Hey everyone,
I am registered in this message board for a long time and have read a lot of interesting things.
I have also asked some questions and got the answers really fast.
Just again I am from Germany and I want to buy a 2008 SRT-8 Charger in the next 2 weeks.
I have sold my 1999 Trans Am last week and now I am able to buy the Charger.
I have a friend in the New York who will support me buying the car and buying extra parts.
I have asked what are the typical issues on the Charger and the answer was this:

---
* white gunk and/or ammonia smell in coolant
* tranny leak ( do search for particulars)
* grooved rotors ('06 early '07 models particularly)
* chipped paint on rear bumper from trunk lid
* missing under carriage plastic cover under engine bay
* rattles from sunroof
* dirt or bubbles in paint (earlier models seemed to have issues)
* faded molding
---

I think these are the most important things to look for.

But now I have some more questions. I want to buy an extra set of rims to mount winter tires.
Will these wheels fit? Is this the original offset (+20mm)

I want to buy a Black car and I want the rims to fit the color of the car. What do you think is the best. On the pictures the grey one looks good, but I think black chrome will also look good.

Can you tell me where I can buy a set of the tire pressure sensors which I need for this extra set of rims.

Thanks very much for your help, if I have more questions I will just post them here.

Best regards

The list you have of things to look for is pretty solid. Almost all of that stuff should be fixed by TSBs by now.

I am no expert on winter tires or rims so I will let someone else help you out.
