better to many people. Why not do it? Can't rotate your tires except side to side.

I'm looking to spend about $1500 on the wheels. Turns out the ones pictured in the photo I posted are about $1100 EACH. Oops. So i'm still looking for something similar and in 20x9. I have non-staggered OEM wheels with 275/40/20 . Still looking. Lots of choices in 20x8.5 and 20x10 but smaller choices for 20x9 that I have found.

Do those SRT replicas actually fit on an SRT??

Most don't, but if yours do I might be a customer for a set...:)

Please verify that they do!
Yes, our fitment guide shows the SRT Replicas fitting the SRT8 Chargers. Give us a ring and we'll be happy to help you with a set. :bigthumb:

Hmmmm, get rid of my $2,500.00 FORGED oem wheels for some cheap replica want-a-b's?? I'll have my factory forged wheels rechromed in black chrome.

4000+ pound cars with suspensions as stiff as the SRT's need forged wheels. These cars came from the factory with forged wheels for a reason. They need them.

I made this mistake on an Audi S4 I had. I replaced the forged wheels that were on the car with cast replicas and I was constantly breaking/splitting wheels. When you combine a 4000+ pound car with limited suspension travel and low profile tires you end up with broken wheels unless you go with forged aluminum wheels. A set of Weld Racing forged wheels are very expensive at about $800.00 a piece. A brand new set of OEM SRT wheels will save you money. If you already have a set used up SRT wheels just send them off to get restored. If you want them in black they can paint, powder coat, and even chrome them in black. I'm going for the black chrome look when I get mine refinished.

Everything in that paragraph is just false. You bought the super cheap, garbage wheels for your audi, and I'm willing to bet you didn't put 20s on your S4. There are quality cast wheels out there, and they are usually less expensive than the alternative, don't be ignorant because of sour grapes.

OP, get whatever wheels you'd like and don't let negativity scare you into making a more expensive decision; the media scares people into doing things they don't want every day. I think the replicas are nice, and that's a good price.
