Are they forged?
I'd see if I can get them to reduce the pricing a little more and then get all the wheels powdercoated - shouldn't be too pricey depending on what finish you are going for.

That way you end up with a brand new set!

What do you mean forged how can I tell? Are they the real oem wheels Or reproductions?

They appear to be the "real" deal. Look for one of these part numbers on them to be sure 5ZW66VXWAA or 5ZW66VXWAB (one numbers for the black wheels, the other for the grey ones but I don't know which is which.) If they don't have one of those numbers then they are replicas.

Powder coating is about $150 a wheel. I'm having a set of Mopar 2529 (five spoke) being done in gunmetal & clear coat right now.

I'd make sure they all had that Mopar stamp on them 20x9.5 is the right stamp and size etc. Earlier SRT wheels had such a faint stamp that I had some SRT Challenger wheels poweder coated in a texturized black and it covered it up! Although those Challenger wheels have the "SRT" and "Alcoa Forged" right on the front so pretty easy to tell they are real OEM! They're sitting in my garage was going to sell them before pandemic :rolleyes:

I always liked those Hellcat wheels, wear out the tires and then you can powder coat them before putting on a new set. That way you can see them on the car and figure out what color you'd like.
